Wild Rice Soup
This warm and creamy wild rice soup caught my attention the second I scrolled by it! There are so many delicious flavours and nutritious ingredients.
- 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
- ⅓ cup raw cashews
- ¼ cup cooked cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
- 2 tablespoons white miso paste
- 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
- 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
- 1 bunch scallions, white and light green parts, chopped
- 1 celery stalk, chopped
- 1 large carrot, chopped
- 8 ounces cremini mushrooms, sliced
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
- 4 garlic cloves, minced
- 2 tablespoons minced rosemary
- 1 bunch of thyme, bundled
- 1¼ cups cooked cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
- ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, more for serving
- 4 cups water
- 1 cup cooked wild rice
- 1 to 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
- 4 cups chopped kale
- Chopped parsley for garnish, optional
- Pinches of red pepper flakes, optional
- Make the creamy base: Place the almond milk, cashews, white beans, miso paste, and Dijon mustard in a blender and process until smooth. Set aside.
- Make the soup: Heat the olive oil in a medium-large Dutch oven or large pot over medium heat. Add the scallions, celery, carrot, mushrooms, and salt and stir. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the mushrooms are tender, 8 to 10 minutes.
- Add the garlic, rosemary, thyme, cannellini beans, pepper, and water and stir. Cover and simmer for 20 minutes.
- Remove the thyme bundle and stir in the cashew mixture, rice, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, and kale. Simmer over low heat until the kale is wilted, about 5 minutes. Season to taste and serve with more lemon juice, parsley and pinches of red pepper flakes, if desired.
Note: If you’re not serving the soup right away, it’ll thicken as it sits. If desired, stir in up to 1 cup additional water if it gets too thick.
