How to prepare wild rice
We use a wild rice blend. That means it cooks fast and is done in 20 minutes. You don’t even have to make the rice separately. We prepare everything in one pot.
If you prefer a plain wild rice, it will take quite a bit longer than with the wild rice blend. You can calculate a total time of 50 minutes, so you will need the double time.
For me I like both a wild rice blend and regular wild rice, but I have to admit I prefer the blend, because it’s simply done in half the time.
How to make wild rice soup
Traditional wild rice soup is often made with chicken, butter, and cream. Obviously not plant based.
We do something different and add a lot of veggies in place of meat:
like peas, carrots and so on which adds a lot of texture.
How to make cream soup with vegan ingredients
For sure one can use cashew or other nuts for creaminess. Blended with water or vegetable broth, you get the dairy free cream you want and like.
For this Cream of Wild Rice Soup I keep it really simple. You don’t even need a food processor or blender.
It’s all made in one pot, that’s everything you need, no other equipment or gadgets are required. So I’m pretty sure you absolutely admire the easy and straightforward beauty of this vegetable soup.
For the creaminess I used vegan cream cheese and optional coconut milk, which takes it to another level.
I find the combination of both amazing. If you are really into a rich and creamy flavor, that’s surely the way to go.
