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!

I couldn’t hold the camera still. I wanted a spoonful of mushroom and wild rice soup asap!

    We never had meatless meals when I was growing up either. My family is total meat eaters and wouldn’t dream of having a meal without it. However, I sometimes make meatless meals and my husband doesn’t mind. I’ll be adding this soup to our line-up.

  36. Stacy says:

    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.

    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.

  44. Oh, I had the same experience growing up. There was meat at EVERY meal, and it was delicious. Even when my mom made something called “vegetable soup,” it had short ribs in it! haha. But, soup is one of those things that I am totally cool with being vegetarian, and THIS soup especially looks so good!
