My version of Healthy Mushroom Soup with no dairy added is rich, loaded with meaty Portabella mushrooms, and has a deep flavor that’s amazing. If you’re a mushroom lover, then this is the soup for you!
No Dairy Mushroom Soup: Perfectly Delicious
I really, really like a bowl of good mushroom soup. Unfortunately, most recipes call for heavy cream, half & half, and other awesome ingredients that I LOVE but have been trying to reduce or at least pay careful attention to.
Now, I am just tickled because I think I’ve hit on something just right. This mushroom soup recipe is rich with that meaty taste of portabella mushrooms and is seasoned perfectly. It’s a broth-based soup like my Garden Vegetable Soup, that is easy to make in just one pot! I like to top a warm bowl full of scallions and a pinch of fresh time. It’s so good, and you’ll never miss the dairy!

Tips And Tricks For This Soup Recipe
- Beef Stock Choice: Opt for a low-sodium or homemade beef stock. This will ensure a healthier soup and allow you to control the salt content. If you’re vegetarian or vegan, you can swap out the beef stock for a vegetable or mushroom stock.
- Season Gradually: After blending, taste your soup. Add seasonings gradually, stirring well after each addition to achieve the desired flavor without over-salting.
- Stir Regularly: As your soup simmers, stir it occasionally. This prevents the ingredients from sticking to the bottom and ensures even cooking and a beautiful texture.
- Boil Gently: Bring the mixture to a gentle boil once you’ve added your beef stock. Don’t let it boil too vigorously,, as this can overcook the mushrooms and diminish their natural flavors.
How To Clean Mushrooms
Mushrooms absorb water, so you want to clean them without soaking or rinsing carefully. All you need is a damp paper towel to wipe over each mushroom, removing all the dirt. That’s it!
How To Store Healthy Mushroom Soup
To store any of the leftover soup, put it in an airtight container and keep it in the refrigerator. I’ve found that one of the best ways to store this soup is in mason jars. The mushroom soup will keep in the fridge for 4-5 days.
