Vegan wild rice soup is a hearty, delicious, and warming one-pot meal. It's the perfect dinner on those cold winter evenings. This flavorful soup only takes a few simple ingredients and about 30 minutes to cook. This one-pot recipe just got easier with *new* Instant-Pot instructions!
Nothing beats the smell of vegetable soup cooking on a cold winter day.
This week we are expecting a lot of rain, so I made a batch of this vegan wild rice soup. The hearty vegetables, wild rice, and white beans made this a filling meal.
Not to mention, I was able to throw it all together with ingredients I had on hand. So, no trip to the store for me on this cold wet day!

Vegan Wild Rice Soup is easy to make
It takes one pot, 3 simple steps, and about 30 minutes of cook time.
First, chop the veggies into bite-sized pieces. I used a whole yellow onion, 3 carrots, 3 celery ribs, and equivalent to 3 large garlic cloves.
Second, add them to a large soup pot along with the spices. (oregano, dried parsley, thyme, dry mustard, and salt.)
Cover and cook 5-7 min to slightly soften the veggies.
Add the wild rice and cook a few more minutes.
Third, add the remaining ingredients. (vegetable broth, water, miso, nutritional yeast, beans, and bay leaves.)
In about 30 minutes you'll have yourself a delicious, hearty, warming soup!
When the wild rice soup is ready to serve, garnish each bowl with fresh parsley, fresh ground black pepper, and cashew parmesan.
I brushed the top with organic coconut oil. It paired perfectly with the soup and kept the whole family full and warm on a cold, rainy day.
