Recipe type: Soup
Serves: 6
Ingredients
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 small onions, diced
  • 3.5 oz. shitake mushrooms, de-stemmed and sliced
  • 16 oz. baby portobella mushrooms (or regular button mushrooms), sliced
  • ¼ cup tamari (or soy sauce)
  • 2 tsp dried dill
  • 1½ tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • ¼ cup wholewheat flour
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • 3 cups unsweetened plain almond milk (or soy milk)
Instructions
  1. In a stockpot or large saucepan, heat olive oil over medium heat and cook onions until translucent.
  2. Add mushrooms and cook them down for about 5 minutes.
  3. Add tamari, dill, paprika, pepper and lemon juice.
  4. Once the mushrooms are quite cooked down and have released a substantial amount of liquid, stir in the flour to form a chunky mushroom paste.
  5. Immediately add the first cup of broth and bring the mixture up to a simmer.
  6. Add in the second cup of broth, and bring to a simmer once more.
  7. Follow the same procedure with the almond milk, adding one cup at a time, and bringing to a simmer (not a boil) each time.
  8. Once all five cups of liquid have been added, let the pot simmer (not boil) for 10-15 minutes.
  9. Turn off heat; let sit 5-10 minutes before serving.
  10. Optional: For a creamy soup, blend it using an immersion (stick) or regular blender (in batches).
