Creamy Vegan Mushroom Soup with Mediterranean Almond and Saffron Flavors

So, what do you say if you organize a surprise for your loved ones this weekend and prepare soup for them at lunch, but not a simple one but a delicious combination of mushrooms and onions, ennobled with Mediterranean aromas of almonds and saffron?

“Like mushrooms after the rain” – this is how the benefits of a hot mushroom soup eaten with loved ones appear when it is cold outside. Mushrooms are rich in water, have about 90% water so they are low in calories and suitable for those who are on a diet. These vegetables are a valuable source of protein and fiber, they are generally affordable.

Also, mushrooms are valuable for the content of selenium, potassium, copper, iron, and phosphorus but also for B vitamins, vitamin B1, (B2), (B3), (B6), and folic acid.

Lately, more and more research shows that mushrooms could easily fall into the category of superfoods, along with broccoli and blueberries. Their main benefits are to reduce the risk of heart disease and cancer.

Ingredients:

• 200 g of fresh mushrooms

For the “special” ingredient we need:
