Beth’s Cream of Mushroom Soup with Crispy Leeks | ENTERTAINING WITH BETH

Learn how to make my homemade Cream of Mushroom Soup Recipe! This is a great fall soup recipe that will please many diets! Swap the butter for oil and omit the cream and it’s a perfect vegan soup for plant-based diets, or keep the butter and ad vegetable broth for a Vegetarian diet. Personally, I like to serve this soup with the butter and chicken broth to make it extra rick and decadent.
But really the choice is yours!

This soup recipe is also great for a make-ahead meal since it can be made a few days ahead of time, and then all you have to do is re-heat and fry the leeks! I hope you enjoy! Happy Fall! xx Beth
