|Jen's Mushroom Rice Soup|
My Mother-in-law, Grace, gave us several cans of mushrooms, so I thought....why not use them and make a soup!
I started by sauteing onions with butter and olive oil. Once they were pretty tender, I added 3 cans of the mushrooms (drained); they're smaller cans. I season each layer with a bit of salt & pepper.
I then added 2 cans of chicken broth and about 3/4 cup of white rice. I wanted to add some wild rice I had (I think that would have been even better), but that would have taken 45 minutes to cook, and I was hungry! I also added about a 1/4 cup of black beans (throw in some protein wherever you can!).
I seasoned mine with a dash of garlic salt, a tiny dash of sage, italian seasoning, dash of dried parsley flakes, tarragon, and thyme. You can add whatever seasonings you love!
I cooked that at a low heat, with the lid on, for about 15 minutes, to cook the rice. I then added some cream, probably about 1/2 cup.
I make a lot of soups, and I think this is definitely my favorite, so far!
