Meatless Monday: Avocado Cream of Mushroom Soup

By: Jamie Webber

I love avocados more than anything. I eat a whole one every day (not in one sitting but throughout the day an entire avocado is definitely consumed). I use them to make creamy sauces, indulgent raw chocolate mousse, and always in salads. I even use it in homemade “do-it-yourself” face masks to give my skin a refreshing and vibrant glow.
Consuming one every day may even be the reason I rarely get sick. An avocado a day might help keep the doctor away…

In just one avocado your body fills up on vitamins A, C, E, K, B6, high amounts of potassium and of course that “healthy” fat. It also helps improve the absorption of nutrients, reduces signs of aging and regulates your blood sugar.

I had never tried avocado in my homemade soups until now. Using the avocado as this soup’s base made it so rich, creamy, satisfying and delicious. Who needs Cream of Mushroom Soup with heavy white cream and butter when you can have this vegan delight instead?
