Vegan Hungarian Mushroom Soup
This recipe is inspired by traditional Hungarian Mushroom Soup but vegan. It is creamy and thick and packed with umami flavour. The extra creaminess in this recipe comes from soy milk and blended cashews. Non-vegan versions of this soup often use sour cream, so the combination of cashews and lemon juice really satisfies that flavour and provides a vegan sour creaminess.
The way you blend is up to you, I prefer using an immersion blender in the pot but use what you have, you can carefully pour the ingredients into a high-speed blender and blend until smooth before serving. I like my soup very well blended but you can leave it a little bit chunky if you prefer.
