What is vegan mushroom soup?

Vegan mushroom soup, also known as vegan cream of mushroom soup, is a vegan-friendly version of the classic rich and hearty dish. It’s perfect for those who want to enjoy the taste without worrying about animal products or dairy. Vegans especially will love this Hungarian recipe that can be made in just 20 minutes with ingredients that are easy to find at any grocery store!

Is the vegan mushroom soup healthy?

Because vegan mushroom soup is vegan and gluten-free, yes, it is healthy! This vegan recipe contains no meat, fish, eggs, dairy products, or butter, so it’s great for people on restricted diets. 

Mushrooms aren’t just tasty; they are also packed with the good stuff. You can enjoy that satisfying umami flavor, and your body will also thank you for it. These umami morsels provide an earthy flavor and plenty of protein and nutrients like riboflavin (vitamin B2), copper, potassium, and selenium, which are essential for heart health and muscle and nerve function. Those with increased blood sugar can benefit from mushrooms as well, for they’re high in fiber. They’re a source of selenium, vitamin C, and choline as well. Lastly, mushrooms are considered the highest dietary source of two important antioxidants, ergothioneine and glutathione, which help combat neurodegenerative disease. 

Vegan Mushroom Soup

Types of Mushroom

Typically, white button or cremini mushrooms are used for this recipe. You can also mix in some portobello, shiitake, maitake, or oyster mushrooms for more depth of flavor.

Cooking the Vegan Mushroom Soup

Although it’s nice to appreciate the gamey meat texture of the mushroom while eating the soup, we recommend blending some mushroom along with the stock and the milk for a silky broth. If the mushroom is present both in the broth and the components of the soup, the sweet and earthy umami of the dish will come out.

Season the soup with thyme along with paprika to incorporate minty floral hints. To even intensify the flavors, drizzle some white wine while sauteing the mushrooms. For more crunch, top the soup with cashews. All these are mere suggestions and optional, so it’s your discretion on what you want to use and not.

Serving Suggestions

Try pairing the vegan mushroom soup with a slice of artisan or naan bread. Dip the bread on the soup, and it will soak up the juices giving you an incredible bite. Stir in some brown rice, quinoa, or farro to make a heavier meal. Alternatively, serve the soup with some salad to add some crunch and freshness to your dinner.

Meal Planning Steps

  1. Store the vegan mushroom soup in the fridge for up to 3 days.
  2. For an anti-inflammatory diet: make a huge batch, portion it into different containers, and put it in the freezer for up to 3 months.
