Are you looking for a good, nourishing, colorful, easy and fast to make, delicious soup? Then you should try this delicious all year healthy & creamy vegetarian wild rice soup which has a lot of vitamins, good carbs and thanks to the bean’s tons of protein.

Is soup season over? I don't know, because I'm a soup lover, so I eat soup all year. My husband on the other hand has nothing against it but he would consider himself a seasonal soup eater. This recipe needs to be finally shared. That's why I don't care about the soup season discussion that I'm having with myself. The last couple of weeks it's been raining and very gray. It is MAY and stormy here in Germany, of course we need to make a warm and comfy nourishing soup. My husband had nothing against it, because he loves this soup. It's delicious, satisfying and different. You don't need a big bowl of it, even though you want it, because it's so nourishing and delicious. The soup leaves you full for hours. Like I almost always say about my recipes: this one is so easy to make. All you need is one pot. There is no mess involved hence you don't need to clean up much. This sounds perfect for me as a mom and I think for my busy signal hustling friends too. But let’s talk about the soup and why you should definitely make it.

Why you should make this wild rice soup recipe..

Let's start with the fact that it is delicious and a simple wild rice soup recipe. We don't eat a lot of wild rice here in Germany nor in the Dominican Republic, that's why I would say it is very different. The ingredients are clean, fresh, wholesome, very healthy and simple. So take a pot and let's start cooking.

How to store the wild rice soup?

You can store the soup in the fridge for about 4 days. If I'm eating the soup days after I like to add a little bit of ground caraway seeds to prevent bloating. If you know you won't eat the soup for the next 4 days, you can freeze it. If you're cooking the frozen soup add some fresh herbs, salt and Parmigiano Reggiano.


  • RICE.

    Make sure to use 100 % organic wild and Basmati rice. It will give the soup a very unique taste. I like to mix half wild and half Basmati rice together.

    One red and one yellow bell pepper. You can be very flexible with the bell pepper; you can add more if you love bell pepper.
  • ONION.

    I used one big yellow onion. Red onion works well too. GARLIC CLOVES. 2 medium size garlic cloves are perfect. The garlic adds a perfect flavor but is not dominant.

    You can make the white beans the night before or use canned white beans.

    I prefer fresh or frozen green beans, but canned green beans are fine too.
  • CREAM.

    I love Italian cream. If you can get it, I would definitely use it.

    Some fresh herbs are always good. If you don't have coriander herb, use some coriander spice.


    I always buy it in one piece. If I need some cheese, I grate the parmesan. You can taste the difference. For this recipe we will need 40 g of Parmigiano Reggiano. If you are a cheese lover, you can add more.
  • LIME.

    Just half lime to give the soup a fresh taste.



  • THYME.

  • WATER.

    1,5 l Water. Most of the time the rice swells up at the end of cooking. If you don't like it that way add a little bit of Water and salt.
