As the weather gets colder I’m in need of something warm and cozy. Which means it’s time to cook a new, super comforting soup recipe like this Mushroom Vegetable Soup.
I’ve loaded this soup up with lots of mushrooms and seasonal veggies. The savory seasonings and a little coconut milk make it delicious, hearty, sweet and savory and super healthy. ♡
What You Need to Make this Cozy Mushroom Vegetable Soup
- Mushrooms: Lots of them give it a rich umami taste. I like baby bella mushrooms, they have an earthy taste and are easy to find. White button mushrooms or shiitake mushrooms will also work.
- Aromatics: This is the foundation of your soup, onion, carrots, celery, and garlic.
- Sweet Potatoes: They provide healthy carbs which makes the soup satisfying. Butternut squash can also be used.
- Italian Seasoning plus a bay leaf, gives a savory flavor to the soup. Italian seasoning is a blend of dried Italian-inspired herbs such as basil, marjoram, oregano, rosemary, and thyme. It’s makes seasoning your soup super easy.
- Chicken or Vegetable Broth: Make your your own or store bought
- Coconut Milk: This gives the soup a rich creamy taste but since there isn’t much you won’t taste the coconut at all.
- Kale: I add in lots of fresh kale at the end, but you could use baby spinach or Swiss chard.
How to Make Cozy Mushroom Vegetable Soup
Use a large stock pot or dutch oven for this soup. Make sure all ingredients are chopped and ready to go before beginning.
Start with the aromatics. Cook the onions, celery and carrots, stirring until soft, then add the garlic.
Add the sliced mushrooms, bay leaf and Italian seasoning. Mix to coat the mushrooms with the seasonings.
Add the broth and sweet potatoes and bring to a boil, then cook until the potatoes are tender 10-15 minutes.
Stir in the kale and coconut milk and simmer until kale is wilted, about 3 minutes.
Add fresh ground black pepper and additional salt if desired, then remove from heat and serve.
Thanks to all the vegetables, rich creamy flavor and delicious umami mushrooms, it is a cold-weather essential that will make you feel like you’re getting a big hug.
I hope you love the soup and find it as warm and comforting as I do!
