I think it’s safe to say that I’ve become a soup lover. Three soups in only a few weeks is a blow away record for me. I’ve just fallen in love with its versatility, depth of flavours and how satisfied I feel after drinking it. I’ve definitely said this before: brown food happens to one of the most delicious kinds. Without a doubt, this creamy mushroom soup definitely falls within that category. It’s a beautiful creamy, flavour loaded soup that honestly tastes SO good! I could use a thousand words to describe it, but one thing for sure is: you MUST try this. It’s unbelievable the flavours that can come from so little ingredients.

I think I’ve come up with a perfect soup base. I’ve used the same “base” for my cauliflower soup, lentil soup and now, my creamy mushroom soup and it keeps winning. It’s kind of like homemade broth + garlic, onions and the main veggie. I know, CRAZY simple and I think that’s what lets it win so hard. The veggie of choice is insanely highlighted instead of covered up, and it shines through beautifully. The only difference in this creamy mushroom soup is the addition of a full can of coconut milk. By the way, it hits it out the park.

Take mushrooms. I adore garlic sautéed mushrooms because they taste so delicious and go with everything. As such, I knew I would have to make that the first step for this soup. I used 8, EIGHT, cloves of garlic. Garlic rules and that’s a whole lot of mushrooms. After adding in all the ingredients I did my new favourite step, to cream some of the soup then pour it back in. The Mr. and I tested and tested and found that 2 cups was perfect for this for the way WE love this soup.

It’s not a thick soup, but it’s not broth thin either. It’s a nice simple creamy soup. If you want a thick soup, I would recommend adding 3/4 cup less broth, and creaming everything. Then add in the broth if you want to thin it out. I loved this the way it was, and I was also craving this kind of soup.

The whole garlic mushrooms add that divine texture to the soup and turn it into even more of a meal. This would go perfectly with a crusty bread (YES) and a drizzle of coconut milk on top.

  1. This soup looks right up my alley! Coconut milk must have given it some extra creaminess and aroma.

  2. Deanna says:

    I just found you on instagram and I tried the creamy mushroom soup today. It. Is. Amazing! I am so excited about your website and all of the yummies that are on here. The chocolate banana muffins are next! Thank you so much!

    • Jessica says:

      You’re so welcome Deanna! Welcome to my site! So glad you enjoyed the soup, and I hope you continue to enjoy other recipes!

  3. Tamme says:

    Can you taste the coconut flavor?

  4. Lydia says:

    Just tried this and i’m amazed at how good it turned out. Im not a great cook and still managed to make this easily and have it actually taste good.

    • Jessica says:

      Aw I’m so happy to hear that Lydia! Thanks for letting me know! 🙂

  5. Emily McDermott says:

    Yum! Thanks. I made this two days ago and just had some leftovers for dinner tonight. The flavours are so much better a few days later. I’ll definitely be making it again.

    • Jessica says:

      So happy to hear Emily and so glad you enjoyed! Thanks for your feedback!!

  6. gabriela says:

    Do the mushrooms need to be sliced?

    • Jessica says:

      Hi Gabriela,

      Yes! But you don’t need to worry about them being even slices, but slicing them helps to incorporate more flavour into the mushrooms. Hope that helps!

  7. Phyllis says:

    Made this last night,,, so yummy,,, everyone loved it. I love all the recipes Ive tried so far. The only complaint was that it was a little bland… My boys love spicy,,, any recommendations?

  8. Nang says:

    I’ll try to make this soup tomorrow evening …. instead of coconut milk can I use evaporate milk?

    • Jessica says:

      Hi Nang,

      Sorry I’m just getting back to you! I can’t guarantee the results, but yes I do believe you can! It may not be as thick, but you can sub it. I hope you enjoy!!

  9. Jana says:

    I googled my way to this yummy vegan mushrooms soup, everyone at the table loved it! Amazing 😋

  10. Keneisha says:

    Jessica! I tried this mushroom soup tonight and it was FABULOUS! My son is the biggest pickey eater and he loved it. I will definitely try more of your recipes.

  11. Eva Borho says:

    Do you think I could sub out the coconut milk for something like almond milk? My husband doesn’t even like the idea of coconut and my sister is allergic. The soup looks so good.

    • Jessica says:

      Hi Eva,

      Definitely!! Or cashew milk since it’s a bit thicker. Hope that helps and you all enjoy!!

