Wild rice and mushroom soup

Soups, again and again ! But hearty soups that are nourishing and filling. Here is a delicious (and very pretty) wild and mushroom soup, I put button mushrooms, oyster mushroom and cloud ear mushrooms in there.

It's a complete meal in soup form, the wild rice makes it really filling because there's a lot to chew. A very umami soup with delicious mushrooms. What's not to love ?

Speaking about soup, I wrote a cookbook about soups, it will be translated to English very soon and I can't wait to show you all my book baby. You'll find 25 delicious soup recipes inside.
