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.
Add other greens like spinach or kale. You can also incorporate beans which will be good for the liver. We love to use mushrooms for their fleshy texture and adaptable flavor.
You can’t mess up when making this vegan, gluten-free meal. It’s effortlessly healthy and delicious. The creamy wild rice veggie soup is grounding; you’ll find solace in your homes.
