A Creamy Vegan Mushroom Soup that is savory, thick, rich, hearty, easy to make, and delicious. It’s perfect by itself as a soup; great for serving over rice; or using in any recipe that requires Cream of Mushroom Soup.
Cream of Mushroom Soup has always been necessary for Fall and holiday cooking. But, what’s not necessary is that can of crap pretending to be cream of mushroom soup. That ain’t nothin’ but fat-filled sodium slime. Your body and your casseroles deserve better.
So, love yourself. Love your casseroles. And, let’s make this Creamy Vegan Mushroom Soup together.
Creamy Vegan Mushroom Soup
Cream of Mushroom Soup is used in so many recipes. My mother would put it on chicken or pork chops, and it was in almost every casserole dish. But, funny thing – we never had it as just “soup.” Go figure.
I’m not complaining and I don’t feel like my childhood was wrecked because of it. I thought that stuff looked nasty long before I cared about my health. Khaki colored goo oozing out of a red and white can? Nah, I’m good.
But, let’s be honest. It did make some damn fine recipes.
Now, things are a little different. My dietary lifestyle has changed, but not my love for delicious comfort foods. I simply make them in a way that won’t kill you. Because contrary to popular belief, comfort food doesn’t have to mean unhealthy. And, healthy food doesn’t have to suck.
So, if you have 20-minutes and are looking for something hearty and warm on a cold day. This Creamy Vegan Mushroom Soup has got your back. It’s also filling, rich in nutrients, and delicious.
Or maybe you’ve been eye-balling that green bean casserole recipe in Southern Living. But, you prefer to pursue a life that’s free of high cholesterol and diabetes. This Creamy Vegan Mushroom Soup will bring your dream for delicious, healthy comfort food to life.
Health Benefits Of Mushrooms
Look, I could go on and on about how delicious this soup is. But, let’s not forget the health benefits.
Mushrooms are high in free-radical-fighting antioxidants, just like carrots and tomatoes. And, they also contain Selenium – a mineral not present in most fruits and vegetables. This helps liver enzyme function which helps to detoxify some cancer-causing compounds in the body. Additionally, selenium prevents inflammation and also decreases tumor growth rates. Bonus!
So, if you don’t like mushrooms it’s time you learned to love’em.
