Did you ever think of making your own Filipino Style Cream of Mushroom soup from scratch, because one of the members of the family can’t eat ready made or instant soup. I am sharing this recipe because I needed to cook this from scratch and without msg. It turned out way better than the store bought mushroom soup.
If you have a blender or a hand blender, the traditional way, is to blend it using a blender to make it really smooth and without traces of bits and pieces of mushrooms and other ingredients. This is how a cream of mushroom soup is serve in restaurants. I hope you enjoy this recipe. Happy cooking!
