Super Immunity Garlic Mushroom Soup (Dairy Free)

Print

With winter around the corner, and the flu stuck on every subway pole, boost your immunity and protect yourself with this mushroom soup! The shallots, garlic, mushrooms, and thyme lend this soup so much flavor, while the almond milk gives it a touch of creaminess. You can use any nut milk here, or omit it completely.

The humble fungi are serious superfoods; they contain ergosterols, a compound that creates Vitamin D, which alongside beta-glucans stimulate your immune system. So cook up some of these flu warriors for an easy weekday meal, or blend up a batch for your dinner party–your friends won’t even know you’re their secret hero.

Can you think of anything more satisfying and yet so good for you?

Further Food Commentary:

I love this mushroom soup recipe as it is much more suited for various gastrointestinal disorders, and for aiding in weight loss. Using almond milk in place of cream significantly reduces fat and calories. Since mushrooms are porous in nature and absorb fluids easily, the mushrooms will thicken the soup by absorbing the almond milk and broth. No need for fat in this recipe!

Mushrooms will not only contribute to the taste and consistency of the soup, but will also add an extensive list of health benefits. Crimini mushrooms are super high in antioxidants and contain anti-inflammatory and immune boosting properties. These properties are particularly important for people with GI disorders. As you may know GI disorders, especially when not managed, are known to wreak havoc on the immune system, thus causing inflammation.
