Minnesota Wild Rice Soup {Gluten-Free, Vegan}

Minnesota Wild Rice Soup {Gluten-Free, Vegan}

Fall is officially here, and that means it’s soup and stew season. This Minnesota Wild Rice and Mushroom Soup is the perfect soup to cozy up to any time of year but even better this time of year. This creamy and hearty soup is a delicious and comforting meal for those cold days when you just want to snuggle into a blanket and read your favorite book.

This simple wild rice soup is gluten-free, vegan, and full of nutrients. Most wild rice soups are made with condensed milk to give the soup a creamy texture. In order to make my wild rice soup dairy-free, I used Wildly Organic Coconut Milk Powder which gives this soup a great flavor and a creamy consistency.

Tips to make the Best Vegan Wild Rice & Mushroom Soup

1. Use high quality wild rice. Wildly Organic Wild Rice is harvested from the clear waters that border Minnesota and Canada. It is raised without spraying pesticides and without using genetically modified seeds. Wildly Organic Wild Rice is carefully hand-parched to be sure it preserves its quality.

2. Using a variety of rainbow carrots gives the soup a vibrant color and taste. If you cannot find rainbow carrots, regular carrots will work, too.

3. Sautéing the mushrooms before adding the broth enhances the flavor of the soup.

4. This simple soup is full of healthy nutrients from organic carrots, celery, and mushrooms in addition to minerals and vitamins that the wild rice offers. Plus, using the raw unrefined Wildly Organic Himalayan Pink Salt gives the dish extra minerals such as potassium and magnesium. 

Wild Facts about Wild Rice

1. Wild Rice is not actually rice. It is actually a grass that grows wild in rivers or lakes.

2. The main place that it grows is the Great Lakes area and more particularly in Minnesota and Canada.

3. The wild rice is very nutritious and healthy. It is extremely high in anti-oxidants and is a great source of magnesium, folate, zinc, and vitamin B6.

4. In the past it has been a great source of food for Native American tribes that lived around the Great Lakes area.
