Added a 6oz box Uncle Ben's Long Grain & Wild Rice with the seasoning (wasn't sure if recipe called for seasoning packet or not). I also added garlic and sliced baby bella mushrooms as others had suggested.Will make this again.

For a creamy soup, after step 7, I poured it into my Vitamix Blender and pureed. It was AMAZING! Definitely a keeper. Great recipe. Thank you!
