  • Instant Pot
  • Ladle


  • 5 carrots chopped
  • 5 stalks celery chopped
  • 1/2 onion diced
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 cup uncooked wild rice
  • 8 ounces fresh sliced mushrooms
  • 4 cups vegetable broth or chicken broth
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon poultry seasoning

For the stovetop:

  • 6 Tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 1/2 cups milk


  • Add the carrots, celery, onion, garlic, rice, mushrooms, chicken broth, salt, and poultry seasoning into the Instant Pot.
  • Lock lid in place and turn valve to sealing. Press Manual or Pressure Cook and set cook time for 45 minutes.
  • Allow natural release.
  • When the soup is done, melt the butter in a saucepan. Whisk in the flour. Let the mixture cook for a minute or two to remove the floury taste. Whisk the milk, a little bit at a time, until you have a smooth, thickened sauce. Add more salt if you need too.
  • Mix the creamy sauce with the soup in the Instant Pot and you will have DELICIOUS wild rice soup!



  • If you REALLY don’t like mushrooms, you can leave them out.  You can choose to add some chicken instead (or in addition to the mushrooms).
