This Gluten-Free Vegan Cream of Mushroom Soup is a one-pot meal that’s ready in less than 30 minutes and made with clean ingredients.
I used to not be a big fan of mushrooms, but for some reason, I love them now!
I’ve already shared a couple of mushroom soup/sauce recipes, but this one is a little different because the mushrooms are sliced and diced instead of being blended. So there are pieces of soft mushrooms in each bite. Yum!
If you like the ~taste~ of mushrooms, but don’t like the texture, you may want to try Raw Vegan Cream of Mushroom Soup, Creamy Mushroom Sauce or even Pasta with Asparagus and Creamy Mushroom Sauce recipe, where the mushrooms are blended in a Vitamix so the flavor is there but not the texture.
And if you~do~ like the texture of mushrooms, you will love this recipe and you may want to try Cheesy Sprouted Brown Rice with Baby Spinach and Mushrooms, Portobello Mushroom Pave with White Asparagus Vinaigrette or an older recipe, Vegan Mushroom Lasagna.
