Mushroom and Wild Rice Soup #SundaySupper

Welcome to this week’s Sunday Supper Meatless Meals Event! I make a lot of meatless meals year round just just because we like them. Cutting back on meat was something I wasn’t use to growing up. We had to have meat with every meal. It wasn’t dinner without a beef roast, fried chicken, pork chops or sausage on the plate. Once in a while we’d get those frozen cod or halibut planks too.
Except for potato soup, (which often had leftover ham or bacon)I don’t recall any real meatless meals.
As an adult I eat what I want for the most part. I still enjoy those beef roasts with gravy and a breaded pork chop once in a while. But for today I’m sticking with Mushroom and Wild Rice Soup.
I used hearty portabellas, wild rice, a quick cook rice blend of white, red and brown rice, greens and vegetable broth.
Those simmering mushrooms are calling my name!

  23. I always find that mushrooms, especially those portabellas, add a very meaty flavor to any dish. I often cut back on the meat, like when making stroganoff, and add way more mushrooms. No one even misses the meat!

    Your soup looks wonderful and warming, Cindy. I’d love a big bowl, please.

  25. This looks like such a great simple meal idea for a week night. I pretty much keep mushrooms in stock at all times so this would be easy to throw together.
