Say hello to a soul-warming recipe showcasing some of the Golden State’s best produce – a simple Collard Green and Wild Rice Soup with Mushrooms. This soup is a soul-satisfying meal that’s made of ingredients that are always in season in California, ensuring you can enjoy this soup whenever your heart desires.
At the core of our recipe are two ingredients that speak volumes about California’s diverse agriculture: wild rice and mushrooms. Wild rice, with its nutty flavor, perfectly complements the earthy tones of mushrooms. But have you ever wondered how these mushrooms make their journey from California farms to your bowl?
In California, mushroom farming is both an art and a science. Farms like Far West Fungi are perfect examples of this. These fungi are not just grown but carefully nurtured in controlled environments that mimic their natural habitats. From the selection of substrates to the precise monitoring of humidity and temperature, every step is a testament to the dedication of California’s farmers to producing top-quality mushrooms.
