You’ve been getting your mushroom soup out of cans this whole time? NOOOOO. Please stoppp.
I know it’s way easier and we all are guilty of it too. However, it’s actually pretty unhealthy because of the high salt content and other additives or preservatives that are added into it.

EXTRA INFO / TIPS
- Olive oil is also added to ensure the butter does not burn.
- 2-3 cloves of garlic is preferred so that the taste of the garlic is not too strong.
- Mushrooms will shrink, so adding a little more is totally fine. IN FACT THE MORE, THE BETTER HAHA.
- Flour is added as a thickening agent.
- Fresh parsley is preferred for better taste however if you do not have it, you may use parsley flakes.
- The more cooking cream you add, the thicker the consistency of the mushroom soup is going to be.
