Cream of Mushroom Soup Vegan

Since the kitchen has decided to not like my presence much, I decided to open up the blog to some guest posts and introduce you to some amazing friends and bloggers. All special and awesome!

Starting off the first Wednesday Guest post with Somer.
Where should I begin.. Somer has been busy being her super woman self.. being featured on Forks over Knives(testimonial), co-hosting VVP, being an amazing mom, whipping up delicious, healthy and easy vegan fare, a Kick ass blogger, and a very sweet and beautiful person. I found her blog via Kristy and have been hooked since.:) 

I mean look at the ridiculous Macadamia Nut Brie en Croute(pictured below.. I had to feature that picture Somer), and these Black bean burgers with the prettiest pretzel buns and more and more.



Give it up for Somer at Vedget Out! 
You can also find her on Facebook and Pinterest. Drop by and say hi:)..

I'd like to think if I was able to go to Richa's house and bring her some lunch, that I'd bring her a big bowl of this soup. Feel better soon girl.



Cream of Mushroom Soup
Allergy Information: Dairy, egg, corn, soy, gluten, oil free. 

Ingredients:

1 diced onion
3 cloves minced garlic
1 lb sliced mushrooms
6 cups veggie broth
1/2 Cup dry sherry (optional)
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
2 Tablespoons nutritional yeast
1 Cup raw cashews (soak for a few hours if you don't have a power blender)
salt and pepper to taste

Method:
Saute the onions and garlic in a bit of veggie broth.
Add the mushrooms once the onions are transparent. Saute until the mushrooms are reduced in size.
Add veggie broth, herbs and sherry. Reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes.
Remove 2 cups of the hot soup. Blend the soup in a blender with the cashews and nutritional yeast til completely creamy.
Return to pot, season with salt and pepper to taste.
Heat for five more minutes until slightly thickened.

Note: On days that I'm rushed, I've been known to just throw all the ingredients in a slow cooker and turn it on low for the day.

Thank you for the guest post Somer!

This soup is being shared at Allergy Free Wednesdays, Rickis wellness weekend

    1. You could try silken tofu and increase the nutritional yeast a bit, or try soy creamer.... :)

  10. Somer is the best! She has such a big heart and generous spirit. Plus, I just love seeing what's coming up in her kitchen. This cream of mushroom soup sounds lovely!

  11. Do you have any suggestions on how to make this cream of chicken? What does the nutritional yeast do? I do not have any so could I leave out? I am not vegan so could I sub w/ something else?

    ReplyDelete
  12. Is there anything better than Mushroom Soup? Ok, I know Richa can probably think of a million things better, but seriously, it's one of my favorites! And I love this version from one of my favorite bloogers! :-)
