I hope all of you are ready to get your SLURRRRPPPP on!
You know why soups are my favorite things to make? It's because soups are REAL LIFE food.
You know, you're exhausted from work, gym, picking up around the house, and just the thought of opening your fridge to pull stuff and throw it in the microwave...
Yea, soups are for those days. Because you toss it in a pot, and let it simmer for like 30 minutes and your done. Dinner is served and everyone is happy.
And with all REAL LIFE recipes this one starts with a solid foundation: leeks, garlic, onion, carrots, and thyme.
Add in ALL THE MUSHROOM goodness with a splash of balsamic vinegar.
Guys, I really didnt get the whole mushroom thing until a few years ago when I tried it at a local restaurant. It was creamy, savory, and actually had a meat-like quality to it. And when it's added to a soup, it turns it into this wonderful velvety concoction that is amazing until the last sluuuurrrrrppppp.
Pour in some vegetable stock, season with salt and pepper, and top it with some coconut milk. SO GOOD.
All of these items are usually in my fridge, so it was done in 30 minutes!
To make this a meal, I love serving this with some roasted chicken!
When is the thyme added to the soup? With the veggie stock? Also, it doesn’t look like the balsamic vinegar part was added to the instructions yet.
Hello, I was wondering if this soup is freezable? If so, what is the best way to do it? Ziplocks? or Tupperware? It is so delicious, I don't want to waste it!!!
I personally haven’t frozen this soup, but I don’t see why you couldn’t! Just store in a freezer safe bag or container and put in slow cooker or instant pot to warm back up again!

I love this soup. One of my favorite recipes! It's nice on a cold night after I get home from work and super easy to put together!
Delicious. I used a medley of mushrooms, reduced fat coconut milk, my beef broth(whole30), and some mushroom powder. NEVER would know there is coconut milk in this recipe!
Thank you Lynn! So glad you enjoyed this! And I love that the coconut adds the creaminess without the coconut taste!
Add balsamic with veg broth or as garnish to soup in bowl ?
Add about 1 tbs balsamic vinegar with vegetable broth. Sorry about that. I will correct the instructions!
Does the coconut milk flavor come through? I like my mushroom soup to not taste of coconut. Thanks
Hi JoAnn! No. it's unsweetened and pretty flavorless. It's use is to add a creaminess to the soup. But feel free to use any kind of milk or half and half here as a substitute! ☺️
