This Mushroom & Wild Rice Soup is loaded with veggies and can be served as a side dish or as a meal. I used big chunks of mushrooms in this soup recipe along with wild rice, carrots, celery, onion, kale, and herbs for a flavorful vegan soup.

This soup recipe can be made with leftover rice, which makes it an easy recipe to throw together with ingredients you probably already have in your fridge! If you want to add more protein to this soup and are not vegan, then you can make this with Kettle & Fire Bone Broth instead of vegetable stock. Use code MIMIBAKESCOOKIES for 20% off your order.

Ingredients & Health Benefits

Mushrooms: Organic mushrooms have vitamins like B and D, as well as antioxidants. I use baby Bellas in this recipe.

Wild Rice: Organic wild rice is a great healthy carb, it also has fiber and protein.

Carrots: I love using organic carrots in soup as they are a hearty vegetable that holds up well. They also have lots of vitamin A.

White Onion: I use organic white onion for flavor. Onions have lots of antioxidants!

Kale: Organic kale is a cruciferous veggie that's great for gut health. It's best lightly cooked such as in this soup!

Celery: Adding organic celery to soup gives it great texture! Celery is anti-inflammatory and it helps regular blood pressure.

Spices: I use a mix of organic dried thyme, rosemary, sage, celery salt, pepper, and salt.

Step by Step Instructions

Step 1

Make sure the rice is cooked first, if you have to do that, then start that first. Otherwise you can use leftover rice as well.

Step 2

In a 4-quart pot, add the vegetable stock, water, sea salt, black pepper, thyme, rosemary, sage, celery salt, and garlic. Stir to combine completely.

Step 3

Add the mushrooms, carrots, celery, and onions, and bring to a boil. Once boiling, turn to medium heat and simmer for about 15 to 20 minutes, or until the veggies are done to your liking. I like mine a little more al dente than really soft, so you can cook a little longer if you'd like.

Step 4

Add the cooked rice and kale and stir to combine completely. Cook for another couple minutes to warm the rice and kale. Remove from heat, serve immediately.
