Cream of mushroom soup is generally vegetarian unless lard or bacon grease is used for the roux—which is much more common in homemade soup.

Specifically, it's suitable for lacto and lacto-ovo vegetarians, the subgroup of vegetarians that allows for dairy.

For a healthy heart you need to have low fat milk and not full fat milk.

Some good cooked vegetables also go along well with cream of mushroom soup.

Cooked vegetables can still be light, like garlicky roasted broccoli or green beans with harissa.

You can even go for roasted potatoes, though they're a little heavier.

Regardless of what you pick as a side, mushroom soup can always add some delicious warmth to a meal.
