A delicious meatless soup that's ready in less than 30 minutes! So hearty and great leftover! Creamy Mushroom Rice and Quinoa Medley Soup Recipe from Hot Eats and Cool Reads


It's another cold and snowy day here in Minnesota again today. Days like these are actually my favorite! I love being nice and cozy inside our warm house, looking outside and the gorgeous white snow falling. My sisters feel the same way about snow as I do, but most people think we're absolutely crazy! I guess we really are true Minnesotans, and I really can't imagine living anywhere else!


When the weather is a little on the chilly side, I always crave a nice warm, hearty bowl of soup! Today's recipe totally fits that description and more! It's very easy to make and full of veggies and grains! I tend to lean more towards meatless meals around here since my daughter isn't much of a meat eater, but this recipe would be delicious with some leftover rotisserie chicken breast added in.

This soup is great for weekdays or even weekends since it's ready in less than 30 minutes! The mushrooms add a delicious flavor to the broth, along with the rosemary and fresh parsley. I had some friends taste test this recipe with me and it got rave reviews all around! My friends 3 year old even loved it!

When you are making meatless meals, Minute® Multi-Grain Medley or Minute® Whole Grain Brown Rice are the perfect ingredients to use in place of the meat!


Both Multi-Grain Medley and Whole Grain Brown Rice can be ready in 10 minutes, making them the perfect side dish on their own, or added in soup or skillet recipes! Minute® Rice is a brand we all know and love and it's a great pantry staple that you can always have on hand! In today's recipe I used the Multi-Grain Medley! Because it comes in four pre-packaged bags, it's super easy to just open the bag and pour one in! No measuring required and it's 100% whole grain and gluten free! They are both non-GMO too, which is a bonus!


Minute® Multi-Grain Medley is the newest product from the Minute Rice family! It's a delicious blend of Thai red rice, long grain brown rice, wild rice and quinoa! I really love this blend and the nutty flavor and nutrition it provides. It will be a regular addition to our meal plan!

I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as our family did! How would you use Multi-Grain Medley in your kitchen?
