Serves: 4-5

Time: 10 mins prep and 30 mins cooking


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • 1 teaspoons dried thyme
  • 2 tbsp tamari 
  • 500g cremini or white mushroom, sliced
  • 250g brown mushrooms, sliced
  • ½ cup vegan dry white wine (optional)
  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 can of coconut milk (full-fat) 
  • Salt & pepper, to taste


  1. Add the olive oil to a pot with the onion and garlic, dried oregano, thyme and basil and sauté briefly.
  2. Then add the sliced mushrooms and the tamari and cover the pot. Cook on medium high, for around 10 minutes. This will allow the mushrooms to release their water.
  3. Add the wine, vegetable broth and cook on low heat for about 5 minutes.
  4. Add coconut milk and cook for a final 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, allowing the flavors to blend properly.
  5. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Garnish with a pinch of dried herbs and serve.
