Creamy (Dairy-Free) Shiitake Mushroom Soup

Chilly nights need this Creamy (Dairy-Free) Shiitake Mushroom Soup. Trust us. We’ve tried it; we know. And even better, it’s rather easy to make, especially once you’ve gathered and chopped all your simple ingredients. Of course, you can make it without the Shiitake Mushroom Powder, but we can give you two good reasons to choose to get some…

  1. The flavour is incredible; it boosts a mushroom soup (or a mushroom-anything) to new heights.
  2. The health benefits are superb; high in B vitamins, a source of Vitamin D, they support the immune system and aid heart health, fight cancer cells… the list goes on, but you probably get the idea.

If we’ve convinced you, then let us give you two recipes to inspire you in ways to use your new stash of shiitake. Plan ahead; keep the soup-making for a quick-supper-night, and then set aside time to wind down in the kitchen as you absorb yourself in a longer cooking process with our Shiitake & Brown Mushroom Risotto. We made the ingredient lists similar, so that when you go shopping it’s almost as if you’re shopping for one dish.

Hurrah to that.

Creamy (Dairy-Free) Shiitake Mushroom Soup

Serves: 2 main or 4 starter portions

Ingredients

  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 cups brown mushrooms, roughly chopped
  • 2 cups mixed wild mushrooms, roughly chopped
  • 1 Tbsp fresh garlic, chopped
  • 1 Tbsp thyme, chopped
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1⁄3 cup Drasanvi Shiitake Powder
  • 2½ cups vegetable stock or bone broth
  • 1 cup coconut milk

Garnish Suggestions

Fresh wild mushrooms, thyme, and Drasanvi Hemp Hearts

Instructions

  1. In a large pan, sizzle onions in olive oil on high until they start turning glassy.
  2. Add the chopped mushrooms and sautée until they’re sweating nicely.
  3. Turn heat down to medium-high and stir in the garlic and thyme, just long enough to release that magic garlic aroma.
  4. Stir in the salt, shiitake powder, stock and coconut milk, and simmer gently for 10 minutes.
  5. This step depends on your texture preference… choose one of these:
    • Totally chunky: serve as is
    • Partly chunky: remove half the soup and blend until smooth, adding it back to the pan and gently reheating before serving
    • Totally smooth: blend all the soup, and gently reheat
  6. Pour into bowls, garnish and serve.
