I really enjoy my brown butter cream of mushroom soup, but wondered if it might be possible to do it without the dairy and make a vegan version. It's not the same, but it totally works, and a great option if you can't do dairy for whatever reason.
Vegan Keto Dairy-Free Cream of Mushroom Soup Recipe
- 3 tablespoons vegan butter
- ¼ cup yellow onion, diced
- Kosher salt, to taste
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 4 cups mushrooms, sliced
- 1 tablespoon gluten-free tamari soy sauce
- ½ tablespoon fresh thyme, chopped (*Or ½ teaspoon dried thyme.)
- ½ teaspoon white pepper
- 3 cups vegetable broth (*Or sub with chicken bone broth if not vegan.)
- 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
- ½ cup coconut cream
- Optional garnishes: fresh parsley, grated parmesan, drizzle of extra virgin olive oil.
Heat the vegan butter in a large pot over medium heat. Add the onion and sauté until softened, around 3 minutes. Stir in the minced garlic and cook another 30 seconds.
Add the mushrooms to the pot, stirring them in to the onion/garlic mixture. Sauté the mushrooms, stirring occasionally, for about 5 minutes. If the mixture looks dry, add a touch of avocado oil or vegan butter as needed.
Add the tamari, thyme, salt, and pepper. Pour in the broth and stir, continue cooking for a couple of minutes.
Remove the pot from the heat. Carefully ladle about ¾ of the soup into a blender or food processor, leaving the remaining soup in the pot. Blend/process the soup on high for about 30 seconds or until smooth. (*Alternatively, you can use an immersion blender straight in the pot until you get your desired consistency.)
Pour the blended soup back into the pot, combining it with the remaining, non-blended soup. Return the pot to the stovetop on low heat. Stir in the coconut cream and the nutritional yeast. Simmer the soup on low for about 5-10 minutes. Ladle soup into bowls and top with your choice of garnishes.
