EARTH ANGEL VEGAN’S POTATO MUSHROOM AND GREEN BEAN SOUP turned out to be one of the best soups I have ever eaten. I went to the farmers market and bought a quart of fresh green beans. I had just gone there to buy some corn but the green beans were beautiful. I may have to go back and get more today… thats how good it was.
You will need a large heavy bottom soup pot. I make soups in my instant pot pressure cooker and in my rice cooker. This recipe can be adapted to use in one of those but here I will give the soup pot on the stove version.
4 large white potatoes cut into bite sized chunks
2 cups sliced mushrooms
2-3 cups fresh cut green beans (you can use a bag of frozen in a pinch)
1 medium white onion chopped
1 teaspoon salt (optional for low/no salt diet)
3 Tablespoons Funky Chicken Broth Powder (recipe on blog)
5 cups water
1/2 cup raw cashews that have been soaked in warm water for 1 hour
1/2 cup unflavored unsweetened plant milk
1 tablespoon cornstarch (organic if possible)
1 tablespoon Wildtree Absolutely Onion seasoning
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
In your large heavy bottom soup pot place the mushroom and onion over medium heat let them sizzle and start to soften while you are peeling and chopping the potatoes and chopping the green beans if you bought fresh. Add a splash of water to the mushrooms and onions if they start to stick and stir them around frequently. Add your potatoes and green beans, salt, 5 cups water and 3 tablespoons of the funky chicken powder stir and lower heat to a simmer, cover and cook about 30 minutes until the potatoes and beans are tender… longer if necessary. In the mean time… place your soaked cashews in the blender with the milk, absolutely onion seasoning and cornstarch and blend until smooth.
When the veggies are all tender to your liking add the blender ingredients and stir into the soup pot and bring to a boil. I should thicken nicely when reaching a boil… let boil one minute while stirring and then take off the heat and stir in the 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar.
