Hungarian Mushroom Soup

Crisp, cool fall weather has finally arrived here at our cabin! Perfect for long walks in our brilliantly colored woods and a little foraging along the way. Here’s a tasty tried-and-true recipe —hearty and filling with a little heat for good measure!

Ingredients for 4 servings:

  • 2 cups chopped onion
  • 4 Tablespoons butter
  • 1lb fresh mushrooms, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons dried dill weed
  • 1 Tablespoon tamari
  • 1 teaspoon hot Hungarian paprika
    (more or less, to taste. Sweet paprika would work too if you don’t like spicy foods.)
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • fresh ground black pepper
  • freshly chopped parsley
  • sour cream


  1. In a large stockpot, sauté the onions in the butter  with a light sprinkle of salt until translucent.
  2. Add mushrooms, dill, tamari, paprika and stock. Stir, cover and simmer for 15 minutes.
  3. Add cream, and cook, stirring frequently on very low heat for 10 minutes.
  4. Remove from heat. Add sour cream, salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Top with a sprinkle of parsley and serve. Enjoy!
