Instant Pot Creamy Mushroom and Wild Rice Soup (Gluten and Dairy Free)

September 16, 2019

This soup is the ultimate comfort food. Made with a rich roux, this soup is creamy without having the heaviness of dairy..making it easy on the gut too!

It is the perfect meal to enjoy during busy weekdays, colder weather, or even holidays. I love it because it is very hearty, so it be easily be enjoyed as a main dish. Simply pair it with some greens for a complete meal.

The choice of mushrooms is truly up to you – I used cremini, but you can use a combination of fresh and/or dried mushrooms which will add to the depth of flavour in this soup.

This dish can be easily frozen. I make a big batch of this soup and freeze it for those busy weeknight evenings, or whenever I feel like something warm and cozy!

Check out the recipe below, you won’t be disappointed!
