Oh, my little love affair with mushrooms…

Imagine me as a five year old, sitting at my grandparents kitchen table trying on my Princess Jasmine Halloween costume, stopping to grab a quick bite to eat before heading out for some family fall festivities.

“THERE’S NOT ENOUGH MUSHROOMS ON MY PIZZA!!!”

And believe it or not, I start balling my eyes out. Because nothing else in the world matters at this moment.

My 25-year-old self still believes she can never quite get enough mushrooms on anything. I mean, you chop up a giant pile of them and you think, oh yeah, that’s more than enough…I won’t even be able to fit them all in the frying pan. And then you cook them up, and they’re like half the size they were. And suddenly, there are NOT enough mushrooms after all.

If you happen to know this struggle as a fellow mushroom lover, then this Creamy Portobello Mushroom Soup is for you.

It’s filled with earthy, rich portobellos, along with some nutty flavoured creminis and my favourite, classic button mushrooms. And there’s a TON of them in this soup. So many, in fact, that I highly doubt you’ll have anything to complain about after you whip up a giant batch of this.

Except for the fact that you maybe won’t have enough room in your fridge/freezer to store the bazillion bowls that this recipe makes?

You gotta pick your battles, right?

On cold, dreary days, there’s really nothing better than sitting inside with a slew of movies (and maybe some garlic parmesan popcorn) and eating a giant pile of this Portobello Mushroom Soup. It’s a deliciously healthy and comforting soup that is naturally gluten free and easily made vegan with a little bit of vegetable stock and almond milk.

It’s pretty versatile, and you most likely already have all the ingredients on hand. No trips to the store for exotic ingredients, no fussing about in the kitchen for hours.

Just deliciousness within a matter of a half hour.

    Haha that’s so true about how much mushrooms shrink in size after cooking and how disappointing that is as a fellow mushroom lover. This soup looks like perfection. If only I could get my boyfriend to eat mushrooms… sigh.
