This Slow Cooker Mushroom Soup is everything you love about a creamy mushroom soup. And since we made it with healthy ingredients and easy preparation, you’ll want to make it again and again. The mushroom flavor beautifully complements the onions, garlic, herbs, and white balsamic vinegar. Plus, skim milk and Greek yogurt give it that creamy texture without adding extra fat and calories. This mushroom soup makes a full meal all alone. However, we recommend serving with crusty bread, or even accompanying our Clean Eating Grilled Cheese!

- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 medium onion, diced small
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 6 cups sliced mushrooms (button mushrooms work best)
- 1/4 cup white balsamic vinegar
- 4 cups vegetable broth
- 2 teaspoons dried thyme
- 1 teaspoons Kosher salt
- 1/2 teaspoons ground black pepper
- 1/4 cup skim milk
- 3 tablespoons corn starch
- 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
- 1 teaspoon dry dill
Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat, add onions, garlic, and mushrooms. Saute until mushrooms are tender. Add the balsamic vinegar and simmer until vinegar has reduced by half.
Transfer to slow cooker and add vegetable broth, thyme, salt, and pepper. Cook on high for 2 to 3 hours or on low for 4 to 6 hours.
During the last 15 minutes of cooking time, whisk together milk, corn starch, and yogurt. Add to the soup and whisk until smooth. Continue to cook for the last 15 minutes to allow the soup to thicken.
Remove about half of the soup and transfer to a food processor or blender. Blend until smooth and return to the remaining un-blended half. Add the dry dill and stir to mix well. Ladle into bowls and serve.
