Vegan Cream of Mushroom and Rice Soup

Vegan Cream of Mushroom and Rice Soup

You know, sometimes you’re just a girl, standing in front of the fridge, asking it to inspire you to make something amazing for dinner out of nothing. That was me the other night. And my fridge delivered!

I spotted a forgotten container of baby bellas when I realized what I could make for dinner. On this cold January day, I was suddenly craving cream of mushroom soup with rice. With no recipe, I just threw this together. There were absolutely no leftovers, and even my mushroom reluctant daughter enjoyed it! So this will definitely go into rotation as a winter meal, and now I’m sharing the recipe with you!


  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 T minced garlic
  • Olive oil, for sauteing
  • 1 carton baby bella mushrooms, diced small. (I used my hand chopper)
  • ½ cup uncooked rice (I like Basmati)
  • 1 can Great Northern Beans, drained and rinsed
  • ¼ cup flour
  • 1 carton vegetable broth
  • 1 T Better Than Bouillon paste, vegetable flavor
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup Silk Protein Milk, original


  • In a soup pot or Dutch oven, warm 1-2 T olive oil over medium heat until fragrant. 
  • Add onions and garlic, add salt, and saute until just turning brown. 
  • Add diced mushrooms and saute until brown.
  • Sprinkle flour over onion and mushroom mixture, stirring until combined.
  • Deglaze the pan with a bit of the broth, stirring to get all of the brown bits off the bottom of the pan.
  • Add remaining broth, beans, bouillon paste, and rice, pepper to taste, and thyme, and bring to a boil.
  • Reduce heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes. 
  • Add plant milk until desired consistency is achieved (about 1 cup).
  • Adjust seasonings to taste, and enjoy! Serves 4.
