Slurping Up My Brown Rice Mushroom Soup

This dish has a lovely mushroom fragrance to it, and is easy to slurp up, even on a hot summer day.

The stock is simply delicious – possibly a nice dish to have if anyones is having a little hangover or craving for a nice soupy bowl of porridge.

  • This recipe was kindly adapted from Saving Room For Dessert’s Wild Rice Mushroom Soup. The recipe added dried porcini mushrooms, which probably added more strongly to the flavours of this dish. But if you can’t get that, just use the normal brown mushrooms!
