Earlier this week I thought, a wild rice soup sounds good. So I looked around, and I found out such a thing exists. I checked out a few recipes — this one and this one seemed the most promising and the most like what I was seeking.
I ended up basically following the first one — I doubled the recipe, and I just used one package of chicken, about 1.5 pounds.
Wild Rice Soup
1 cup uncooked wild rice
6 tablespoons butter
2 onions, chopped
2 cup chopped celery
6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
salt and pepper to taste
2 (10.75 ounce) can chicken broth
4 cups milk
1.5 pounds chicken, diced
Prepare rice according to package directions. Cook the chicken in a large pot. Transfer the chicken to a bowl and melt the butter or margarine in a large pot over medium heat. Add the onion and celery and saute for 5 to 10 minutes, or until almost tender.
Stir in the four and salt and pepper to taste. Add the broth and milk and stir until soup thickens.
Add the rice and the chicken and allow to heat through, about 10 minutes.
It’s quite tasty!
Oh, one more note: I made this with our wild rice mix, not straight wild rice. Not sure what the recipe intended, but I do like it this way. This wild rice mix consists of wild rice and brown rice.
