“Creamy” Wild RIce and Mushroom Soup is what we will be serving for lunch today.

That means it is soup time and what better way to make a great soup than to take full advantage of your slow cooker. Set it and forget it. We love a good soup here in Mexico and serve it all year enen when in the high season. The only way we can do that is to use a slow cooker to prevent heating the house any more than we need to.

This satisfying, earthy soup is warm and comforting. The wild rice is filling, while the finely minced and chopped vegetables give the soup a more consistent flavor throughout.

We do use a little Half and Half to add a rich flavor but it can easlybe replaced with 2% milk if need be. I have been known for add a spoon or two of farm fresh creamy butter to get a rich creamy taste when I don’t happen to have any half and half. (more…)
