Perfect Soup Weather

Well, it's finally gotten reallllly cold here in Oklahoma.  It's reached that time of year when I don't want to go outside to even get the mail.  I'm sure if you live in a place where weather is traditionally below freezing in the winter than our weather this week would be a piece of cake for you.  I for one, am already ready for the Spring! 

But until then, we are making a lot of soup at our house. 

Below is one of our favorite recipes for Wild Rice and Mushroom Soup.  I found it in a Cooking Light cookbook a while back and let me tell you, I could eat this soup every week. 


1 tablespoon olive oil
1 package of mushrooms
1 cup of chopped celery, red pepper, onion mixture
1 small (2.75 ounce) package of fast cooking wild rice
1 package of light garlic-and-herb Laughing Cow cheese wedges
2 cups of low fat milk
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon of pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt

First, heat the oil over medium and cook the mushrooms, and vegetable mixture until the vegetables are browned. 

Next, prepare rice according to the package; unwrap the cheese and chop into small pieces.

Finally, add milk, cheese, thyme, pepper and salt to the mushroom mixture.  Stir well and bring to boil.  Reduce heat and cook for a few minutes.   Stir in the rice and cook for a minute more.  The soup should be fairly thick and delicious!

It is soooo good. 


Now, does that not look tasty?!
