"My husband LOVES this soup! I used to make only 6 servings, but now I always make 12 and it still usually only lasts an extra day! Take some time with this recipe -- it's worth it! I serve this hearty soup in bread bowls with a salad on the side."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

diced cooked ham
finely shredded carrots
1 1/2 tablespoons
1 1/3 cups
uncooked wild rice
I cook the wild rice before I add it to the soup!!!
This was just O-K. Once all the ingredients were combined, I could tell that, in all, it just wasn't that interesting. Soooo, I added a little (well, actually a lot) of red pepper. It definitely kicked it up and made the soup a lot more tasty. I also used about 3 times more ham than what is called for; it helped things along too. All in all, there was still something missing, but I couldn't put my finger on what it was. I will likely not be making this again; all the family could muster is, "well, it's different for sure".
I don't make a lot of soup with rice, but this recipe is so good! I had some ham to use up, plus some half and half, so it was perfect. The only thing that I did different was add some cayenne pepper just before serving, and used a wild rice mix, as that is all I had. We like most things with a little "kick". We had it with salad and crusty french bread, and it was wonderful! Thank you for posting. It will be on our special soup list from now on.
Wow~ is right! This soup is very yummy. I added 1 cup of diced ham & 1 cup of diced chicken. I also used 2% milk (lower fat) and it still was rich and creamy. Sherry is optional. Would definitely make again!
I did not rate this a 5 only because I thought it had too much pepper and it was too thick. And I like pepper, but a tbl and a half was too much. Next time I will add only 2 tsp of pepper and use only 3/4 cup flour to make the roux. Other than that it turned out very good and very hearty. My store did not have plain wild rice so I bought a brown and wild rice blend and I liked the variety of rices. I ended up adding two more cups of chicken broth to thin it down a little. I will be making this again.
While good, this soup didn't wow me.
My version of this soup is the same except instead of almonds, I use 2 cups of diced, cooked chicken. I love the creaminess and the added tang that the sherry gives. Serve with crusty, fresh bread and a nice salad.
My family just LOVES this recipe. We make it every winter and its just thick and hearty enough that we end up making a 24-serving version and it only lasts a few days.
We substitute chicken, instead of ham. It's great! While its true its may not have a "Wow" factor to it, its a nice comfort food on those cold winter days, especially in a bread bowl!
If your from MN, this is very similar in taste (maybe thicker) to the MN Ren Fest version!
