Creamy Vegan Mushroom Soup

Sometimes food is about memories, and this Creamy Mushroom Soup brings up so many nice ones for me. Once upon a time I used to work in a hotel and one of the restaurants was all the way on top of the building, on the 13th floor, you can imagine the view was breathtaking. Having lunch there every day was a delight, but let me tell you, when Mushroom Soup was on the menu, it was way more than that! So to celebrate those times, I made my own version of that dish, not as perfect as that specific one, but pretty close I must say. I wanted to keep it vegan, simple and still get that rich, buttery taste that got imprinted in my memory. So I used a combination of chestnut mushrooms, regular champignons and oyster mushrooms, drowned them all in coconut milk and garnished with basil oil and thyme (from my garden!). In the honor of the good old times, I raise another bowl of soup! Cheers!
