  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 pound mixed wild mushrooms, cleaned and sliced
  • 1 shallot, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine
  • 4 cups chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the mushrooms and cook until softened and browned, about 5 minutes.
  • Add the shallot and garlic and cook for 1 minute more.
  • Add the white wine and cook until reduced by half, about 2 minutes.
  • Add the broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 15 minutes, or until the mushrooms are tender.
  • Remove from heat and stir in the cream and parsley. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Puree the soup in a blender or food processor until smooth.
  • Return the soup to the pot and reheat gently.

Serve hot with a garnish of fresh parsley and a crusty bread.

This recipe is easy to follow and produces a delicious and creamy soup that is perfect for serving at Thanksgiving dinner. The wild mushrooms add a rich and earthy flavor that will impress your guests. The soup is also gluten-free and can be easily made vegetarian or vegan by substituting vegetable broth for chicken broth and omitting the cream.


  • For a richer flavor, use a combination of different wild mushrooms, such as cremini, shiitake, and oyster mushrooms.
  • If you can’t find fresh wild mushrooms, you can use dried wild mushrooms instead. Simply rehydrate them in hot water for 15 minutes before using.
  • To make the soup ahead of time, simply puree it and then store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days, or in the freezer for up to 3 months. When ready to serve, reheat the soup gently and stir in the cream and parsley.

So why wait? Make a batch of creamy wild mushroom soup today and enjoy it with your loved ones on Thanksgiving!
