Mushroom Cheeseburger Soup {AIP, Paleo, Whole30} – updated March 2017

How was your Thanksgiving? Did you cook full AIP, or just pick at what you could from a standard table. I had 9 people at my house for a fully AIP dinner last weekend and then yesterday was at a friend’s house for a Thanksgiving potluck with 77 people. There were a few things I could eat, but it was about the people more than the food.

I know this is TURKEY WEEK, but sometimes after holidays I want something a little different as a break. The Thanksgiving leftovers are in the freezer and sometime next week I’ll have another feast.

Since soup is my favorite, it only makes sense to make soup…and not turkey soup. It’s time for mushroom cheeseburger soup.

This soup reminds me of a burger that I used to get at a famous fast food chain with grilled mushrooms and cheese. It’s creamy (without having any cream), cheesy (without having any cheese) and full of burger and mushroom flavors. It’s a great one pot meal deal and would fill up even your hungriest family members. Plus, it doesn’t take long to cook, so it would be great on a busy weeknight and leftovers are great too!

{UPDATED NOTE: This recipe was originally posted in November, but it’s a perfect warm and comforting soup to see you through the whole winter. It kind of reminds me of chili and it’s totally fiance´ approved. If you’ve got hungry men or boys in your home, this is the soup to make. HINT…double or triple the ingredients and freeze some for later. Trust me, you’re going to want it.}
