Mushroom Soup... Yum!!!

So, I made another Oh She Glows soup and it was delicious!! Of course I changed it up to what I had on hand so here is what I ended up with:

Mushroom Onion Soup

1 cup short grain brown rice 
2 pounds fresh mushrooms (I had 1 lb button and 1 lb baby bella -- but use whatever you would like), sliced
4 chopped sweet onion
6 garlic cloves, minced
1 bag frozen spinach
4 cups low-sodium chicken broth 
3 1/2 cups water
1 tsp herbs de provence
1 tsp fresh rosemary
Salt & pepper, to taste
2 tbsp Worchester sauce 

1.  Cook brown rice according to the directions.
2. In a large pot over medium-low heat, add a bit of oil (~1 tsp) along with the chopped onion, saute 4 minutes.  Add minced garlic and saute another 2 minutes.  Add mushrooms and herbs de provence.  Saute another 4 minutes or until onions are transparent and mushrooms are starting to cook.
3. Stir in broth, spinach, water, salt, pepper, Worchester sauce. Simmer over medium heat for about 10 minutes.
4. Scoop half of the mixture into a blender and blend until almost smooth (but still a bit chunky). Add back into the pot.
5. Stir in cooked rice.
