My soup tureen was a wedding gift from dear family friends. My goodness, it is almost an antique. Our wedding seems like it was so long ago. Nevertheless, every time I take this from the cupboard I am reminded of these friends of ours that are now in heaven.
Last evening was the perfect time to make a pot of hot soup. I chose a recipe we both think is delicious! It is Golden Mushroom Soup from the Sandra Lee Semi-homemade cookbook.

I tripled this recipe so that I could freeze some for a later time. I sauteed two 8 oz. containers of fresh sliced baby bella mushrooms with olive oil until they were tender.

In a separate mixing bowl I whipped together the golden mushroom soup, the water, the heavy cream, and the garlic powder(which I substituted for the minced garlic).

This recipe is so good! It only takes a short time to put together and only 5 - 10 minutes of simmering.

And, this is what you get...a bowl of steaming hot mushroom soup, sprinkled with shredded asiago cheese and chopped fresh parsley. Sometimes I serve this with a grilled cheese sandwich which I find to be a good accompaniment.

I have found many of Sandra Lee's recipes work well for me and my time schedules. This golden mushroom soup is one I resort to often. I realize that many people do not like mushrooms and most likely if you are one of them, you probably have already checked out of this blog as soon as you saw the pan of sauteed mushrooms in the picture above. I know...my youngest daughter is one of your kind.:)

Not me Judy; I love mushrooms and I'm right there with you. We just love em'. I've never made fresh mushroom soup and I think I will now. You've made it simple and it looks quite delicious.
Toodles, Debbie

I think the soup looks great! Thanks for sharing the recipe. Your tureen is so pretty. I got one 35 years ago when I got married and just recently got rid of it during one of my crazy purge days!! You make me wish I had it back!

Hi Judy, the tureen is lovely and the soup looks just too good. I have several of Sandra's cookbooks.

Thank you for always leaving the sweetest and kindest comments to me. How gracious you are!

Oh Judy, I MUST HAVE this recipe. I tried to copy it so I could save it but my computer wouldn't cooperate. My hubby would so-o-o-o love this soup. It sounds like something similar we ate while in Germany last Fall.

Can you send the recipe, or can Terry and I come over for some?


Tracy said...

Oh that looks wonderful! It is similar to a soup I'll be posting about soon...our very favorite...creamy chicken soup with wild rice and mushrooms. I'm going to have to try and give this one a try as we are mushroom lovers at my house! = ) Thanks for sharing! (Love that tureen!)

OH this reminds me of the soup tureen that looked like a large cabbage that we got for a wedding gift. The terrible part is that at some point I sent it to charity .. .oh vey ..what was I thinking, someone made it for me. Oh the things that make me shake my head in wonder . .:)
Your soup looks just scrumptious.

This looks yummy! Our family hasn't used golden mushroom soup in decades... now that you reminded me, I'll have to look for it next time I'm grocery shopping.

And what a lovely soup tureen and a lovely way to remember special friends.
