As temperatures begin to cool, the craving for warm and comforting dinners returns. Soup is an easy meal that can work as both a lunch and dinner option. We’ll show you how to make mushroom soup using natural, plant-based ingredients.

Did you know that white, cremini, and portobello mushrooms are all the same type of mushroom? Each of the different names corresponds to the ages of the Agaricus bisporus: white/button is the youngest, cremini is teenager, and portobello is the adult. As they age, they lose water content which allows the flavors to concentrate and develop. If you prefer the lighter taste of white mushrooms, choose those when making your mushroom soup. However, for those who love deep, earthy umami flavors, you’re better off choosing the cremini variety.
