EG Cleanse Favorite – Creamy Wild Rice Mushroom Soup

The verdict is in! The official favorite soup of the Fall S.O.U.P. Cleanse, according to our cleansers, is this Creamy Wild Rice Mushroom Soup. I can’t say I’m surprised. The soup is super creamy and comforting; it’s the perfect soup to help us transition into the colder season. It’s especially popular for my cleansers and clients who prefer some texture in their soup. This one has a creamy base, but the various mushrooms and rice give it a substantial mouthfeel. And don’t even get me started on the nutrient benefits. There are three different varieties of mushrooms contained in this soup: shiitake, cremini, and white button mushroom. Together, they can help fight cancer, boost immunity, improve the gut microbiome, support heart health, and so much more.

1 1/2 C wild rice blend
4 C diced mixture of shiitake, cremini, and white button mushrooms
