Frequently Asked Questions

How to Thicken Low Carb Mushrooms Soup Recipe?

Although the keto soup is really creamy, if you want to make it thicker, you can use low-carb ingredients like Xanthan Gum or Glucomannan Powder.

What Type Of Mushrooms Should I Use?

For this recipe, I like to use fresh cremini or brown mushrooms. But you can also make a delicious soup using portobello mushrooms or a mix of your favorites.

Can I Make This Soup In An Instant Pot?

Sure, you can make this soup using an instant pot if you are not a fan of recipes requiring too much cooking time. Add all the ingredients (except the heavy cream) to an instant pot and cook on high pressure for 10 minutes. Then release the pressure, add the heavy cream and blend the soup with an immersion blender until creamy.

How To Clean Mushrooms?

The best way to clean mushrooms is to wash them in cold water. Some people do this with a special toothbrush, but I use my hands or a knife to keep it simple. Because mushrooms absorb water, washing them right away before cooking is crucial to prevent them from becoming soggy.
