Why We Love This Vegan Mushroom Soup

It’s hard to find – make that almost impossible – to find a good store-bought vegan mushroom soup. That’s OK, you don’t need store-bought anymore. This soup is:

Simple to make

Quick, with a cooking time of around 30-minutes

So silky and creamy!

Gluten-free adaptable

Made with a hint of miso paste adding umami and depth

Full of warm, earthy mushroom-y goodness.

What You’ll Need

Mushroom soup ingredients on a wooden table.

Mushrooms: Use a variety of mushrooms. I’ve used Cremini and Swiss Browns here but you could use Portobellos, Oyster, Shitake or wild mushrooms.

Flour: Flour thickens this vegan mushroom soup. I’ve used all-purpose unbleached flour here but gluten-free flour will work too.

White wine: Wine adds another layer of flavour but it is completely optional. If you do add it, use a nice dry white like a chardonnay. Also, check that your wine is vegan. Some wines are processed with milk protein, gelatine or fish bladder protein (isinglass). So weird.

Miso paste: Adding miso paste gives the soup more depth of flavour. If you don’t have miso paste, a spoon or two of soy or tamari sauce will do the trick.

Coconut milk: I know, it’s a curveball. I can usually detect coconut flavour in most things, but in this recipe I’ve kept it to half a cup. It’s enough to add creaminess without adding coconut flavour. You could add another dairy-free milk – it won’t be quite as creamy but it will do in a pinch.

How to Make Vegan Cream of Mushroom Soup

You’ll find full instructions and measurements in the recipe card at the bottom of the post.

Step 1: Melt the butter in a heavy-bottomed soup pot or dutch oven and add the onions. Sauté for 3-4 minutes before adding the garlic and cooking for another 2 minutes.

Step 2: Add the mushrooms, thyme and salt and cook for at least 10-minutes until all the liquid from the mushrooms has cooked off. Don’t rush this step!

Step 3: Add the white wine, turn up the heat and cook the liquid off completely.

Step 4: Turn down the heat and sprinkle the mushrooms with the flour. Continue cooking for 2 minutes to toast the flour.

Step 5: Stir in the stock a cup at a time and add the miso paste.

Step 6: Add the coconut milk and whisk while the soup thickens. Once the soup is thick and creamy, you’re ready to serve. Season with salt and pepper.

Recipe Tips

Tip #1. Whatever you do, take the time to cook off all the liquid from the mushrooms. This may take 10-12 minutes but it is so worth it for all the deep earthy flavours you’ll create.

If your pot isn’t big enough, divide the mushrooms in to 2 pans, cook them off, and return them to the original pot to continue the recipe.

Tip #3. To ensure your soup thickens well and emulsifies, add the stock a cup at a time, stirring as you go.

Serving Suggestions

While this soup is full-bodied enough to serve on it’s own, a little something on the side never hurt anybody.

Bread: Scoop up rivers of thick mushroom soup before they hit your chin with toasted baguette rounds. Or try my soft pretzel buns or olive and rosemary spelt loaf.

Salad: You can’t go wrong with a simple green salad.

Cooked lentils: A few spoons of cooked French lentils in the middle of your bowl will add bulk and protein to your meal. Lentils are mushrooms are made for each other.
