This Cream of Wild Mushroom soup is a plant-based version of one of my favorite soups. I was always a huge fan of Ina Garten’s famous cream of wild mushroom soup. It called for one stick of butter and two cups of heavy cream! This is one of those things that are hard to make plant-based. I tried it with almond milk, soy milk, pea milk, but nothing gave me that smoothness I was looking for. At that point, I knew nothing else would do the job as well as coconut milk. So here we are, with a smooth and dairy-free version. Adapted from: Cream of Wild Mushroom Soup, by Ina Garten.
