  • Calories: Approximately 250 kcal per serving


  • 1 cup wild rice blend
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 8 oz cremini mushrooms, sliced
  • 8 oz shiitake mushrooms, stemmed and sliced
  • 2 carrots, diced

  1. Rinse the wild rice blend under cold water and drain.

  3. Add the minced garlic and sauté for another 1 minute until fragrant.
  4. Add the sliced cremini and shiitake mushrooms, diced carrots, and diced celery to the Instant Pot. Sauté for about 5 minutes until the mushrooms start to release their juices.

  6. Add the wild rice blend to the Instant Pot, along with the vegetable broth, water, dried thyme, dried rosemary, salt, and pepper. Stir to combine.
  7. Secure the lid on the Instant Pot and set the valve to the sealing position.
  8. Select the “Manual” or “Pressure Cook” setting and set the timer for 25 minutes on high pressure.
  9. Once the cooking cycle is complete, allow for a natural pressure release for 10 minutes, then carefully quick-release any remaining pressure.
  10. Carefully open the lid and stir in the nutritional yeast, if using.
  11. Taste and adjust seasoning if needed.
  12. Ladle the vegan wild rice and mushroom soup into bowls. Garnish with chopped fresh parsley.
  13. Serve hot, optionally topped with a dollop of vegan sour cream or yogurt.
  14. Enjoy this quick and flavorful vegan wild rice and mushroom soup straight from the Instant Pot!

The addition of nutritional yeast adds a cheesy and savory depth to the soup. Garnish with fresh parsley for a pop of color and serve with a dollop of vegan sour cream or yogurt if desired. It’s a satisfying and nutritious dish that’s ready in no time!
