This quick and easy Paleo Mushroom Soup recipe is made with only 5 ingredients. All you need to make it is mushrooms, onion, chicken stock, olive oil, and salt.
I absolutely love serving Paleo Mushroom Soup at our parties in little shot glasses as a healthy appetizer. It’s an especially fun dish for when we have people over to watch the Oscars. As you can tell, I find any event a fantastic excuse for to have people over and cook healthy gluten-free food. And since I make the easiest recipes you’ll ever find, you can enjoy entertaining too without making a big fuss about it!
When I prepare this healthy mushroom soup, I like to serve it with the Salmon Dill Burgers from The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook . Instead of serving them as burgers, I make them into little balls and serve them with toothpicks. For dessert, I offer our guests the Nut-Free Brownies from Paleo Cooking from Elana’s Pantry, with a scoop of the Nut-Free Peanut Butter Ice Cream from that same book!

Just add salt in at the end?
Lisa, thanks so much I’ve updated the instructions :-)
Can I premake these soups and freeze for later consumption?
Natalie, feel free to experiment with that :-)
Loved it! Couldn’t find fresh shii-takes, so used dried ones and two thirds white mushrooms. Thank you!
Arianne, thanks for letting me know you loved this soup!

This looks yummy. I just learn in my nutrition school this week that mushrooms are a powerful food fighting against cancer. I am trying this one. Yum!
Sounds good, think I’ll try it. But I like parts of the mushroom in my soup so think I’ll keep pureeing a cup at a time until I achieve the proper thickness.
