Mushroom Miso Soup
Cream soups are a wonderful way to warm up on a Winter day, but are not so great for those who avoid dairy or meat products (even canned vegetable soups often have chicken or beef stock on the ingredient list).
Silken tofu can give soups a nice creamy texture that vegans and vegetarians can eat.
This recipe can be eaten as is for soup or can be used as a sauce or recipe ingredient.
The soup can be made with whatever type of mushrooms and miso you prefer.
This time I used Baby Bella mushrooms and a hearty red miso for a strong flavor.
I left the mushrooms in big pieces this time, but the soup can also be blended for a smoother texture.
