Cream of mushroom soup is a classic comfort food that is perfect for a cold day or as a simple, yet delicious starter for a dinner party.
Stir in the heavy cream and season the soup with salt and pepper to taste. If the soup is too thick, you can add a little more broth or water to thin it out.
Serve the soup hot, garnished with chopped fresh parsley if desired. You can also add a sprinkle of paprika or a swirl of sour cream for added flavor and texture.
