creamy vegan shiitake soup

Shiitake mushrooms are full of amazing health benefits. I was a little curious as to what I would do with this 6 oz. container of dried shiitake slices I picked up from Costco. After trying this simple and delicious soup, I have a feeling the possibilities will be endless! For the creamy vegan shiitake soup, you will need:


  1. 3 cups water
  2. 1 cup dried shiitakes
  3. 1 1/2-inch piece of ginger root, minced
  4. 1 clove garlic, minced
  5. 1 cup coconut milk
  6. 1-2 tbsp. Bragg’s Amino Acids


In a stockpot, bring water and mushrooms to a boil, then let simmer. Add ginger and garlic. Cook on low for 20 minutes. Add coconut milk and liquid aminos. Let soup cool and transfer in two batches to a blender. Blend until creamy. Serve in your favorite soup bowls and enjoy. You will love this one!
