Mushroom & Wild Rice Soup

Mushroom & Wild Rice Soup

This is the perfect soup for bridging the gap between winter and spring, when fresh mushrooms and other market fare are calling but the temperatures are still hovering above forty. 

Ingredients

2 1/2 cup              water
3pcs                      dried porcini mushrooms
3pcs                      shiitake mushrooms
2 tbsp                   butter
1                           chopped onion
1/4 cup               fresh mushroom
1 cup                   sliced baby portobello mushrooms
3 minced            garlic
4 cups                  vegetable stock
½ cup                 long grain and wild rice mix
½ tsp                  salt
1/4                      white pepper
½ cup                 water
4 tsp                  cornstarch
1 cup                 whipping cream

METHOD:
In a small saucepan, bring water to a boil; add dried mushrooms. Remove from heat; let stand 25-30 minutes or until softened.

Using a slotted spoon, remove mushrooms; rinse. Trim and discard stems from shiitake mushrooms. Chop mushrooms. Strain soaking liquid through a fine-mesh strainer. Reserve mushrooms and soaking liquid.

In a Dutch oven, heat butter over medium-high heat. Add onion; cook and stir until tender. Add fresh and baby portobello mushrooms; cook and stir until tender. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer.

Stir in broth, rice mix with contents of seasoning packet, reserved dried mushrooms and soaking liquid, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, covered, 20-25 minutes or until rice is tender.

In a small bowl, mix water and corn-starch until smooth; stir into soup. Bring to a boil; cook and stir 2 minutes or until thickened. Stir in cream; heat through.


SOME TIPS TO MAKE IT MORE DELISH:


  • Add some crushed black pepper and dried thyme herb

  • To make it vegetarian you can add carrot julienne cut or finely chopped and parsley.

  • You can also use coconut milk instead of heavy cream

  • You can also add crushed walnut to enhance the taste. I always add because i love walnut in it.

  1. Yummy, this sounds absolutely delicious! I love soups but my fiance can’t stand them! Whenever I’m making soup I have to cook another dish for him, he would rather order it than have to eat soup haha.

    Can I substitute porcini mushrooms with champignon mushrooms? I’ve bought some lovely ones at the local market yesterday to make oven-stuffed mushrooms but I’ve bought way too many, as always. Also, how long will it last in the fridge? Thanks in advance, Xeing!
