Hungarian Mushroom Soup Recipe – Meatless Monday

Hungarian Mushroom Soup is the perfect weeknight dinner recipe or Meatless Monday recipe. Completely vegetarian but so hearty, filling, and budget friendly. 

I absolutely love cooking with mushrooms. They add such a great flavor and they give dishes such a hearty feel and flavor. We’ve been using a lot of mushrooms in our meatless monday recipes.

I made this Hungarian Mushroom Soup last week after finding it on Pinterest. The photos are what sold me at first. It’s so true that we eat with our eyes! If a food looks amazing, I’m totally going to want it.

Not only does this soup look amazing, but it is so good! It has such a smokey flavor from the paprika and the mushrooms really give it a meaty taste but it’s completely vegetarian.

I paired this with a really big chopped vegetable salad for Meatless Monday and was so full afterwards. The best part was that the leftovers the next day were just as tasty, if not better! I love any dish that can be saved for the next day. Team leftovers all the way!

Budget-wise, this soup is awesome! Inexpensive to make but an enjoyable meal means I’ll be adding this to our rotation, especially during the winter.

The original recipe called for sour cream, both in the soup and to garnish. However, I substituted greek yogurt and it came out amazing. I would have used sour cream if I had any in the fridge but I didn’t. So, greek yogurt it was.
