Roasted Mushroom Soup with Apple and Brie Crostini

This lighter take on the classic cream of mushroom soup adds more flavor and is perfect with the sweet and cheesy brie and apple crostini. This recipe uses rice to thicken and add a creamy consistency to soup without adding cream. Use Vegetable stock for a vegan soup.
