celery, finely chopped
carrot, finely chopped
We enjoyed this soup. It is quite rich, but also very tasty.
we felt it lacked a bit of flavor...and the rice was a bit too firm for my liking...the element of chicken was missing and will be added next time...
This to me is the ultimate "comfort soup"...very rich and creamy. The rosemary is the key to the wonderful aroma of this soup. I have made this many, many times and never used to be a big fan of wild rice, but now I am! I personally changed the recipe by cutting the butter quantity in half (otherwise a lot of the butter ends up floating on the top) and I use 2% and skim milk instead of cream and also I love to add a small can of mushrooms (finely chopped). If you like creamy soups like "cream of broccoli", you will like this soup.
I LOVE this recipe and have made it several times this fall since discovering it. I tried it "as is" and then made it healthier (couldn't tell the difference) by using 2T butter and fat free half and half. I also added 2-3 cups chopped turkey or chicken, 1/2 tsp crushed dried thyme, 1/2 tsp. crushed dried parsley, fresh ground pepper. Everyone raves when I make this and I've shared the recipe with several people already.
Very good soup. Using water in which the rice has cooked in the broth makes for a nuttier & wild-ricey-er flavor. I added 2 chicken breasts (cut up, of course) and I think next time I'd use 2/3 of a cup of wild rice instead of 1/3 of a cup.
I just love this fast and easy soup! I served it with tuna salad sandwiches and it was all gone in a flash.
My husband can't wait to invite his parents over to show off this recipe. He thought this was the best soup he has ever had. I did modify it a little bit by using a can of evaporated milk instead of the cream, plus I added a little thyme. Very good! A+
I had been looking for a good wild rice soup recipe and this one is excellent. You can also use fresh rosemary which works really well also.virginia
