Smoked Cream of Mushroom Soup

Smoked Cream of Mushroom Soup

There is nothing more down-home comforting than a warm bowl of creamy soup on a chilly evening. Even better if that soup is full of rich, smoky mushrooms and served with a hearty piece of crusty bread. Whip this dish up on a weeknight or serve at a potluck. Either way, your crowd will be happy!


Smoked Cream of Mushroom Soup


Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 1 hr 15 minutes
Serves: 4-6
Recommended Pellets: Hickory, Oak, Alder

1-1/2 pounds small white button mushrooms
2 large Portobello mushrooms
1 small to medium onion, peeled and cut into 6 wedges
3 1/2-inch slices country-style bread, crusts removed
6 cups chicken, beef, or vegetable broth
3 cloves garlic, coarsely chopped
2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves, or 1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 cup heavy cream
1 to 2 tablespoons sherry (optional)
Chopped fresh parsley or chives, for serving

Clean the button mushrooms and the Portobellos and remove the stems. Coarsely chop the mushrooms and transfer to a rimmed baking sheet lined with heavy duty foil. Add the onion wedges. When ready to cook, start the Traeger grill on Smoke with the lid open until the fire is established (4 to 5 minutes). Arrange the baking sheet on the grill grate. Put the bread slices next to it (directly on the grill grate). Smoke the vegetables and the bread for 30 minutes.

Remove the bread from the grill, tear into pieces, and reserve. Increase the temperature to High (400 to 450 degrees F) and roast the mushrooms until they are tender and releasing their juices, stirring occasionally, about 20 minutes.

In the meantime, bring the chicken stock to a boil in a medium pot on the stovetop and add the garlic and thyme.

Reduce the heat to simmer, then add the mushrooms and their juices, and the onion wedges, bread, and Worcestershire sauce to the stock. Let the soup simmer for 15 minutes. Add the cream.

Working in batches, carefully puree the soup in a blender jar. (Do not fill the jar more than half full, and always hold the lid down with a towel between the lid and your hand.) Pour the pureed soup in a clean pot and add the sherry, if desired. Reheat before serving. Garnish with chopped parsley or chives.
