When I made this the first time (OH MY!!), it was soooooo good! Unfortunately for me, I had friends over--they ate every morsel, leaving nothing for me!! Okay, the first time...I used the crockpot. After much online research, I sauted the onions, celery and carrots, mushrooms and then added the flour and the chicken broth. Then I put this mix and the rest of the ingredients (except the half and half) in my crockpot on low for 8 hours (I added the half and half the last hour). I used a can of cooked wild rice soup, by the way. THIS is the way you do it if you want to use a crockpot.
The second time I made this, per another poster's advice, I was lazy and put EVERYTHING in the crockpot for 8 hours (added the half and half the last hour). Bad idea! It was very watery, the carrots and the celery were hard (even after 8 hours!), and the soup was bland.
Anyway, this is the BEST wild rice soup recipe ever! I will definitely make it again, the way I made it the first time. I just have to saute the veggies before crockpotting them.
