  • 4 Tbsp vegan butter or ghee, if not vegan
  • 1.5 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp salt to taste
  • 6 Tbsp gluten free flour
  • 1.5 cups vegetable broth or chicken broth, if not vegan
  • 1 cup unsweetened non-dairy milk


  1. Melt the vegan butter with the spices (onion powder, salt, pepper).

  2. Make the "roux", constantly stirring the gluten free flour (I used this kind) until it starts to bubble and resembles a thick paste (2-5 minutes) and is a light tan color, resembling the texture of wet sand.

  3. Pour in the vegetable broth and whisk until you have a smooth, thick sauce, stirring constantly.

  4. Slowly pour in the non-dairy milk (I used unsweetened almond milk) and whisk it all together.

  5. Bring to a simmer, and stir until the cream of vegan soup thickens, about 10-12 minutes.

  6. Enjoy in your favorite dishes in place of cream of chicken or cream of mushroom. Store covered in refrigerator.
