Inspired by creamy turkey and wild rice soup recipes, this vegetarian mushroom soup recipe is a whole lot lighter and gets a rich flavor boost from caramelized leeks. Serve with a green salad with sherry vinaigrette and crusty bread to sop up any bits left in the bowl.

Instructions Checklist
  • Heat oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add leeks and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to brown, 6 to 8 minutes. Reduce heat to medium and continue cooking, stirring often, until the leeks are golden brown and very tender, 5 to 10 minutes more.

  • Add sherry and cook, stirring often, for 1 minute. Stir in mushrooms and celery and cook, stirring often, until the mushroom liquid evaporates, 6 to 8 minutes. Add garlic and cook, stirring, for 30 seconds. Add broth, water and rice; cover and bring to a simmer.

  • Reduce heat to maintain a gentle simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until the rice is tender, 50 minutes to 1 hour. Season with pepper and salt. Serve each portion topped with 1 tablespoon each sour cream and almonds.
