Savory Mushroom Soup7

As the days get more and more crisp here in Asheville, I find myself craving steaming bowls of soups and stews. This past weekend was perfect for staying in and cooking up different soups for the week. One of them being a Mushroom soup.

This is one of my favorite soups of all time. It is so easy and uses minimal ingredients.

The secret to this deep, rich soup is a long slow caramelization, the key to unlocking the mushroom’s magic. This is just pure essence of mushroom. But, this isn’t your typical creamy Mushroom soup in the sense of diary. This soup is 100% vegan and paleo friendly.
