Mom’s Mushroom Soup

Ever since Heather and I got on the paleo bandwagon, my mom has been curiously intrigued.  I have my mom to thank for turning me on to cooking from an early age, and she’s been enjoying our recipes and making suggestions.  This is a take on a soup that she cooked for herself just after Christmas, and as we love mushroom soup as well, decided to give it a try.  It turned out really well, so we wanted to share the love.  We’re finally getting the cold winter weather here in the mid-Atlantic, so warm soups really hit the spot after coming in from work or errands.

Ingredients
3 C sliced baby bella mushrooms
4 C beef broth
1/2 vidalia onion, thinly sliced
3 Tbsp ghee, split 2 Tbsp and 1 Tbsp
1 can full fat organic coconut milk
pinch of pepper

Method
Melt 2 Tbsp of ghee in medium stock pot and then add sliced onions to lightly caramelize.  Simmer on medium approximately 5 minutes, stirring frequently, and then turn to low for an additional 3-5 minutes.

Add sliced mushrooms and coat in ghee/onion mixture.  Add in additional Tbsp of ghee and cook mushrooms for another 4-5 minutes on low.

Add beef broth and bring to a simmer for 5 minutes.

Pour coconut milk while stirring and simmer an additional 2-3 minutes.

Add pepper to the soup, and serve.

And, as always, feel free to join us on Facebook and twitter for all the latest we’ve got in store.  Enjoy!

  3. What kind of coconut milk do you use? I usually get Golden Star and it is entirely too thick in comparison to the coconut milk you use to have soup that looks like that. Golden Star as more of a sour cream consistency.

    Thank you!

  5. Just made this two nights ago and it was SO great! Cannot wait to try this again, even my boyfriend who doesnt really like mushrooms thought it was good and had a large bowl of it.
    I did half bella mushrooms and half shitake mushrooms and I think next time I will use even more shitake, their flavor was extra delicious. Thanks for the recipe
