Vegan Corn and Mushroom Soup is a simple, quick and comforting soup loaded with vegetables. It is one of the best soups that can be made in no time and is best on a cold or rainy day.

This soup is also a good way to enjoy some mushrooms. Not everyone likes mushroom’s and if you want to start enjoying some, I would say this is a good recipe. Mushrooms are low in calories and are a rich source of fibre. There are different types of mushrooms available and each has different nutritional benefits. One can read more about mushrooms online. 

Vegetables used in soup

I like making such vegetables and especially Indo Chinese type of soup for my evening meals on days. This Vegan Corn and Mushroom soup is filling and easy to make. It has the goodness of mushroom and carrots and the crunch from the sweet corn. One can use bell peppers, zucchini and also celery in this soup.

Recipe process of making Soup

I have sauteed this in simple onion, ginger and garlic. Veggies are then added. Mixed along with sauces to give it some extra flavour. Veggies are simmered in water and allowed to boil for a few minutes. 

Corn Starch Slurry / Rice Flour Slurry

Corn starch slurry is added to add thickness to the soup. If you are on a gluten-free diet be sure to use 100 per cent corn starch that is gluten-free or you can replace the corn starch with rice flour or Tapioca Flour, however, the texture will vary. If you are okay with the consistency, you can even skip corn starch altogether.

The Theme

I am sharing this with our group Shhhhh Cooking Secretly Challenge group, where the theme for this month is Moonsoon Treats. The theme was suggested by Shobha Ji from Shobha’s Food Mazza. Shobha Ji’s blog is a treasure of recipes and especially if you are looking for authentic recipes from Sindhi Cuisine. I want to try her healthy Detox Soup aka Drumstick soup. Looks so delicious and healthy and perfect for monsoon or chilly weather.

Meera Girdhar from Exotic and Easy cooking was my partner for the month. She gave me ginger and vinegar as the secret ingredients and I made this healthy, Vegan Corn and Mushroom Soup. 

Meera made this delicious monsoon special Air-Fried Corn kebab with the secret ingredients salt and green chilli. I also want to try here Lemon Chilly Baby corn. It looks dangerously addictive and yummy monsoon snack.

  • Once you get a boil in the soup simmer for 2-3 minutes.
