Cream of Mushroom Soup

This savory Cream of Mushroom Soup is so easy, simple and delicious.  What’s better is you can make last night’s leftover veggies into cream soup today.  A keeper for any busy Mama’s recipe file!

The Mushrooms

Crimini mushrooms are available all year round.  Although mushrooms in general are considered unclean in Ayurveda, they have some anti-carcinogenic properties and are beneficial for the immune and cardiovascular systems.

Marinate for at least 15 minutes or overnight:

2 tsps sea salt

2 tbspns balsamic vinegar

2 tbspns extra virgin olive oil

2 pounds crimini mushrooms (or portabello), sliced thinly or chopped into bite size pieces

The Cream Soup

Puree in a blender:

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1/2 tsp ground ginger

1/2 tsp onion powder

2 tbspns nutritional yeast

2 tbspns Nama Shoyu (unpasteurized soy sauce)

1/4 cup raw almond butter (you can also use raw tahini or raw cashew butter)

2 cups water

To Serve

Place marinated mushrooms in a bowl and top with soup.  Garnish with sliced scallions or cilantro or other herbs.
