  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • 5 carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 5 stalks celery, diced
  • 1 cup wild rice
  • 1 cup fresh diced mushrooms
  • ½ yellow onion, chopped
  • 1½ tablespoons minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon dried thyme
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1½ cups milk, divided


For best results, we recommend using:


  1. Stir vegetable broth, carrots, celery, rice, mushrooms, onion, garlic, salt, and thyme together in the steel pot of your pressure cooker.
  2. Seal lid on the pressure cooker, turn steam vent to Sealing, and cook on High Pressure for 45 minutes. Immediately turn steam vent to Venting to relieve pressure.
  3. Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir flour into melted butter; cook for 2 minutes.
  4. Stir ½ cup milk into the flour mixture until smooth; repeat with remaining milk. Cook until you have a thick and creamy sauce, about 2 minutes.
  5. Stir sauce into the wild rice soup.
Mealthy tip:

Did you know, wild rice is actually a grass? It is harvested as a grain and is native to North America. Wild rice is high in protein, dietary fiber, and low in fat. It is also gluten-free.

You HAVE to try this! You won't believe how great this is on a cold day. I would recommend not changing a thing; this recipe is perfect as-is. I wanted to add more vegetables, but didn't and am glad I didn't.

Creamy rice dishes are so comforting. This one is no exception. I loved the use of wild rice, which I find to be vastly underrated/underused. I used chanterelle mushrooms because I had them. Definitely better than white or even cremini.

This was a really good soup. I wasn't sure how it was going to turn out, but it was delicious. Wild rice is a favorite ingredient in our house, so whenever we have an opportunity to cook with it we do.

I'm obsessed with this creamy soup. It was so delicious! I used chicken broth instead of vegetable broth, so technically mine wasn't vegetarian, but it was so good. Definitely going to make it again!
