Hungarian Mushroom Soup Ingredients
- white onion finely chopped
- Hungarian sweet paprika
- white wine
- chicken or vegetable stock
- soy sauce
- sour cream
- dried dill
- Salt and pepper to taste

How to Make Mushroom Soup
- In a large pan, fry the onions in butter until soft, then add the mushrooms and cook for another 2 minutes.
- When the mushrooms start to soften, sprinkle with flour and paprika and mix in well.
- Next, add the white wine and scrape up any bits of flour and paprika stuck to the base of the pan. Then gradually add the stock, milk and soy sauce, and stir continually, until the soup starts to boil and thicken.
- Take the soup off the heat and allow to cool slightly before adding the sour cream, then stir in well. IMPORTANT NOTE: adding the sour cream while still on the heat will cause it to curdle!

Mushroom Soup Recipes FAQs
We recommend Shiitake, Cremini, portobello, or button mushrooms for this easy mushroom soup.
No matter which mushrooms you choose for this recipe, the most important thing is to look for freshness. You want nice firm mushrooms.
I am a huge paprika fan and use it in almost everything. At my house, its a staple almost as necessary as salt and pepper.
Paprika is a ground spice made from a combination of dried peppers, including hot chili peppers, cayenne peppers, poblano peppers, Aleppo peppers, and sweet peppers.
Some paprikas are hot and spicy, and others are sweet, with no heat and a mild flavor.
While I am a huge fan of Spanish and Portuguese paprika in most dishes, Hungarian paprika is preferable for this recipe, but not necessary if you can’t find it. However, Hungarian Paprika adds a bolder and more authentic flavor to the soup.
Freshly made Creamy Mushroom Soup will keep in the fridge in a sealed container for 3 days.
Freeze for up to 3 months and defrost thoroughly before reheating. Reheat in a pan on low on the stove and ensure the soup is piping hot throughout before serving.
We made this last night for a soul warming soup on a winter’s eve. It is so YUMMY, I am sharing the recipe with my family in other cities! Thank you for sharing the recipe!!Trudi

I froze it in one cup portions and defrosted one for supper last night. It was just as delicious as it was when just cooked. I did not add sour cream until ready to eat. Will definitely be making this again.Cecelia

- Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a large pan and fry 1 finely chopped small white onion until soft. Add 1 pound sliced mushrooms or canned mushrooms and stir fry for another 2 minutes.When the mushrooms soften, sprinkle with 3 tablespoons flour and 2 ½ teaspoons paprika. Mix well until fully combined.
- Add ½ cup white wine. Scrape up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan and stir. Once the wine reduces by half, gradually add 1 ¼ cups vegetable stock, 1 cup 2% milk, and 3 tablespoons light soy sauce. Continue to stir until the soup starts to boil and thicken.
- Once the soup boils and thickens, take it off the heat and allow it to cool slightly. Add 3 tablespoons sour cream and stir in well. Add 3 teaspoons dried dill and juice from ½ a lemon. Season to taste with salt and pepper, add extra dollops of sour cream and about 1 ½ tablespoons chopped parsley, and enjoy!
- IMPORTANT NOTE: adding the sour cream while still on the heat will cause it to curdle!
- Hungarian mushroom soup can be frozen. Allow to fully cool before transferring to an airtight container.Freeze for up to 3 months and defrost thoroughly before reheating. Reheat in a pan and ensure the soup is piping hot throughout before serving.
- It is not essential to use Hungarian paprika. Standard paprika will work fine. However, the use of authentic Hungarian paprika, which has a deep red color and sweeter flavor, would undoubtedly produce a richer, sweeter soup.
- Freshly made soup will also keep in the fridge, in a sealed container, for 2 days.

My hubby went crazy over this soup! I cooked 1-1/2 lbs of chuck roast that I cubed and cooked in the Instant Pot with 1-1/2 cups water, a little salt & pepper for 25 minutes on high, slow release for 10 minutes. I used the broth from that in place of the vegetable broth otherwise I followed the recipe. It was tasty. I did think the tablespoon (3 tsp) of dried dill was over powering. He’s already said he wants to make this again. I guess I’ll cut way back on the dill next time (and I love dill). He agreed the dill was kinda strong. Maybe we just have some strong dill weed. He loved (and so did I) the addition of the beef. Had some hot crusty bread with it.
I made this soup the same day I found your recipe and I honestly wish I doubled the batch. It was absolutely scumptious!!! My nephew went crazy over it so much that he went in for 3rds. I got one bowl out of it, but it warmed my heart to see him enjoy it so much (picky eater) that I didn’t mind. Unfortunately, I didn’t have milk, so I substituted with whipping cream and it was luxurious. It might’ve made it a bit rich, but it was sinfully delicious. I will be making this again and again. So easy and so was the clean up!!! Thank you for sharing!!!

That’s incredible, Rhonda! We’re so glad you and your nephew enjoyed it so much! Cream is a great substitute for milk, it must have been deliciously rich. Thank you so much for your comment!
Jackie McAllister says
I made this soup today with the exception of the onion. What a delicious blend of flavors.
I used my immersion blender and loved it.
Em Beitel says
So glad you enjoyed it, Jackie! This is my personal favorite soup! Thank you for your comment.
Dawn R. says
OMG this is soooo good. A new favorite for us. I tripled the recipe because I like to have it in the freezer and my son loves it. I didn’t have some of the ingredients and had to make some substitutions. I didn’t have light soy sauce and only had regular soy sauce. Was concerned the regular soy sauce would be too salty. It was fine. Just went light on the salt at the end of the recipe. Also didn’t have milk and used heavy cream instead. Turned out great. Thank you for the recipe. I could eat this every day.

This is wonderful to hear, Dawn. I am so glad you and your son both enjoy it! Thank you for leaving us a comment!
OMG! This is delicious! Quick and easy with so much flavor. I need to make some bread to dip in this and wipe the bowl clean. Not sure I can wait an entire week to make it again. Thanks for such a great recipe.
