How to cook wild rice
This will usually depend on your manufacturer and package directions. But what if I told you just to ditch those instructions. We’re doing all in one pot in the main recipe.
Otherwise the method in general is: you need 3 cups water and one cup wild rice. Bring them to boil in a large sauce pan. Reduce to a lower temperature.
Now cook it for around 45 minutes until done. But as I said before you don’t need this step in this Wild Rice and Mushroom Soup.
How to prepare mushrooms
Wash your mushrooms thoroughly with water. This step is required to remove dust and dirt.
Note: If your mushrooms are really earthy and dirty, you may place them in a large bowl of water to get rid of all the impurities.
Now trim the stems and chop them.
These are steps that you should always do when using mushrooms in your dishes.
How to make Wild Rice and Mushroom Soup
First wash your rice, set aside. Now heat a large pot with a bit of oil or vegetable broth, if you prefer cooking oil free.
Add garlic and onions. Fry for around 3 minutes, then add mushrooms and fry for 2 minutes longer.
It’s time to add the wild rice blend, vegan cream cheese, vegetable broth, and the optional coconut milk, nutritional yeast and white wine, if you use them.
Let all cook for around 20 minutes on low heat. Watch from time to time and stir if needed.
Last and finally serve on plates or in bowls.
This soup makes an amazing dinner, lunch, work lunch, meal prep and is also really perfect for the holidays and even Christmas.
Also it can be a lovely appetizer to begin every meal. Mouthwatering and rich as it should be.
It’s of course a keeper for date night, yes indeed so truly satisfying and super creamy.
Thanks to the vegan cream cheese and optional coconut milk which takes it to another whole level.
Plus if you use the optional white wine, you have some extra wine for serving which compliments this Wild Rice and Mushroom Soup so well.
