Mushroom soup – Healthy “forest meat” soup

Mushrooms or “forest meat” are a fantastic gift of nature. Champignons, but also other types of edible mushrooms, are a real treasure trove of medicinal ingredients. Fresh mushrooms contain about 2% protein, and dried as much as 20%. Mushrooms grown in the light are rich in vitamin D. They are also a good source of potassium, phosphorus and iron.

I think these are enough reasons to include them in our daily diet. Here is a wonderful recipe for mushroom soup. You can use more types of mushrooms, they will be even tastier.


2 tablespoons oil or butter

1 medium onion, chopped

1 stalk of celery

300 g various fresh mushrooms (champignon, white and dark, shiitake)

5 cups water

Fresh parsley

Salt and lots of freshly ground pepper

Sour cream


  • Fry the chopped onion in oil or butter, then add the celery.
  • Add the chopped or whole mushrooms (remove the stalks from the shiitake mushrooms, they are very tough) and sautΓ© them for about five minutes on a medium heat.
  • Add salt and pepper to the mushrooms.
  • Finally add five cups of water, cook until it boils, then reduce the heat and cook the broth for about 20 minutes.
  • Add the parsley at the end.
  • Serve with sour cream.
