Since making this Creamy Tomato Soup and Creamy Corn Chowder, I’ve been thinking of other creamy soups I can make, and decided a healthy Vegan Cream of Mushroom Soup was a must-make!

I experimented with various ways to make the soup creamy, including adding cooked white rice before blending. Although the texture was thick and velvety, it was also a little gloopy and cloying, so, unsurprisingly, that version didn’t make the cut.

So, I returned to my trusty old friends, white beans, which when added to the soup and blended up create a seriously rich and creamy texture. They also provide a good source of protein and fibre, and are so much less expensive than cashews.

I also added unsweetened almond milk, but if you’d like to make the soup nut-free, this can be substituted with unsweetened oat milk.

You can use any type of fresh mushrooms you like – chestnut mushrooms, button mushrooms, shiitake mushrooms, maitake mushrooms, portobello mushrooms, oyster mushrooms, or any other type of mushrooms all work! 

I also like to add some dried porcini mushrooms for extra flavour, but if you can’t get hold of these they can be left out.

This soup is so easy to make and really convenient for batch-cooking as it keeps covered in the fridge for up to a few days, freezes well and reheats beautifully – enjoy!
