  • 1/2 cup onion diced
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 cups chicken broth low sodium
  • 1 1/2 pounds cremini mushrooms diced
  • 1/4 cup flat-leaf parsley fresh, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • salt to taste
  • parmesan grated, for garnish


  • Using a medium soup pot, saute onion and garlic in the olive oil until translucent, about 6 minutes. Pour in the chicken broth, and add the mushrooms, parsley, and salt and pepper. Cook at a gentle boil until the mushrooms are wilted, approximately 10 minutes. Add salt to taste.
  • Alternately, if you prefer a smoother soup you can puree the soup. To puree, use an immersion/ hand blender placed in the pot or fill a blender halfway each time, holding down the lid with a kitchen towel, and pureeing the soup until smooth, starting on low and increasing to high. A touch of milk (dairy or alternatives) can be blended into the pureed soup for a creamer consistency.
  • Serve topped with a small amount of Parmesan cheese and additional parsley for garnish.

  1. Will this be good without parsley? Is it needed or should I substitute something else for it? I just really don’t like parsley.

    1. Michelle, Feel free to leave it out. If you’d like to add another herb, I recommend fresh rosemary. 🙂

  2. Is the calorie count correct? Also I’m lactose intolerant so I can’t have the cheese, why do you recommend to replace that? Can cashew milk be substituted instead to make it creamy? I’m just guessing that’s what the parmesan is for?

    1. Yes, the calorie count is correct! You can leave the parmesan out of the recipe, no need to substitute! This isn’t a cream based soup, so it is dairy free. The soup in the photo looks creamy because it has been pureed.

  3. I made this and it was delicious. I doubled the onions, and also added a little fresh basil. did add a little whole milk at the end and used an immersion blender at the end. thanks so much, it’s a keeper!5 stars
