Soup Maker: Peppered Mushroom Soup Recipe – 1.6 Litre

Another soupmaker recipe goodie.

Mushrooms are available here all year round and make fabulous soups.  The taste is completely different to anything you can buy in a tin.

This recipe does make for very thick soup when it cools slightly, so you might want to water it down a bit or use slightly less ingredients if you want a more watery soup.    The colour of mushroom soup isn’t the most appetising, but the taste more than makes up for that.

It might be too peppery for some, so if you don’t like the strong taste of peppercorns, add less ground peppercorns to give your soup a milder kick.

  1. What a wonderful soup. Made this yesterday, and you really get a lovely peppery mushroom. I live alone, so a whole batch lasts me three or four days, and I’m so excited to have it again. It’s just as good reheated! Looking forward to trying your other recipes!

  2. At the risk of sounding stupid, will just black peppercorns do, or does it need the mix?

    1. Black peppercorns will be fine, just without the aniseedy taste, but still peppery.

      1. Thank you! My OH will love this!

        1. You’re welcome. It seems to be a love it or hate it soup, due to the texture. Good luck.

  3. Loving this soup – used the recipe loads – chestnut mushrooms give it a nice kick I’m I’m England but born in bonnie Scotland. Also I make lovely sweet potato & butternut squash – adding a mixed veggie pack…..lovely….very moreish with crusty bread….A definite winner in my house and a good way of getting some veggie into my 14 yr old fussy daughter lol

    1. Glad you enjoyed it Elleigh. Mushroom soup is a hit or a miss for many people.. I love it.

  4. can this be frozen?

    1. I’ve never really tried freezing mushroom soup, so I’m not quite sure how it would work. Definitely not with cream in it though. I suspect it would be slightly unappetizing after being frozen.

  5. Used some white wine in the stock and finished it with low fat creme fra ice it was amazing for my second attempt at making soup . Thank you so much

    1. Glad you enjoyed it. Soup is just so easy to do in a maker 🙂

  6. A really, really good soup recipe despite me adding half a tablespoon of ground pepper. Good job we love it hot! Had it with a mushroom and ham ciabatta fresh out the oven. My wife was particularly proud of me..
