Mushroom Brie Soup

As an avid mushroom grower and food enthusiast, mushroom brie soup holds a special place in my heart and on my dinner table. The earthy flavor of mushrooms combined with the creamy richness of brie cheese creates a decadent and comforting soup that is perfect for cozy evenings at home or for impressing guests at dinner parties.


  • 1 pound of fresh mushrooms (such as cremini or button mushrooms)
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 4 cups of chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1 cup of heavy cream
  • 6 ounces of Brie cheese, rind removed and cubed
  • 2 tablespoons of butter
  • 2 tablespoons of all-purpose flour
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh thyme for garnish

One of the best things about this recipe is the simplicity of the ingredients. I love heading to my local farmers’ market to pick up the freshest mushrooms and then selecting a ripe, creamy brie from my favorite cheese shop. The quality of the ingredients truly makes a difference in the final dish.


  1. In a large pot, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the chopped onions and sauté until they are soft and translucent.
  2. Add the minced garlic to the pot and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes, stirring constantly to avoid burning the garlic.
  3. Next, add the mushrooms to the pot and cook until they are soft and beginning to release their moisture.
  4. Sprinkle the flour over the mushroom mixture and stir to coat the mushrooms evenly.
  5. Slowly pour in the chicken or vegetable broth, stirring constantly to avoid any lumps from the flour. Bring the mixture to a simmer.
  6. Once the soup is simmering, reduce the heat to low and stir in the heavy cream.
  7. Add the cubed Brie cheese to the soup, stirring until the cheese is melted and fully incorporated into the soup.
  8. Season the soup with salt and pepper to taste.
  9. Serve the soup hot, garnished with a sprinkle of fresh thyme.

When I make this soup, the aroma that fills my kitchen is absolutely heavenly. The savory scent of sautéed onions and mushrooms combined with the creamy notes of brie cheese always makes my mouth water in anticipation of the first spoonful.
