Vegan Vegetable & Wild Rice Soup

This soup an easy, healthy meal to throw together on a chilly day! It’s full of veggies and protein. It’s also loaded with tons of flavor. Being that this soup is mostly vegetables it’s pretty affordable as well. It does contain wild rice and not the wild rice blend packages the real ancient grains black in color, wild rice.


Start by preheating your oven to 350F. Also line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set it aside.

Next, add 2 tablespoons of oil to a large pot on medium-high heat along with the minced shallot, carrots and celery {if using, I didn’t add this because my son won’t eat it}. Let it sauté about 10 minutes until the carrots are tender. You also want the shallots and carrots to have fry marks on it.

Once the carrots are tender add in the garlic,  mushrooms, kidney beans and sausages. Mix all the ingredients together and sauté another 5 minutes until the garlic has become fragrant. Reduce the temperature to low.

Be sure to rinse your wild rice before adding it to the pot. Using a strainer thoroughly rinse the rice.

Next, add the wild rice, vegetable stock, water, onion powder and dried thyme.

Cover and let the soup simmer on medium-low for 50 minutes. You need to be sure the wild rice at least started to crack open.

Once the wild rice is done, add in the kale and milk. Mix thoroughly and add in the salt and pepper and adjust to taste.

In the meantime, chop up your bread slices and add to the prepared baking sheet. Spray the chopped bread with coconut oil and be sure to coat all sides of it. Bake the bread croutons in the oven for 20-30 minutes. Be sure to check after 20 minutes. Toss if needed and return to the oven for the remaining time. Remove and set aside.

Divide soup portions into bowls, top with homemade croutons and enjoy this hearty and filling meal!
