Portuguese Sea Vegetable Soup

Since onion has been added to the no-no list, I've been exploring more recipes with fennel. Since I felt awful yesterday, soup made sense. I made a decent amount of changes, but I think the only change that adjusted the flavor was the addition of the Baklouti Green Chili Olive Oil, which added a decent amount of heat.

This is an instant favorite. When I make it again, I think I'll try making it with some coconut milk at the end to make it a real chowder.

Portuguese Sea Vegetable Soup

Source: Piquant Post | Serves: 4 | Time: 45 min

Changes: used infused EVO; skipped red onion and doubled fennel; replaced oyster mushrooms with shiitakes (the store was out of oyster mushrooms); left out some optional ingreients; made my own Portuguese spice blend; used Beyond Meat breakfast sausages instead of one regular vegan sausage.

2 stalks celery, sliced

2 cloves garlic, minced

6 oz shiitake #mushrooms, sliced

1 tbsp sweet paprika

1/4 tsp chile powder

1/4 tsp ground cumin

1/4 tsp ground cinnamon

1/4 tsp freshly grated nutmeg

1/4 tsp ground allspice

2 bay leaves

1 quart vegetable stock (homemade to reduce sodium

1 14 oz can crushed tomato, in juice (no salt added varietal to reduce sodium)

4 Beyond Meat breakfast sausages, cut into bite sized pieces

1 Idaho potato, peeled and cut into pieces


In a large stock pot, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the fennel, celery, garlic, and mushrooms. Cook ~10 mins until the vegetables are soft and fragrant.
