Strain using a nut milk bag and discard the pulp or not if you want a thick creamy soup.

To serve:
Divide toppings among 4 bowls. If desired, gently warm broth on stove while stirring constantly and pour over veggies.  But this soup is totally good served cold. Top with cilantro leaves, the sliced mushrooms, etc..
