Vegan Wild Rice Soup With Jackfruit Recipe
By Earth of Maria
1 medium onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 large carrot, peeled and chopped
1 medium red bell pepper, chopped
2 ribs celery, chopped
1 1/2 cups button mushrooms, chopped
1 can jackfruit, (400g) drained and rinsed
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp onion granules
1 cup wild rice, uncooked
1 large sweet potato, (around 1lb/500g)
5 cups vegetable stock, (vegetable broth)
3 tbsp tamari
2 cups kale, de-stemmed and chopped
salt, to taste
2 1/4 cups plant based milk, unsweetened
1/2 cup buckwheat flour
1Sauté the onion and the garlic in a non-stick saucepan for around 3-4 minutes, until fragrant.
2Add the carrots, red bell pepper, celery and mushrooms. Continue to sauté, adding a splash of water if necessary, for a further 3-4 minutes, until the vegetables soften.
3Add the jackfruit, cumin and onion granules, stirring for 2 minutes to coat.
4Add the wild rice and the sweet potato, also pouring in the vegetable stock. Bring to a boil, then simmer uncovered over a medium heat for around 45 minutes, until the rice is tender. Add more vegetable stock if necessary.
5Around 10 minutes before the end of the cooking process, prepare the cream. Add the flour and around 1/4 cup of the plant based milk to a non-stick frying pan and stir for a minute to combine. Then, pour in the rest of the milk and whisk until the cream thickens. This should take around 5 minutes.
6Transfer the cream to the saucepan and stir it in to combine together with the tamari and kale. Continue stirring until the kale wilts. Season to taste with more salt if necessary before serving.

Earth of Maria
I’ve never been good at introductions because when they’re needed, I seem to forget every single interesting thing about myself. But I guess we’ll start with the basics. My name is Maria, and I am a twenty year old student from England. I study history at the University of Oxford and live in Brighton, but I was born in Russia and moved to the UK around ten years ago. I’m a vegan foodie (as you can probably tell by this blog), a lover of long walks and somewhere awkwardly between extrovert and introvert. Veganism and healthy eating are a huge part of my life, given that both have helped me overcome an unhealthy relationship with food. Finding balance took a lot of time and patience. But, as with many things in life, hard work proved 110% worth it! Whenever I’m not in the kitchen or working in my room, you’ll often find me at the gym, or at the grocery store looking for inspo for my next recipe.
