    Golden Mushroom & Onion Soup

    Serves 4-6


    • 2 large or 3 medium onions, diced
    • 4 cups white button or cremini mushrooms, sliced
    • 2 ½ tsp dried dill weed
    • 1 ½ tbsp paprika
    • ¼ tsp ground black pepper
    • 1 ½ tsp caraway seeds
    • 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
    • 4 cups vegetable stock
    • 3 tbsp Braggs soy alternative
    • 1 ½ cups unsweetened plant-based milk (I used oat milk)
    • ¼ cup brown rice flour*
    • 1 tbsp lemon juice

    *NOTE that brown rice flour is used here because it can be added to soups and gravies and it doesn’t clump. I highly recommend using brown rice flour if you can since it is so much easier to incorporate than other flours. If you choose to use another kind of flour I recommend removing some of the soup liquid and mixing it thoroughly with the flour before adding it to the soup so you are adding a well-mixed liquid rather than the dry flour.


    1. Heat a medium-large soup pot over medium heat. When it is hot add onions and let them cook, stirring occasionally, until they are translucent and becoming golden (5-8 minutes).
    2. Add mushrooms and let them start to cook down (another 5-8 minutes).
    3. Add all herbs, spices and nutritional yeast and mix everything together well.
    4. Add vegetable stock and Braggs and bring everything to a boil.
    5. Turn the heat down, add the milk and brown rice flour and stir until everything is well mixed.
    6. Simmer for 15-20 minutes over low heat, stirring occasionally.
    7. Just before serving add lemon juice and adjust seasonings to taste if necessary.

    Serve with crusty bread and/or a green salad!
