"This is an extremely easy recipe, and fabulous tasting, too. I have been making it for over 6 years and we never tire of it. It's rich, and warms you up on a cold winter day."

minced cooked ham
We loved this!! The first time I made this, I made it as directed and it was great but I thought it was just a little too rich and thick. So the next time, I made a few changes. I cooked up a box of long grain and wild rice mix from the store. I added the whole thing (about 2 1/2c.) to the soup. I also decreased the flour to 1/3c., so it wasn't so thick. I also used skim milk instead of the half and half. It turned out great! MY husband usually doesn't give anything a five star but this he said definitely was!
I scaled the recipe in half and made as written, except I followed the advice of other reviewers and cut the flour quantity in half; very glad I did. It is a bit bland, so I did add a splash or two of sherry to it; added the almonds more toward the end for a bit of crunchy texture, and also added a couple of grinds of freshly-grated black pepper as I served it. This was a nice soup to try. Thank you, Debra!
Very good! I made a few small changes and it turned out wonderful. I added 4 cups of broth instead of 3 to make it a bit less thick. I also added cooked chicken instead of the ham and it was a definite thumbs up!
I didn't add as much flour as other reviewers suggested and added a little extra ham and carrots and skipped the almonds all together since I didn't have any on hand. This was fantastic!!!! I served it for 10 guests and everyone thought it was great.
Excellent recipe. Tried it for my family and I'm going to serve it on Thanksgiving. I added some sauted mushrooms but fine without. Delcious!
This soup was like something you would get in a good restaurant. I didn't know how it would be without any spices, but it had just the right flavor. Even my picky eater really liked it. The only thing I did different was I used 4 cups of broth and it was still pretty thick. I definately will make this again!
Doubled the recipe and added a bit of celery with the onion. Also did 4 cups of broth vs. 3 and this was a great wild rice soup!
I just had this soup for dinner and it was excellent! I did use a box of long grain and wild rice and followed the box directions for that. So that was 2 cups of rice, I didn't have any ham so the extra rice made up for the missing ham. The only other changes I made were that I used only 4 tablespoons butter and 2% milk instead of half & half. It turned out great! It really was very delicious and elegant.
