What do you do with your leftovers? How about a nice healthy soup.Jump to Recipe
My Vegan Gluten Free Mushroom Soup was developed because of the leftover mushrooms I had from my VEGAN MUSHROOM RIBS. I used the stems from King oyster mushrooms for this recipe and had the caps left over. I also had the pieces that I cut off as I squared off the stems for my ribs. To amp up the mushroom flavor, I added more mushrooms including bella mushrooms. The best thing about a mushroom soup is its earthy flavor.
Soups are easy to make but creating a deep flavor is the challenge. Mushrooms have taste but not a lot. The flavor comes from other vegetables, fresh herbs, and spices. The mushrooms have earthiness but take on the flavors of the other ingredients so well. My soup was also really hearty with the inclusion of cannellini beans and creamed corn.
The other comment I would make about this soup and soups in general, they are a great reservoir for clearing out the fridge and the pantry. Which is another way to say, take advantage of what you have on hand. Choose items that you simply like to eat and add them in to your soup.
