Hearty Mushroom Soup

Sometimes a day just calls for a warm cup of soup. I used to work at this restaurant when I was 15 that made the BEST mushroom soup. I’ve done my best to recreate it and I must say, it tastes pretty damn delicious. Plus it’s hearty and only contains 229 calories per serving! What more could you ask for?

4 cups chicken broth

1 cup yellow onions, chopped
1 leek, chopped
2 carrots, chopped
2 teaspoons dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups mushrooms, chopped
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1 1/2 cup wild rice, cooked
