This hearty and filling soup is perfect for lunch or dinner – and is completely vegan! Loaded with fresh vegetables like potatoes, carrots, onions, and spices, this soup is great for a plant-based meal for any season.
I love a good creamy rice soup – and this recipe is another one to add to my repertoire! And the best part about it? Its totally plant-based, healthy, and guilt-free.
This soup will definitely keep you full for hours. With a base of potatoes, wild rice, fresh vegetables, and mushrooms the texture is thick and creamy while being completely vegan.
I made this over the stove top, but since I just got an Instant Pot, this recipe could also work really well in a pressure cooker (or slow cooker!) too.
I made a big pot of this for Sunday Meal Prep (my favorite cooking day of the week!) and it got rave reviews from the hubby who had it for lunch each day of the week. We will definitely be putting this into the lunch rotation for sure.
As always, if you make this creamy vegan mushroom rice soup be sure to leave me a comment, rate this recipe, and tag me on Instagram so I can feature you. I love seeing all your photos of my recipe recreations!
