Cure the winter blues with this tasty vegan Hungarian mushroom soup recipe! Being half Hungarian I grew up eating a lot of paprika and dill, so I find these flavors extremely comforting. Dill and paprika go so well with one of my favorite veggies, mushrooms! All that umami with herbaceous notes and spice is a dream come true!
Unfortunately, a lot of Hungarian food has meat/sour cream/general dairy in it and since I don’t cook with dairy, I wanted to veganize this classic, cozy dish.
See below for my veganized Hungarian Mushroom soup recipe with plenty of flavor to get you through the day!
- If you are not used to spicy food, I would just start out with 1 tsp of paprika, since I am numb to it at this point, I am pretty generous with my paprika use.

Tasty Vegan Hungarian Mushroom Soup
- 2 tbsp soy butter
- 2 lbs mushrooms (cremini or baby bella, sliced)
- 1 golden onion (diced)
- 1-2 tbsp garlic (minced - I love garlic so I use 2 tbsp (about 3-4 cloves))
- 1 tbsp smoked paprika
- 2 tbsp Hungarian Paprika (super important to have good paprika)
- 1 tbsp rosemary (chopped)
- 1.5 tbsp dijon mustard
- 1/2-3/4 cup white wine (I like acidity but you may want to be more conservative. Choose a dry one.)
- 1 tbsp soy sauce/Tamari
- 4 cups vegetable broth
- 1 can coconut milk (full fat)
- 4 tbsp corn starch (mixed with water to get the paste)
- 1 tbsp paprika cream (optional and vegan)
- salt/pepper (to taste)
- 1 handful dill (chopped)
- 2 stalks green onions (chopped)
- Then add your optional paprika cream, half of your dill, and season with salt/pepper. Simmer for 3 minutes till all of the flavors have come together.
- Garnish with the rest of your dill, top with green onions and serve with some toasted bread. This is even more delicious the next day once the flavors have had time to settle.
- Having high quality paprika is important! Hungarian paprika from Bende and Smoked Spanish Paprika from Penzey’s are the best in my opinion.
- Paprika cream is like a paprika/red pepper version of tomato paste. You can find it here.
