Winter comfort food, based on a recipe from Alex Jamieson’s The Great American Detox Diet. After making this many times, I have modified it to add a little bit of spice, a lot more mushrooms, and some soy milk.
- 3 tablespoons olive oil (divided)
- 1 large yellow onion, chopped
- 2 garlic cloves , chopped
- 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (more or less to taste)
- 3 cups vegetable broth
- 3 cups potatoes , peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes ( I recommend Yukon Gold)
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
- 1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
- 1 (10 ounce) package frozen corn (I recommend the roasted kind for extra flavor)
- 3 cups unsweetened soy milk (in this instance it is important to use the unsweetened kind)
- 1 (16 ounce) package fresh mushrooms , thinly sliced (baby portabella or button)
- 2 tablespoons fresh parsley
- Saute the onions, garlic, and crushed red pepper in 2 tablespoons of oil a large stock pot.
Add veggie broth, potatoes, salt and pepper. Cover and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer, and cook for 10 minutes, or until potatoes are tender.
Meanwhile, heat remaining tablespoon of oil in a skillet. Saute mushrooms.
Add the corn and soy milk to the pot with the potatoes. Do not boil after adding the soy milk, or it will separate. Cook for another 5 minutes. Add mushrooms and parsley.
