Foodie Friday! Country Mushroom Soup

Dr. D. made this delicious soup this week and it was just perfect for the chilly fall night.  Mushrooms are full of wonderful nutrients and taste amazing!  

This recipe is very simple with very few ingredients and steps.  For those of you fortunate enough to have a Trader Joe's nearby, their Everyday Seasoning is perfect for adding a little extra to this recipe.  Just grind a couple teaspoons into it before serving. Yum!

Country Mushroom Soup

1 medium onion, thinly sliced
1/3 C. brown rice
6 Cups vegetable stock
3 Tbls. Earth Balance
1 lb. fresh mushrooms, wiped clean, trimmed, sliced
1/4 C. plus 1 Tbs. dry sherry
Salt and pepper to taste

In a large saucepan, combine onion, brown rice and stock.  Bring to a boil, then simmer 25 minutes.

Meanwhile, melt Earth Balance in a large saucepan.  Gently cook mushrooms about 10 minutes or until golden brown and most of the moisture has evaporated.

Add mushrooms to stock.  Stir in sherry and season with salt and pepper. Simmer 10 minutes.

Serves 6.
