Roasted Garlic Cream of Mushroom Soup {Dairy-Free}

Roasted Garlic Cream of Mushroom Soup {Dairy-Free}

I dream of sipping warm sumptuous soup in the long winter months. It’s so soothing and extremely good for you.  I was recently reading an article (well, more like 4 or 5) and apparently “souping” is a thing. Like the “juicing” craze that happened a few […]

I hope all of you had a fantastic weekend!  The family and I went out camping this past weekend to enjoy the weather and each other’s company.  It’s so awesome having a campground within 15 minutes from our house.  Not only is it convenient, but we were able to have friends and some additional family come hang out on Saturday for a bonfire and chit chat.  It was such a relaxing weekend.

Now for the goodies! My garden is still giving me a good weekly meal of green beans so I decided what better to pair them with than shitake mushrooms! I used to have MAJOR texture issues with biting into mushrooms (and I still can’t fathom biting into a large portabella cap) but smaller fried varieties I’ve come to appreciate and can handle their texture. Maybe because I just love how darn good they taste.

Shitake Green Beans start with sautéing the shitakes in either olive oil or if you want to increase their flavor profile, try sautéing in sesame oil.  Yum!

Sauté these guys at least until they give up their extra moisture.  I like them best when they just start to crisp a little.  While that’s happening, boil some water and give the beans a quick bath until they are tender crisp.  Then you simply toss them all together with the rest of the ingredients. Simple. Delicious. Shitake Green Beans…
