Chop the onions, garlic, and mushrooms. To save a step, buy the mushrooms pre-sliced.
Add oil, onion, garlic, and mushrooms to a large pot over medium heat. Cook for 8 – 10 minutes until the mushrooms start to release their juices.
Add the rest of the ingredients and stir to combine. Bring the soup to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 15 minutes.
Scoop a few cups of soup into a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth, then pour back into the soup. This makes the soup extra creamy.
Garnish with fresh thyme sprigs and coconut milk to serve.
This recipe is for 4 servings of soup.I recommend buying pre-sliced mushrooms to make prep as easy as possible.Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3-5 days. I do not recommend freezing as it will make the mushrooms lose their texture.Any extra soup can also be used in place of chicken or vegetable stock in other recipes to add creaminess and flavor.
