Savory Vegan Mushroom Soup

Mushroom soup is a fall and winter favorite but now you can make a light, healthy version low in calories and fat yet packed with flavor and nutrients. Whole food ingredients like mushrooms, onion and garlic make the base for this simple soup you can make in minutes. Vegetable broth and the secret ingredient, rolled oats, blend together to create a creamy smooth, savory soup. Every ingredient in this recipe lends itself to health; mushrooms in particular are packed with immune boosting compounds called beta-glucans and are a rich source of vitamins and minerals. Excellent for freezing or leftovers, be sure to whip up a batch of savory vegan mushroom soup for your lunch or dinner this week!

Yields 8 Cups


1 Tablespoon grapeseed oil
1 pound white or cremini mushrooms, sliced
1 medium yellow onion, roughly chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 quart vegetable broth
2/3 cup old-fashioned rolled oats (not instant or steel-cut)
½ teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 Tablespoons mellow white miso
¼ cup chopped fresh parsley

Coat the bottom of soup pot with grapeseed oil and place over medium-high heat. Sauté mushrooms, onion and garlic 3-4 minutes or until they soften. Cover; reduce heat to low and cook 4-5 minutes until tender and mushrooms release liquid. Add vegetable stock and oats. Cover and simmer 10 minutes. Transfer soup to a large blender or use an immersion blender in the soup pot. Puree all ingredients, adding salt and pepper, tasting to test flavor. Add miso when soup is no longer boiling hot as boiling can destroy the probiotics in the miso. Return mixture to pot and simmer over low heat 3 minutes. Ladle into bowls; garnish with parsley and serve hot.
