Can you imagine yourself sitting on a sofa, watching tv while eating from a bowl on a chilly night? This Creamy Wild Rice Veggie Soup is the perfect recipe for that.

The wild rice makes this soup hearty and filling, especially when it’s winter, you’re feeling cold and craving a warm, comforting meal. Plus, compared to other types of rice, it’s higher in protein and lower in calories. Fun fact: though it’s similar to other rice’s texture and cooking methods, it’s not classified as a type of rice but a grain.

We know cooking wild rice takes longer, so we suggest cooking this soup using an InstantPot. Whether you’re using black wild rice or mixed ones doesn’t really matter. You can also make it ahead of time. This recipe is actually suitable for maximizing leftovers. If you eat meat and have leftover chicken, for example, you can add it to this soup.

The creamy wild rice veggie soup recipe is uncomplicated and doesn’t have to be followed strictly. You can make do with vegetables you have at home. It’s a creamy soup, but you can opt to make it broth-based instead. Since this is a vegan soup, we like to use coconut milk for that creamy consistency. The sweetness of coconut also blends well with the umami flavors of the vegetables.

  • 4 tbsp asian cabbage or Chinese leaf cabbage
  • 1 tbsp olive oil or rapeseed oil
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • 2 tsp sweet paprika

  • 1 tbsp Marigold Swiss vegetable bouillon powder or other stock*
  • 120 g wild rice or wild rice mix

Instructions

  • To make the wild rice vegetable soup first prepare the vegetables by chopping into bite-size pieces.
  • Add the oil to a large saucepan and heat to a low-medium temperature. Add the vegetables to the pan (with the exception of the cabbage if using) and cook for 4-5 minutes, stirring often to avoid sticking. Add the dried herbs and paprika. Stir to combine.
  • Prepare the stock with water and the bouillon powder.
