This vegan corn and mushroom bisque is amazing! Now, I’ll be the first to tell you there’s no vegan substitute for crab meat but my friends at hungry planet has done a damn good job at getting close. Until their product is available in local retailers, we’ll just use mushrooms.

Corn & Mushroom Bisque

Corn & Mushroom Bisque Cooking tips:

To get a velvet smooth bisque that you would find from heavy cream, I chose to use cashew cream. Make sure that you put some color on your vegetables, it brings out the natural sweetness and will provide depth of flavor. Make sure to scrape the corn pulp with the back of your knife to get the sweet corn milk.

To make 1 cup of cashew cream. Soak 1 cup of cashews in 1  1/4 cup water for 2 hours-24 hours. Add to food blender and blitz on high until smooth.

Can you make ahead?

Freezer: After the bisque cools, transfer to an airtight container. Keep in freezer for 3 months max.

Fridge: After the bisque cools, transfer to an airtight container. Keep in fridge for 7 days max.

Reheating: Turn on heat to medium, in a small or medium sauce pan, add bisque, cook until mixture starts to boil. About 10 minutes or less.

Substitution Options:

10 oz. frozen corn is a good substitute if you cannot find fresh corn.

If you do not make your own cashew cream, use a plant based milk.

Try using a different mix of mushrooms to great a unique flavor.
