Start the week with a bowl of this Vegan Cream of Mushroom Soup.💛🌱
It’s so creamy, velvety and luxurious, with lots of mushroom chunks! Plus, it’s a vegan, 1-pot recipe, and so easy to make.
Growing up, my favourite lunch was Campbells Mushroom Soup (yeah, the canned one), and I used to make my mum scoop all the mushroom chunks into my bowl! I thought it was bliss. So, I’ve made sure that this homemade vegan version is mushroom loaded!!
It’s exactly what you’d hope for in a creamy mushroom soup recipe (and 1000x better than the canned kind! haha). We absolutely love it!
- In a small bowl and the cashews and pour in boiling water to soak. Set aside.
- In a large pot, add the olive oil, onion and garlic and bring to medium-high heat. Cook, stirring often until the onions have softened, about 7 minutes).
- Add the mushrooms and cook for 5 to 7 minutes, then sprinkle in the flour and mix together. Cook for 2 minutes, then pour in 1/2 cup of the vegetable broth and bring to a low simmer. Toss in the thyme, bay leaves, salt and pepper. Simmer the soup for 5 minutes, then pour in the remaining broth. Cover and let the soup simmer for 10 to 15 minutes.
- Meanwhile, make the cashew cream: strain the cashews and add to a high speed blender with the miso and 3/4 cup of fresh water. Blend until smooth and creamy.
- Turn the heat to low and pour the cashew cream into the soup. Stir everything to combine. Scoop out the thyme and bay leaf and serve.
