50 g of dried mushrooms
2 carrots
1 parsley root
1/4 of a celery root
bay leaf
all spice
1/4 cup of heavy whipping cream
250 g of lazanki (pasta)

Rinse the dried mushrooms very well to get rid of any dirt and sand. Place them in a bowl and cover with around 3 cups of boiling water. Let it soak for minimum 2 hours. Transfer the a medium pot, add another cup of boiled water and cook on medium low for an hour.
In the same time wash and peal off all the vegetables and place them in another pot. Add bay leaf, all spice, peppercorns and salt. Cover with around 6 cups of water and cook on medium low heat for around an hour.
When the mushrooms are ready and soft strain them, reserving the liquid. Let them cool a little bit and then cut them into small pieces.
When the vegetables are ready strain them reserving the stock.
Into a larger pot add the mushroom stock, vegetable stock and the chopped mushrooms. Check for seasoning and cook on low for additional 20 min.
Add few tbs of the soup to the cream, stir and slowly add to the soup constantly mixing. Give it another 5 min and it is ready.
Serve it with lazanki ( or bow tie pasta) and freshly chopped parsley.


  1. I’m making this soup for an xmas party the way my mom always did, only difference with sour cream, and your video was very helpful and instructional, lots of strange stuff out there on the internet if you google zupa grzybowa recipes that have fresh mushrooms and some even lemon juice (?!? how it doesnt curdle the cream?) so very useful traditional style preparation reminders for home style mushroom soup when I cannot ask anymore! Thanks!

  2. I’m sad I didn’t find your channel before Christmas. With my Nana getting older, she’s unable to pass on a lot of the recipes her family had, and just watching this makes me miss her cooking something terrible. Thank you for passing this on to those of us unfortunate enough not to have this knowledge.
