  • 1/3 cup dried mushrooms
  • ¾ cup hot water
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 250 g button mushrooms
  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon whole wheat flour chickpea flour for gf
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • ½ teaspoon oregano dried
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • ½ cup mushroom soaking liquid
  • ½ cup vegan cream
  • Truffle oil facultative but oh so tasty


  • Soak dried mushrooms in a bowl with the hot water and set aside.
  • Clean the fresh mushrooms and cut them coarsely. In a large pot on medium heat, sauté the mushrooms in olive oil. Add a bit of salt. They will start by losing all their water but it will eventually evaporate.
  • Once the water has evaporated, add chopped onions and cook for 5 minutes, stirring often.Add the rehydrated mushrooms (don’t discard the water!!) and one tablespoon of flour. Cook for one to two minutes, stirring often.
  • Add dried oregano, the whole garlic cloves, ½ cup of the mushroom soaking water and 2 cups of vegetable stock. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 20 to 30 minutes.
  • With an immersion blender, blend the soup in a more or less homogenous puree according to your preference. Personally, I like a soup with tiny bits of mushrooms in it. If too much liquid evaporated, add more warm broth.
  • Add cream, mix well and serve. If you have any, pour a bit of truffle oil on the soup before serving to give it a new dimension.
