Why prefer homemade rather than canned?

To be honest, anything prepared at home is better than processed food.

Every ingredient that you take is fresh and to your knowledge so, it’s a win-win game healthier and even tastier.

Which kind of mushrooms should I opt for?

You can choose absolutely any kind of mushroom as per your preferences.

But to get an amazingly appetizing and remembering flavor I would suggest you opt for cremini, shiitake, or porcini mushrooms.

When mixed with cream, they truly stick out

Why make it an Instant pot rather than the stove?

Making it at home and in the Instant Pot is definitely useful, better, and furthermore, an efficient way to save time.

As in contrast to the traditional stovetop strategy, you need less time to cook it under pressure.


What to serve it with?

Mushroom soup is itself an amazing and complete dish, or it can be used as an appetizer or a side dish.

To have an unforgettable experience, try the soup with:

Instant Pot Brats

Instant Pot Shrimp Boil

Instant Pot Brussels Sprouts with Bacon

For how long can I freeze this in the fridge?

This Instant Pot Mushroom Soup can be handily frozen.

Just permit it to cool totally. At that point, move the dish to an airtight sealed container or substantial cooler packs, and freeze for as long as 3 months.

Allow it to defrost for the time being preceding serving.

Likewise, you can reheat it in the microwave or use a stove to do so for a couple of moments.

To keep the soup from souring, mix well while reheating it.

  1. when do you add the sherry? and shouldn’t this have cream or half & half? I feel like this recipe isn’t complete

    1. You can add the sherry with the chicken broth, I will update the recipe. And this recipe doesn’t need cream but you can definitely add 1/2 cup cream at the end if you like a creamier soup.
