Golden Mushroom Soup
Updated: Mar 31, 2020
A big thank you to @homegrownprovisions for coming up with this amazing and heart warming soup. Perfect to cozy up with on a cold day and sit back and watch the rain outside!
2 tbsp olive oil
2 celery ribs, diced
2 carrots, peeled and diced
1 medium yellow onion, peeled and diced
1/2 cup Yukon gold potatoes, peeled and diced
3 cups assorted mushrooms, cleaned and sliced (I used shitake and crimini)
1 tbsp vegan butter
1 1/2 cups vegetable stock
1 1/2 cups flax milk (can sub almond milk here)
3/4 tsp salt
scant amount of ground black pepper
1 tsp Truly Turmeric
1/2 tbsp tamari
2 tbsp tahini
a handful of thyme (tied as a bouquet garni)
3-4 shallots, peeled and thinly sliced
3 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp of fresh thyme, roughly chopped
In a Dutch oven over medium-high heat, heat the olive oil with the diced onion, celery and carrot and salt. Saute for 7-10 minutes until the onion is soft and caramelized. Then add the potatoes. Cook for another 3-5 minutes, then add the mushrooms and vegan butter.
Allow the mushrooms to “sweat,” releasing much of their water content and cooking down until softened.
Then add the thyme, vegetable stock, flax milk, turmeric and black pepper. Allow the soup to simmer for about 15-20 minutes.
While the soup is simmering, caramelize the shallots. Place shallots and olive oil in a non-stick pan and caramelize over low heat for 5-7 minutes. Set aside.
Stir in the tahini and tamari (remove the thyme bouqet garni before doing so) then puree the soup using an immersion or high-speed blender (careful, now – soup will be hot!).
Ladle soup into bowls and garnish with coconut cream, caramelized shallots, turmeric and thyme as desired. Enjoy!
