As of the last month or so, I’ve been going thru endless soup recipes. As a new mom and soup enthusiast, I’m always looking for the next best concept as soups are just so easy, great for the week, veggie packed, and my favorite reason..they are a great way to salvage produce on the way out.
This past week I decided to revisit some of my first recipes and knew I had to do this vegan Cream of Mushroom Soup!
While this was one of the first recipes ever created for EDS back in 2014, it absolutely still holds up today and remains to be one of my top favorite soups, which says a lot! (created over 20) The only bad thing about this recipe, my husband isn’t a fan of mushrooms so I don’t get to make it often. I could honestly eat it every day lol.
So how do you circumvent animal products in a recipe that’s typically heavy cream and chicken broth? You pack on the flavor, use coconut milk and cashews to add body, and boom, you have a soup that tastes just as good as the real deal!!
What’s fab about this soup, is everything! It’s quick, easy, affordable, features minimal staple ingredients, packed with healthy fats, mushrooms have tons of beneficial properties, has rich coconut milk, has texture from the mushrooms, protein from the cashews, can easily be made in bulk, perf for the cold weather, can be thickened to create a pizza or pasta sauce, and is hands down one of my favorite soups!
If you love effortless vegan soups or all things mushrooms, you’re going to love my staple vegan Cream of Mushroom Soup with cashew cream!
