    Find your super hugest bowl cuz it’s Homemade Soup Day!
    I was a picky little chickpea. The only soups I’d (willingly) eat as a kid were Mom’s homemade soups, and my favorite was her chunky mushroom rice soup…it was rich and thick and salty and totally satisfying.
    My least favorite soup was the tomato soup they served in my grade school cafeteria. If there was anything other than ketchup, pepper and water in it I’d be surprised. The only way I could choke it down was by piling in a gazillion bags of oyster crackers. All hail Adam Exton, inventor of the almighty Oyster Cracker! :)

    Porcini Wild Rice Soup
    From PETA
    1/2 oz. dried porcini mushrooms
    2 cups boiling water
    2 Tbsp. olive oil

    4 cloves garlic, minced
    2 Tbsp. fresh thyme
    1 tsp. salt
    Black pepper, to taste
    8 oz. cremini mushrooms (about 3 cups), thinly sliced
    1 1/2 cups wild rice (a blend, preferably)
    4 cups vegetable broth (or more if needed)
    1 carrot, peeled and grated
    Several sprigs fresh chervil for garnish
