Healthy, Fresh, Easy-To-Make Meals: Mushroom Soup Recipe

Let’s talk food! My love for mushrooms is long and deep. I like to think I could live off sauteed mushrooms if needed. So it’s not surprising that one of my favorite dishes at the gorgeous, all-inclusive, luxury hotel Casa de Mita in Punta De Mita, Mexico is a mushroom soup that leaves me wanting more! The flavors are rich, the texture creamy; I want to literally jump in the soup bowl. If I wasn’t in public I would’ve licked the bowl clean. (I used my fingers instead; sorry, Mom!) Typically, this mushroom soup recipe calls for cream, but knowing I’m vegan the talented Chef Gonzalo adjusted the recipe, and it turned out just as good! I’m sharing it with y’all because it’s not only easy AND delicious, but it’s healthy: vegan, gluten-free, sugar-free. Only a handful of ingredients and cooking steps. Get going…just in time for the holidays! The mushroom soup recipe is as follows:
