Mushroom Garlic Soup Recipe

Mushroom Garlic Bisque

GirlA loves to share her vegan recipes. Recently, she posted a soothing and seasonal mushroom and garlic bisque in The Dairy Free Diva Recipe Exchange cooking group.

I had a feeling I was going to like this mauve-colored soup because it not only has mushrooms but wine as well. Yep, I love it. This comes from a cookbook that I’ve recently rediscovered — I’ve had it for years. Beyond the Moon Cookbook is all vegetarian, so I had to veganize the soup, which was no problem. Served with some rustic bread, this soup was ideal for a chilly Fall evening.

Check out her recipe, after the break.

Vegan Mushroom Garlic Soup Recipe


  1. 2 cups dry red wine
  1. 1-1/2 lbs. mushrooms, quartered (about 6 cups)
  1. 1 tbsp. Earth Balance margarine
  1. 1-1/2 cup onions, chopped
  1. 10 large garlic cloves, minced
  1. 1/2 tsp. dried thyme
  1. 1-1/2 cup fresh bread crumbs (I used an olive loaf and chopped up about 1/2 of it)
  1. 1 cup Tofutti sour cream
  1. 2-1/2 cup almond milk
  1. 2 tbsp. tamari
  1. 1 tsp. salt
  1. 2 tbsp. fresh basil, chopped
  1. Dash of black pepper


In a large soup pot, heat 1-1/2 cups of the wine and add the mushrooms.

Simmer, partially covered, until the mushrooms have absorbed all wine, about 20-25 minutes. Meanwhile, melt the butter in a skillet and add the onions, garlic, and thyme until the onions are soft, about 5 minutes.

Puree the onions in a food processor.

Add the bread crumbs, sour cream, and three-quarters of the cooked mushrooms.

(Fresh bread crumbs)

Process until smooth.

Stir the puree into the soup pot with the left over mushrooms. Whisk in the milk, tamari, salt, basil, pepper, remaining 1/2 cup red wine, and 2-1/2 cups of water. Heat until warmed through, stirring often. Ladle into soup bowls and enjoy!
