  • 2 lbs baby potatoes or use 4-5 white potatoes

  • 1 can of cannellini or white beans

  • 1 large white onion

  • 7-8 fresh garlic cloves (finely minced)

  • 1/2 lbs of cremini mushrooms

  • 1/4 cup finely chopped chives

  • 1/3 cup nutritional yeast

  • 1.5 tsp dried thyem

  • 1.5-2 tsp Umami mushrooms seasoning (+/-)

  • 1/2 tsp chili flakes

  • Juice of half a lime or lemon

  • 1 tbsp better than bouillon (vegetable base)

  • 1 tsp garlic powder

  • 3-4 cups water (+/- per consistency)


  • Thinly chop white onion and toss in a sauce pan on a low heat. Cover the lid and sauté onion for about 10 minutes.
  • While onions are sautéing, boil potatoes till soft. Drain and keep aside.
  • Rinse beans under cold water and keep aside. Finely chop all mushrooms, chives, garlic and keep aside.
  • After 10 minutes, add garlic to sautéed onion and use 1-2 tbsp of water to deglaze pan (or can use light cooking spray if you wish) and sauté for about 2 minutes. Add Thyme, chili flakes and umami mushrooms seasoning. Toss mushrooms, give it a good mix and cook for about 10 minutes.
  • While mushrooms are cooking, prep your sauce in a high speed blender by tossing beans, about 7-8 baby potatoes, better than bouillon, garlic powder, salt, about 1/2 cup – 1 cup hot boiled water and lime juice. Blend till smooth and keep aside.
  • Chop boiled potatoes in small pieces and keep aside. After 10 minutes, you’ll notice mushrooms have released water, feel free to increase heat to medium and cook for additional 2 minutes till some of the liquid evaporates. After 2 minutes, add chopped potatoes, pour the soup, add about 2-3 cups of boiled hot water and mix. Let soup simmer on low/medium heat for about 5-7 minutes. Make sure to stir occasionally.
  • Once done, add chopped chives, mix, add some fresh ground black pepper and serve with a whole grain toast or by itself.

  • *If you don’t like mushrooms, check my creamy potato soup without mushrooms under soups/salads.
  • To keep it low calorie – I didn’t add any coconut milk, butters, oils or cashew cream.
