Step 1

Soak the dried mushrooms in 1 cup hot water for 20 minutes or until plump.

Step 2

Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion, garlic, salt, thyme and pepper to pot and cook, stirring often, for 5 minutes or until softened.

Step 3

Increase heat to high and add white mushrooms to pot. Cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in chicken broth, plumped mushrooms and mushroom soaking liquid. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 30 minutes. Carefully transfer soup to blender and puree until smooth, working in batches if necessary.

Step 4

Add yogurt and cream to blender and puree until well blended. Return soup to pot and stir in tomatoes and rice; cook over medium heat for 5 minutes or until heated through.
