Yum Hey What's for Dinner Mom?: Hungarian Mushroom Soup + Re-Gifters Gift Exchange


Hungarian Mushroom Soup + Re-Gifters Gift Exchange

Again with a vegetarian soup, I know! But it's so good and so easy, I HAD to share this one. We all loved it and practically licked the pot clean. Even our "hater of mushrooms" ate it with gusto, in candlelight, of course. It gets the prestigious trifecta rating in our house. If you try it let me know how you like it.

Also, the gift exchange. Please join. I don't want to exchange a gift with myself because I'll already know what I'm sending myself. And I want this to be a roaring success. And fun. Please? But I'm NOT begging or anything. Details below the very cute pictures of my kids.

Hungarian Mushroom Soup-by Mollie Katzen

2 Tablespoons of butter
2 cups chopped onion
1 1/2 pounds mushrooms, cleaned and sliced
3 teaspoons dried dill weed
1 1/2 teaspoons of salt
2 Tablespoons lemon juice
3 Tablespoons AP flour
2 cups water
1 cup milk
1/2 cup sour cream
dash of pepper

in a dutch oven over medium heat melt the butter
cook the onion in the butter for 5 minutes, stir occasionally
add the mushrooms, dill weed and salt
cover and cook over medium low for 15 minutes
remove the lid and add lemon juice
increase heat to medium and slowly sprinkle in the flour stirring constantly
cook and stir for 5 minutes
add the water slowly and cook for 10 minutes
reduce heat to low and stir in the milk, then whisk in the sour cream
heat through but don't boil
taste and adjust the seasonings
serve right away

I think our local coffee house uses this recipe, it tastes incredibly similar except this doesn't cost 8 dollars for a bowl with a slice of bread. I will definitely be making this again. I served it with biscuits and corn for a quick simple meatless meal.

Peace and Love,

  1. hahaha yeah, it's $8.24, but how can you pass up a handmade pottery bowl filled with hot Hungarian Moosewood goodness with a huge wedge of warm homemade bread and butter, all given to you by a cute and sassy barista?

    Not that I'm making a plug for my place of employment or anything...


  2. 8 dollars for a bowl of soup? Though, how big is the bowl and how much soup is in it? lol.

    Right now my heart is in soup and soup I shall make.
