This mushroom and rice soup is the best soup I’ve made all year! Or possible it is tied with this Tuscan bean soup that’s been on repeat since January. Who says you can have only one favourite, ha! Anyways, this soup is deliciously creamy with such a deep savoury flavour which is everything I want this time of year. also it has one of my favourite autumn and winter ingredients: mushrooms. I think you might have noticed by now that mushrooms make my heart sing!

I also cook rice into the soup which is a lovely way of adding more body to a soup and making it more satiating. In this case I used a wild rice blend which had brown rice, red rice, black rice and of course wild rice but you could use any single one of these in it’s place. The soup will come out just as good!

Another thing that really adds to the pizzazz of this soup are the vegan “chicken” stoick cubes. I can’t get a hold of them easily here in Sweden but if you are in a country where this is easy to find I wholeheartedly recommend using them! But if you can’t find them the soup tastes great using vegetable stock powders or cubes too. Use your favourite vegan stock cube and be merry. I hope you will enjoy this soup as much as I do and that it will warm you up if you, like me, are in the coldest part of the year!
