Russian Mushroom and Potato Soup
Submitted By: DTERESA
I make this soup every Halloween and it's the "signal" to the family that the cool weather has arrived. I've been making it for 15 years now and out of all the soups I make, it is still everyone's favorite. Enjoy!


  • Prep Time: 20 Minutes
  • Cook Time: 40 Minutes
  • Ready In: 1 Hour
  • Yields: 12 servings
INGREDIENTS
  • 5 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 2 leeks, chopped
  • 2 large carrots, sliced
  • 6 cups chicken broth
  • 2 teaspoons dried dill weed
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 pounds potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 1 pound fresh mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 cup half-and-half
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour

DIRECTIONS
  1. Melt 3 tablespoons butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Mix in leeks and carrots, and cook 5 minutes. Pour in broth. Season with dill, salt, pepper, and bay leaf. Mix in potatoes, cover, and cook 20 minutes, or until potatoes are tender but firm. Remove and discard the bay leaf.
