  1. Wild Rice and Mushroom Soup


    Inspired by creamy turkey and wild rice soup recipes, this vegetarian mushroom soup recipe is a whole lot lighter and gets a rich flavor boost from caramelized leeks. Serve with a green salad with sherry vinaigrette and crusty bread to sop up any bits left in the bowl –  from AARP.

    A Healthy Recipe

    Prep/Cook Time: 1:50 Hours, Servings: 6


    • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    • 6 cups sliced leeks (4-6 medium leeks)
    • 1/2 cup dry sherry
    • 1 pound cremini mushrooms, sliced
    • 1 1/2 cups sliced celery
    • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
    • 6 cups mushroom broth
    • 2 cups of water
    • 1 cup wild rice
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
    • 1/8 teaspoon salt
    • 6 tablespoons sour cream
    • 6 tablespoons sliced almonds, toasted


    1. Heat oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add leeks and cook, occasionally stirring, until starting to brown, 6 to 8 minutes. Reduce heat to medium and continue cooking, often stirring, until the leeks are golden brown and very tender, 5 to 10 minutes more.
    2. Add sherry and cook, often stirring, for 1 minute. Stir in mushrooms and celery and cook, frequently stirring, until the mushroom liquid evaporates, 6 to 8 minutes. Add garlic and cook, stirring, for 30 seconds. Add broth, water, and rice; cover and bring to a simmer.
    3. Reduce heat to maintain a gentle simmer and cook, occasionally stirring, until the rice is tender, 50 minutes to 1 hour. Season with pepper and salt and serve each portion topped with 1 tablespoon each sour cream and almonds.
