Creamy Mushroom Soup

This Creamy Mushroom Soup has a hearty umami flavor that is very satisfying.  Even though it’s rich and creamy it’s made without any dairy or nuts. It’s vegan and paleo, full of antioxidants and nutrients.

Creamy Mushroom SoupI love this rich and creamy blended soup. It’s a wonderful, filling meal or snack that provides you with easy to digest healing nutrients that nourish you making it easy to maintain your natural weight, detoxify and feel great.

If you want to lose weight naturally, having a soup available in the refrigerator gives you a complete healthy meal or snack at your fingertips. When you have something like this available, it is easier to prevent binging or eating junk.

People usually think of soup for lunch or dinner but I often have soup for breakfast especially when I am in a hurry.  Since soup has a high water content and is alkaline, it is a perfect meal in the morning when you are needing hydration.

I love the nutrition this Creamy Mushroom Soup provides.

  • Mushrooms are an excellent source of potassium, a mineral that helps lower elevated blood pressure and reduces the risk of stroke.
  • Mushrooms are a rich source of riboflavin, niacin, and selenium which is shown to reduce prostate cancer.
  • Cooking mushrooms help break down fungal cell walls, rendering mushroom flesh not only more digestible but also releasing significant nutritional value contained within the cells.
  • Cauliflower is a cruciferous vegetable high in antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and fiber.

You can use water, vegetable broth or chicken broth for this soup depending on your diet.  I use only enough liquid to barely cover the vegetables.  This makes it thick.  If you like a thinner soup add more liquid.
