There’s something undeniably comforting about a flavorful, cozy creamy soup recipe.

If it’s everyday, family get-togethers, holidays, parties, or potlucks, there’s just something about the rich and velvety texture of a creamy soup that makes us feel all warm and cozy inside. They’re the perfect one-pot dish that only needs a hunk of bread and butter for a complete meal. We love creamy soups because they are quick and simple to make, and budget-friendly.

Can You Freeze Creamy Soup?

It is possible to freeze creamy soups, but the texture might change a little bit after freezing and the milk or cream might separate. Once thawed, remember to stir the soup well, and add some fresh ingredients. Creamy soups will keep in the freezer for up to 1 month.

How to Store Leftover Soup

Keep leftover soups covered in the refrigerator for between 3 and 5 days.

Thaw frozen soups in the refrigerator overnight before reheating them on the stovetop or microwave. Frozen soups can be thawed on slow heat in the crockpot if desired, too.

What’s a delicious soup without a thick hunk of garlic bread, some cheesy breadsticks, or a few fluffy dinner rolls? Creamy soups also need tangy side salads that complement them! How about a crispy cucumber relish salad, a leafy green salad with a bright vinaigrette, or a colorful Greek salad.

Total Time 55 minutes
Servings 6 servings
Author I Don’t Have Time For That


Dutch Oven


  • ¼ cup butter unsalted
  • 2 medium onions chopped
  • 1 pound cremini or white mushrooms sliced
  • 2 teaspoon dried dill weed or 1 teaspoon fresh
  • 1 tablespoon Hungarian paprika
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup light cream or half and half
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • ¼ cup fresh parsley chopped
  • ½ cup sour cream


  • Cook the onions in butter in a large pot over medium heat until tender, about 5 minutes. Add mushrooms and cook until tender.
  • Add dill, paprika, soy sauce and broth. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer 15 minutes covered.
  • While the soup is simmering, whisk milk and flour until smooth. Whisk into the soup and simmer an additional 15 minutes.
  • Remove from the heat and stir in lemon juice, parsley and sour cream. Season with salt & pepper to taste and serve.


To make this faster, start the onions and while the onions are cooking, slice the mushrooms.
While the mushrooms are cooking, measure the rest of the ingredients.
If using fresh dill, stir it in along with the sour cream.
