This is a simple soup. Hits the spot on a cold day. It’s rich and filling and delicious.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 12 Baby Bella mushrooms (very thinly sliced)
  • 1 finely sliced shallot
  • 2 tablespoons real butter
  • 1 teaspoon chopped garlic
  • 1 teaspoon spicy sea salt
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon hot paprika
  • 4 cups beef broth
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup cooked rice
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch dissolved in warm water

Sauté shallot and mushrooms in butter. Add remaining ingredients except cornstarch. Bring to a boil and then add dissolved cornstarch. Simmer to thicken. Serve piping hot.


  • To avoid lumps in soup pour the dissolved cornstarch through a wire stainer.
  • Use your favorite rice. I used white rice, but a good wild rice would be tasty.