  12. Davið says:

    Just tried this out and it was very good! added a little bit of white vine vinagrette just to get som acid going. Will add this to my recipie book!

    Best regards! David the icelandic chef.

  13. TK says:

    I made this soup this morning. I used shallots instead of onions and almond milk instead of coconut milk because that is what I had on-hand. Seriously this is the best soup I have ever made. It isn’t all that visually appealing but the flavor is amazing. I wish I had not cut the recipe in half. I will be making this again as soon as I can get to the store for more mushrooms.

    • Jessica says:

      Hi TK,

      Thanks so much for your feedback!! I am SO happy you enjoyed this so much!! I totally agree – not the prettiest, but so flavourful.

  14. Katie says:

    Can you use this in recipes that call for cream of mushroom soup?

    • Jessica says:

      Hey Katie,

      I’m not sure at all! I’ve never tried canned cream of mushroom soup, but I know it’s very thick so I’m not sure if this is an appropriate substitute.

  15. Arikusu says:

    I’m making this right now! I halved the recipe, and added celery and spinach. It smells good! I hope it isn’t too much coconut flavor, because I adore mushrooms!

  16. Ruth Anne Henault says:

    I had seen the recipe but not saved it -then a couple of days later when I found a big bag of mushrooms on special, I was madly scrolling back and searching Facebook -so glad I persevered and found it again! Delicious and so easy! I was hoping hubby would try the tomato soup I had made the next day so I could have more of the mushroom for myself, but he specifically asked for the fabulous mushroom soup! I had used full fat coconut milk and cringed a bit at the fat content so added a little more stock. Will make more today and use another plant milk to compare with the coconut. Suspect I should restock pantry with lite coconut milk at least and plan to use less stock to keep it even creamier next time.

    • Jessica says:

      Hey Ruth Anne,

      So happy to hear you enjoyed!! Yes you can use lite coconut milk instead or even the boxed coconut milk. Sometimes I use almond milk. It won’t be as creamy/rich, but just as delicious!!

  17. Jeff says:

    Just made this soup…OMG…. totally awesome. Please tell me there aren’t any calories involved. Reduced broth to 2C, used coconut culinary milk…..soooo deelish!!!!

  18. Divya says:

    Thanks for sharing this recipe! The soup turned out amazing!

  19. Elizabeth says:

    I love your soup recipes. Many online recipes tend to make soup so complicated. I find I enjoy simple foods much more. I’ll definitely be trying out your cauliflower soup recipe today and maybe some carrot soup and mushroom soup in the near future!

  20. Rachael says:

    I am eating this right now and it is AMAZING. I added a little flour to thicken it up and substituted shallot instead of onion (it’s all i had). I finished mine with wild rice that I had leftover to my bowl and a SPLASH of sherry vinegar. The vinegar took this over the top. Highly recommend!

  21. Tabitha says:

    This was sooooo delicious! Thank you!

  22. Laure says:

    Just tried your recipe. It was amazing! Thank you for sharing!

  23. Monica Langley says:

    Please consider adding nutrient break down and serving size.

  24. Heather Reid says:

    • Gavin | Jessica in the Kitchen says:

      Thank you Mrs. Henault!! We really appreciate it!

  26. Chris Dawson says:

    Hi Jessica,

    I found your recipe last fall and love it! I’m a breast cancer survivor who has given up dairy and never thought I’d be able to enjoy a creamy mushroom soup again. Thanks for solving that problem:). I use almond milk rather than coconut milk because there’s a possibility that boiling coconut milk may lead to higher breast cancer risk. I also use double the garlic and 1.5 times the mushrooms.

    Here’s my problem – I cannot find the written recipe for your mushroom soup on your website! I want to link the recipe to my brand new website (still u
    under construction) as one of my favorites. Beautiful pictures and blog but where’s the written instructions? Am I missing something?
    Thanks in advance for your help,

    • Jessica says:

      Hi Chris,

      I’m so happy you loved my recipe and thanks for sharing your story! We did some changes on the blog and haven’t fixed all of them, so the blog post now appears *after* the “Related Recipes” section, but before the comments. I’m slowly going through the site updating this, but I’ve gone ahead and updated this one! You would just need to scroll down a bit more past the photos to see it! Let me know if you do now – thank you!!

  27. Simon says:

    This soup is great! I absolutely love it.

      Thank you Simon! We’re glad you enjoyed it!
