This is my favorite soup during the winters. Having a bowl of soup in cold weather is really comforting. When it comes to the soups, I prefer creamy and smooth soups. While hubby prefers the chunky soup like veg hot and sour soup or veg manchow soup.

Just like all the cream of soups, this recipe calls for roux. Roux is a mixture made by sauteing butter and flour. This works as a thickening agent. This roux is later thinned with milk. As milk simmers, it will start to thicken.

For making this cream of mushroom soup, I have used button mushrooms. You can use use cremini mushrooms or mix of cremini and button mushrooms.

A dash of nutmeg is added at the end. It really brings out the flavors. Instead of that you can try with herbs like thyme or tarragon. Use fresh herbs. If not available then use dried herbs.

For making this I used vegetable stock here. Instead you can use water. If you eat non-vegetarian food then use can use chicken stock as well.
