Creamy Wild Rice Soup

This recipe is a plant based version of a family tradition. Every year on Christmas Eve, my family makes a creamy wild rice soup. It's the one day a year that we get to enjoy this soup!
My family enjoys this soup with lefse, you could eat it as is or serve it with a hearty whole wheat bread.
It's a perfect heart warming soup for a cozy cold day. It's made with fresh seasonal veggies, wild rice and greens.
This version calls for coconut milk which adds a hint of sweetness to balance out all the savory flavors. Don't be surprised if you find yourself coming back to this recipe again and again.
