Variations and tips

The most important part of the mushroom soup is well, the mushroom.

Button mushrooms would be the easiest to find, but there are plenty of dried, sliced mushrooms such as shiitake. Fresh oyster mushrooms would work as well, but don't forget to make it into strips.

If you are a vegan, you can try milk and cheese alternatives as you like.

Mushroom powders would work great too, such as Lion's Mane mushroom powder. Redditors say they can taste like crab or lobster. As a bonus, they are good for the brain and can enhance your productivity. If you use mushroom powders, you can skip the boiling process.

You can also make this recipe on the stovetop. You can even mix all the ingredients at once if you are in a hurry, and heat until the right consistency is achieved.
