Warm up a rainy day…

Mushroom & Wild Rice Soup

When it’s damp and chilly, I feel like a bowl of warm healthy soup! This does the job, woodsy flavour of mushrooms with the nutty taste of wild rice… yum.

Mushroom & Wild Rice Soup
  • 1/4 cup wild rice
  • 4 tsp salt
  • 1-1/2 cups water
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 cup button mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 cup shitake mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 cup baby cremini mushrooms, sliced
  • 1/2 cup shallots, finely chopped
  • 1 stalk celery, finely chopped
  • 2 Tbsp garlic, minced
  • 1/3 cup sherry
  • 2 Tbsp flour
  • 3-1/2 cups beef stock
  • 1 Tbsp thyme
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup half & half cream
  1. Place wild rice, salt and cold water and bring to boil. Reduce and simmer for 50 minutes until soft. Drain.
  2. Melt 2 Tbsps of butter in a large pot and sauté mushrooms until soft and golden. Season with salt and pepper. Remove and set aside.
  3. Add shallots, celery and garlic, cook until soft.
  4. Add sherry to deglaze the pan. Add flour and stir to cook for 1 minute.
  5. Add stock, whisking to prevent lumps. Simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  6. Add thyme, nutmeg, reserved mushrooms, wild rice and cream. Season to taste. Heat through and serve.

    Hi, I just found this website today and also this recipe too. I have failed to see the half and half cream mentioned in the directions on how you make this delicious sounding soup or am I wrong?? just wondering. Maybe I skipped over it. Can you please help out with this??
