Creamy Wild Rice Soup

  • Prep-time: / Ready In:
  • Makes 6 cups

This chowder-style soup showcases the hearty, nutty goodness of wild rice. The dark brown grains are gluten-free, rich in nutrients, and native to North America, where they’re harvested in early fall. Cooking the rice in the soup broth helps meld the flavors in the recipe, though it means you may have to thin the soup with more broth before thickening it with the flours, since the rice may absorb a lot of the liquid. Serve with an arugula, watercress, or spinach salad.

Ingredients

  • 4 cups vegetable stock
  • 1 (8-ounce) package button mushrooms, trimmed and quartered
  • ¾ cup uncooked wild rice, rinsed and drained
  • ½ cup thinly sliced leek (white part only)
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup chopped red bell pepper
  • ½ cup chopped carrot
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • ¼ cup almond flour
  • ¼ cup chickpea flour
  • 1 tablespoon snipped fresh thyme
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar

Instructions

  1. Combine the stock, mushrooms, wild rice, leek, and garlic in a 5-quart Dutch oven or soup pot. Bring to a boil over high heat; reduce heat to medium-low. Cover and simmer for 45 to 50 minutes or until the rice is tender (kernels will start to pop open). Stir in the bell peppers, carrot, and salt. Cover and simmer for 8 minutes more.
  2. Combine the almond flour and chickpea flour in a small bowl; stir in ¼ cup water. Stir the mixture into the soup. Cook, stirring constantly, for 1 to 2 minutes or until thick and bubbly. Stir in up to ½ cup more water to reach the desired consistency. Stir in the thyme and vinegar.
