Another Oyster Mushroom Chowder

We had some leftover oyster mushrooms from our farm, but needed to supplement with other mushrooms for this shroom-packed recipe.


  • 2 heaping cups of various types of diced mushrooms (we used mostly oyster, trumpeter, and cremini)
  • olive oil
  • 1 chopped yellow onion
  • 1 cup diced celery
  • 1 bag of mini yellow potatoes, choppedIMG_7654 IMG_7655
  • 6 cups veggie broth
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne
  • 1.5 cups almond milk
  • 2 TBsp cornstarch mixed with 1/4 cup water
  • 1 TBsp kelp flakes
  • 1/2 tsp celery salt
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/4 tsp ground mustard seed
  • pinch cinnamon

Start by making the soup: cook the celery and onions n a little olive oil, then add the potatoes, stock, thyme, salt, and cayenne and bring to a boil. Then partially cover and simmer for 20-30 minutes until the potatoes are soft.

To make the mushrooms I fried in some olive oil, and then added in the celery salt, pepper, paprika, mustard, and cinnamon. Then at the last minute added the kelp flakes. I then stirred these in to the soup.
