Leek, Mushroom and Rice Creamy Soup

A delicious and creamy winter soup using leeks, mushrooms, a few more veggies and some rice. It’s vegan friendly and perfect for the winter months to warm you right up. Naturally gluten free, this recipe is easy to make, perfect for batch cooking and can easily be chopped and changed to fit with what you have in your fridge.

Made in partnership with the British Leek Grower’s Association

 

What’s in the recipe?

Leeks- Partnering up with the British Leek Growers’ Association, I’m creating a range of recipes that make the most of this humble vegetable. I’ve used two in this recipe, one finely chopped and one chopped into thick dice. This offers a range of texture within the soup.

Mushrooms- You can use whatever mushrooms you have at hand, for this recipe I used chestnut mushrooms.

Vegan Cream- This is pretty easy to find in the supermarkets now, which is really handy. I’ve opted for a single cream.

Rice and Quinoa- I’ve used a microwavable pouch of rice and quinoa to add a bit of bulk to this soup / stew. Choosing a microwavable pouch helps keep timing low, but you can use a precooked rice if you prefer.
