Creamy Mushroom Soup (Vegan, GF)

Creamy Mushroom Soup (Vegan, GF)

Creamy Mushroom Soup (Vegan) tastes like pure comfort food but is loaded with veggies and has no cream or half-and-half! It’s as easy as cooking onion, mushrooms, and potatoes in broth and blending until smooth with nondairy milk. The chanterelle mushrooms add both elegance and a peppery, earthy flavor.

It’s as easy as cooking onion, mushrooms, and potatoes in broth and blending until smooth with nondairy milk. The chanterelle mushrooms add both elegance and a peppery, earthy flavor.

How (your directions):

Heat avocado oil in a large saucepan over medium high heat. 

Add the diced yellow onion and a pinch of salt and sauté for 3-4 minutes, stirring frequently.

Add diced mushrooms, salt, and dried thyme.  Sauté, stirring frequently, until liquid from mushrooms evaporates, about 5 minutes.

Add white wine and stir for 30 seconds.

Add potatoes and vegetable broth.  Bring to a boil, then cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer for 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, heat vegan butter in a small pan over medium heat.  Add chanterelle mushrooms and sauté for 2-3 minutes.  Season with a pinch of salt.   

Turn the stove heat off and stir in nondairy milk into the soup.  Using an immersion blender or high-speed blender, blend the mushroom soup until smooth.

Serve soup with freshly ground pepper and a spoonful of chanterelle mushrooms on top.  Drizzle with good olive oil and enjoy hot!

Why (the science):  Fiber-rich potatoes and nondairy milk add a plant-based creaminess to the soup without the need for heavy cream or half-and-half!  Mushrooms are prebiotics, which feed the healthy bacteria in your gut to help reduce inflammation and boost your immune system.
