This is my favorite soup this year. I made it for my vegetarian son and it is to-die for. Even us meat eaters loved it! I definitely didn't go for the low fat recipe- I used 1/2 & 1/2, parmagean cheese and white wine. It was so good it tasted like something you would order at a restrant.

Mid-Winter Recipe: Minnesota Wild Rice & Mushroom Soup
Wild Rice and Mushroom Soup
Makes about 6 servings
1 cup wild rice (I used a less expensive wild rice blend)
1 large onion, diced
4 celery stalks, diced
1 pound mushrooms, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon oregano
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 cup white wine
1 bay leaf
1-2 cheese rinds (optional)
4 cups vegetable or chicken stock
2 teaspoons rosemary
1 cup whole milk or cream
1 tablespoon cider vinegar
2 teaspoons salt, divided
Bring a pot of water to a boil. Add the wild rice and one teaspoon of salt, and reduce to a simmer. Cook for 40-50 minutes, until the rice has burst open and tastes tender. Drain, reserving the cooking liquid to use as stock if desired.
While the rice cooks, prepare the rest of the soup. Warm a teaspoon of oil in a dutch oven or stock pot over medium-high heat. Add the onions and celery with a half teaspoon of salt, and cook until the onions have softened and turned translucent, 3-5 minutes. Turn the heat down to medium and stir in the mushrooms and another half teaspoon of salt. Cook until the mushrooms have released all their liquid and turned dark brown, 15-20 minutes. Don't skimp on this step! This is where the soup gets its deep, rich flavor.
Add the garlic and oregano, and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Sprinkle the flour over the veggies and stir until the vegetables become sticky and there is no more visible dry flour. Increase the heat again to medium-high and pour in the wine. Stir and scrape the brown bits from the bottom of the pan. Continue simmering until the wine has reduced and thickened a bit.
Add the bay leaf, cheese rinds, and stock. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Simmer for 20 minutes to meld the flavors. Add the rosemary, milk, and wild rice. Simmer for another 10-15 minutes, until the soup has thickened to your liking. Stir in the cider vinegar. Taste and add more salt or vinegar to taste.
Leftovers will keep refrigerated for up to a week.

I found this Good Housekeeping Soup recipes, etc.

the "Chicken and Escarole soup" recipe tastes exactly like my late MIL's "Italian Wedding Soup." It's just delish.. and you MUST use fresh Romano or Parmesan cheese...

the other soups in here also sound good.. Hope the site comes through on here for you

as a side note....I didn't realize that Lauren's original post was from a few years ago!! not that it matters.. just didn't see it..

Cook broccoli in chicken broth 8-10 minutes til just done. Add Rotel tomatoes and diced cheese. Simmer over low heat til cheese is melted, stirring often. Let cool, then process in food processor or blender.

lol there's no way that Lauren's recipe tastes fresh. First, it calls for canned vegetables. Second, the slow cooker is the best way to suck the life out of vegetables. clearly, lauren is trying to appear human after her mental break by posting some domestic bs.

Lauren posted this in 2008. I BTT'd it after someone linked it on a thread I started asking for soup recipes.

I don't imagine that canned ingredients will make "fresh" tasting soup, but I'm will to see if it makes good tasting soup.

But everything's canned and you even add a can of soup....to a soup recipe

Why not use all those things but fresh and make a really healthy version.

I love to cook from scratch when I have time.

However, this is a recipe that I can dump in the crockpot in less than five minutes in the morning on my way out the door. The "soup" is actually powdered and more seasoning than soup IMHO.

Gar... I make Taco Soup using canned chili beans & tomatoes with green chilies about 1/month.

It is very good, and takes no time to make when I'm in a hurry.

D3inks -- I tried the WW Hamburger Vegetable Soup this weekend. It was a big hit!! I also added some cooked lentils I had (from Trader Joes) and a few other veggies I need to use up.

This one is definitely going into the rotation.

I have a great, (high calorie!) potato soup recipe that uses onion, potatoes, heavy cream, sausage (and more), as well as a secret ingredient that totally changes the flavor profile just before serving.

I've got to hook up my external hard drive to get to it so I'll try to remember to find it today or tomorrow after work. Until then, marking my spot so that I can find this thread again.

Thanks for sharing, gals!

Oh, how I love the Peas! I made the lasagna soup today to take to the women's shelter where I'm serving tonight and it is the bomb. I added shredded zucchini and some Italian seasoning, and since I needed to stretch it a bit, I added some extra tomato sauce. Absolutely perfect! Thanks so much to those who posted the recipe!

Someone mentioned a sausage soup that Lauren posted in the past but I didn't see it in the thread anyone have a link to it? I really want to make soup a regular on the menu this winter but I want to add a few more recipes into the rotation.
