Creamy Vegan Cannellini And Spinach Mushroom Soup

January 12, 2022
Can you ever have enough soup recipes on deck during the wintertime? I think not. During the frigid Northeast winter months, I crave a piping hot, comforting soup almost daily.

This creamy, mushroom-based cannellini bean and spinach soup is a great accompaniment to any meal but is hearty enough to stand alone as a main dish. It's thick, creamy, and satisfying—not to mention, it comes with added health perks! Mushrooms are one of the few natural plant-based sources of dietary vitamin D, which is especially crucial during the seasons when we get less sun. Baby bella mushrooms are also a great source of potassium and phosphorus, among other important nutrients. This soup is a great immune booster to help stave off colds and other viruses in the winter and year-round.
