The earthy flavor and meaty texture of mushrooms transforms a few simple ingredients into a mouthwatering soup. Use a packaged gourmet blend or any combination of cremini, shiitake, oyster, and button mushrooms.

How to Make It

Step 1

Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms and celery mixture; cook 6 to 7 minutes or until vegetables are browned, stirring occasionally.

Step 2

While mushroom mixture cooks, prepare rice according to package directions, omitting salt and fat. Unwrap cheese; chop into bite-sized pieces.

Step 3

Add milk, cheese, thyme, pepper, and salt to mushroom mixture, stirring well; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cook 3 minutes or until cheese melts and soup thickens. Stir in rice. Cook 1 minute or until heated.
