Wild Rice Mushroom Soup

This is a lovely vegetarian soup. It feels hearty and filling, all thanks to the mushrooms and wild rice. I’m a big fan of making a big pot of soup for lunches throughout the week. You can bring a to-go bowl with you to work, or reheat it at home on the stove. It’s a wonderful way to eat healthy mid-day.

You can serve this soup with crackers, croutons or a slice of warm bread. Or eat on its own, which is what I like to do most days.

Wild Rice Mushroom Soup Ingredients

Here’s what you’ll need to make this delicious soup:

  • Wild Rice – This recipe uses ¾ cup of uncooked wild rice.
  • Mushrooms – You’ll need 4 cups of sliced mushrooms. You can use brown or white mushrooms. I used brown mushrooms.
  • Onion and Garlic – 1 yellow onion and 2 garlic cloves are used.
  • Spices – This recipe uses dried thyme, dried parsley, sea salt and ground pepper.
  • Coconut Milk – 1 cup of coconut milk is used to make the soup creamy. You could also use heavy cream.
  • Vegetable Broth – You’ll need 3 ½ cups of vegetable broth or water.

Wild Rice Mushroom Soup Tips and Tricks

  • This soup is thick and creamy. The rice will absorb a lot of the liquid. If you want it to be a bit runnier, just add more broth to the recipe.
  • This recipe will make about four small servings or two large servings – feel free to double the recipe if needed.
  • You can buy pre-sliced mushrooms to help save time.
  • You could use brown or white rice as an alternative to wild rice. Keep an eye on the rice as it will cook differently than wild rice which tends to take longer.
  • If you don’t have vegetable broth, you can use chicken broth in replacement.
  • You can store leftovers in the fridge in an airtight container.
  • This soup can be reheated in a pot on the stove or in the microwave.
