In just 30 minutes, you will have the most amazing, most flavorful vegan chicken broth made with onions, celery, and king oyster mushrooms!
I make a lot of soups and the foundation of any good soup is the broth.
It was so good I had to make it a separate post as it will make a great based for some vegan chicken soup.
Vegan Chicken Broth Key Ingredients
Not Chicken Broth Base: This is a must! The flavor is so realistic to chicken broth it almost makes you think you are eating chicken broth!
King Oyster Mushrooms: You know how much I love oyster mushrooms on this blog! Oyster mushrooms are a great natural substitution for chicken.
Celery and Onions: One of the base vegetables needed for any good flavorful broth!
Spices: Basic spices like garlic powder, onion powder, and poultry seasoning will add the finishing touches to this broth.
How to Make "Chicken" Vegan Mushroom Broth
*Please read detailed and printable recipe card below for full ingredients and instructions.
SUBSTITUTION, COOK, & STORAGE TIPS
- If you don't have king oyster mushrooms available to you, feel free to use any mushrooms you have on hand hand
- You really can make this broth your own by using any vegetable scraps of your choice. I kept it basic in this recipe but feel free to make this recipe your own!
- This recipe will in the refrigerator for up to 7 days in an air tight jar (like a mason jar). You can freeze it for up to 3 months. I like to freeze my broth in ice cubes with these silicone ice trays. Then I vacuum seal them that way they are portioned out and preserved for a lot longer.

Vegan "Chicken" Broth (with King Oyster Mushrooms)
- 4 medium celery stalks
- 1 small onion
- 1 large king oyster mushroom note 1
- 10 cups water
- 3 tablespoons Not Chicken Broth Base
- 2 teaspoons garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
- Rinse celery and onion. On a cutting board, chop your celery into fine pieces. Roughly chop your onion into medium pieces. Transfer into a bowl and set aside.
- Next, clean mushroom with a damp paper towel. On that same cutting board, begin to cut off the bottom ends of the king oyster mushroom and discard as that part is very tough. Cut off the tops and chop them up. You will want to keep this part as it's very tender.
- Cut your mushroom in half length wise down the middle. With your hands, begin to tear your mushroom into a shredded like texture. Then take your knife and cut those pieces in half. Add shredded mushroom to your mixing bowl along with the rest of your vegetables.
- To your Dutch oven or Stock Pot, add in your water and Not Chicken Broth Base. Stir in the broth base until the liquid is well combined with the water. Next add in garlic powder, onion powder, poultry seasoning, chopped onions, celery, and king oyster mushrooms. Mix together.
- Turn stove on high heat. Cover and bring to a boil. Once it has boil, turn down to a low medium heat and simmer uncovered for 30 minutes.
- Once done, allow broth to cool for 5 minutes. Then place a deep colander over a large mixing bowl and drain broth leaving behind the cooked vegetables. The left over vegetables are very tender (especially the mushrooms!) so keep them to be added to soups and/or to use in my vegan cornbread dressing!
- Store this broth or use it in whatever recipe that calls for broth! It is so good you will love it!
