I felt like a chef in Chopped this week, as I was challenged to use mushrooms, rice, and turnips. So I made a Vegan Mushroom Wild Rice Soup and wow! - talk about hearty!


  • 2 cups onion, diced
  • 2 cups celery, diced 
  • 2 cups carrots, diced 
  • 2 turnips, diced
  • 4-5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 8 oz baby bella Mushrooms
  • 1 oz dried porcini mushrooms (optional)
  • 1 oz dried chanterelle mushrooms (optional)
  • 1 cup wild rice
  • 1 tsp poultry seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme
  • 4 cups low sodium vegetable broth
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice

Optional ingredients after the soup is done

  • 1 1/2 cups unsweetened Almond Milk  (and/or)
  • 3/4 cup dried potato flakes (and or)
  • 3/4 cup Fat-Free Vegan Gravy


  1. Dice onion, carrots, celery, and turnips into equal size pieces and add to a large soup pot
  2. Add a splash of water or veg broth to saute - just until softened
  3. Add the minced garlic and stir until fragrant - about 30 seconds
  4. Add the fresh, sliced mushrooms and simmer until softened and liquid is released
  5. Add the seasoning and stir
  6. Add the wild rice and broth and stir to combine
  7. Add the dried mushrooms if using
  8. Bring just to a boil and then turn down the heat, cover, and let simmer 45 minutes.
  9. Stir in lemon juice and add salt & pepper to taste
  10. For a creamier soup, you can add the optional almond milk
  11. For a thicker stew, you can add the potato flakes and/or the gravy
