Mushroom-soup lovers, this soup is for you! Russet potatoes make it hearty, and dill and paprika add plenty of flavor. We skip the generous amount of full-fat sour cream and butter typically used in creamy mushroom soups. Serve with a green salad and warm pumpernickel bread.


1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil1 ½ lb mushroom, thinly sliced1 medium onion, diced3 Tbsp all-purpose flour2 Tbsp paprika, preferably Hungarian (see Note)2 Tbsp dried dill4 cup mushroom broth or reduced-sodium beef broth2 cup low-fat milk1 ½ lb russet potato, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch pieces½ cup reduced-fat sour cream¾ tsp salt


1. Heat oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms and onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until most of the liquid evaporates, 10 to 15 minutes.

2. Reduce heat to medium and cook, stirring frequently, until the mushrooms are very soft, about 3 minutes more. Add flour, paprika and dill and cook, stirring, for 15 seconds. Add broth, milk and potatoes; cover and bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to maintain a lively simmer and cook, uncovered, until the potatoes are tender, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in sour cream and salt.

Note: Paprika labeled “Hungarian” is worth seeking out for this soup because it delivers a fuller, richer flavor than regular paprika. Find it at well-stocked supermarkets, specialty-foods stores or online at

To Make Ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days; reheat over low.
