Hearty & delicious. Can be served chunky style or as a creamy bisque.
This will come together quickly but you do have time between steps to prep the next group of ingredients. Be sure to hold back with a cup of mushrooms. They’ll be used for the awesome garnish.

  • Step 1

    Melt 2 tablespoons of butter in a 4-to 5-quart pot or dutch oven over medium heat. Add the onions and sauté for 5 minutes. Add all but 1-cup of the mushrooms and sauté for 5 more minutes. Stir in the dill, paprika, soy sauce, and broth. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 15 minutes.

  • Step 2

    Meanwhile, melt 3 tablespoons of butter in a small saucepan over low-medium heat. Add the flour and whisk continuously until mixture is smooth and golden in color. Add a small amount (about 1 cup) of the simmered broth to the roux, a little bit at a time while continuously whisking.

  • Step 3

    Pour the milk into the soup and stir well to blend. Add the thickened roux, stirring continuously until fully incorporated. Cover and simmer for 15 more minutes, stirring occasionally.

  • Step 4

    Meanwhile, sauté the cup of reserved mushrooms in the remaining tablespoon of butter until they are cooked through with crispy edges. If you like, season them with a bit of salt & pepper. Set aside to use as a garnish.

  • Step 5

    Finally, stir in the salt, ground black pepper, lemon juice, parsley, and sour cream. Mix well and allow to heat through over low heat, about 3 to 5 minutes. Do not boil. Serve immediately topped with croutons, sautéed mushrooms, and fresh chopped parsley.

  • Step 6

    As illustrated, this is truly a very hearty soup. Loaded with flavor and chunks of mushrooms in every bite. If you prefer, you can...

    1. Chop your mushrooms into small pieces …giving the final dish a completely different texture.
    2. Or before adding the final ingredients, grab that immersion blender and create a smooth creamy mushroom bisque.

    No matter what method you choose, your soup will be flavorful and delicious.
