Chicken, Mushroom & Wild Rice Soup

Soup.  My comfort food.

In my opinion, there is just nothing like it.  I have so many soup recipes that I work my way through year ’round, and adding new ones always makes me happy.  It’s one food I never tire of.  Do you have a food like that?

Chicken, Mushroom & Wild Rice Soup

Last month, I shared a recipe with you using these Paisley Farm Organic Marinated Mushrooms.  It was a recipe for Chicken & Mushroom Appetizer Skewers.  They were super yummy, and I knew I needed to try these little beauties in something warm, like a soup!  Best part about these button mushrooms?  They are marinated with red pepper flakes, oregano and garlic, and so full of flavor, it takes away the work of adding any spices other than a little black pepper.

    1. I’m not sure how I forgot that! I cooked it in the microwave and stirred it in with the cream. 🙂

    2. Oh, thank you so much! I was in the middle of preparing it when I asked that. Uh-oh!! So I just put it in at the end of the cooking time, and then stirred in the cream mixture. That worked fine, too. What a WONDERFUL soup this is. I will use this recipe again and again.
