Rich creamy soup packed with rice, and vegetable goodness in each spoonful.
The sautéed carrots, celery, onion and garlic in butter and a depth of flavor that helps to enhance the fresh mushrooms as they blend into the soup base.
By adding the half and half, or milk, this give a nice creamy richness to the soup, I like to stick with the half and half just for this reason, to give a nice cream to the flavor.
You can use either a long grain wild rice, or a wild rice blend. I sometimes like to use the premade, wild rice/brown rice blend to save time. It’s easy to add in, and the rice is perfect, which give the soup a great texture .
