Vegan Mushroom Soup

This is probably the most simple soup recipe that can be. At the same time, this soup is very tasty.¬†It is also light, gluten-free and vegan. ūüôā

You will need quite a bit of ingredients:

  • 3-4 potatoes

  • 1-2 carrots

  • 1-2 onions

  • 1/2 lb mushrooms (I made it with shiitake, but portobello or button mushrooms are also good)

  • Salt, pepper, seasonings

  • Vegetable oil 3-4 tbsp

You have to do:

Bring water to a boil in a large saucepan. Salt the water and add the chopped potatoes and carrots. Leave to cook for 20 minutes.

Meanwhile stir the diced onions with the vegetable oil in a frying pan.

Add slicing mushrooms and stir them with onions together. Add some salt, pepper and seasonings and continue to cook about 10 minutes.

Reduce the heat under the saucepan and add mushrooms and onions to it.

Allow to cook for at least 15 minutes.

When the soup is ready, you can use a blender to make it creamy. Or just eat it with some bread or croutons.
