Wild Rice Mushroom Soup

I think mushrooms often get used only as a seasoning or added flavor, but I think they are delicious enough to be the main part of a meal. This recipe uses a large quantity of mushrooms and the result is delicious. Even though this contains some dairy, it freezes quite well! —Wendy Campbell, New Wilmington, Pennsylvania

    Delicious and creamy soup. The rice was just right amount, not too thick.
