Mushroom Soup with Thyme

Spring is near and I wanted to make a soup that reminded me of spring and being in the garden. If you didn’t know, gardening is one of my favourite things to do. Growing your own food is such a full-filling activity. Unfortunately, I don’t grow mushrooms but I do grow onions, garlic, and thyme and I am looking forward to growing more this year!

Let’s Make Some Soup!

I love making this soup, the mushrooms add such a meaty flavour and the thyme gives it that earthy rustic taste.

You can definitely make this vegan by substituting the butter for vegan butter or sub 1/4 cup of butter with 2 tbsp of Extra Virgin Olive Oil.

When it comes to adding the salt, my advice is the add the bulk of the salting last. This is important if you are using salted broth, you don’t want to over-salt your soup.
