Soup Swappin'

One of my favorite blogs that I read is "Life As Mom".
Today's guest post was a soup recipe swap, so I'm posting my dear friend Robyn's Minnesota Wild Rice Soup.
(It's a REAL Minnesota recipe - she's a native!)

Anyway, this is a delicious soup that I love - I hope y'all enjoy it!

Minnesota Wild Rice Soup (serves 3-4; I usually triple or quadruple the recipe!)

2 T butter

1 T minced onion

¼ flour

2 C chicken broth

2 C cooked wild rice

(can use Uncle Ben’s Long Grain & Wild Rice)

Cooked chicken to taste

½ t. salt

1 C half and half

3 T grated carrots

3 T slivered almonds

Minced parsley

1/3 C minced ham

    1. Cook wild rice according to package instructions – set aside.
    2. Melt butter in heavy saucepan, sauté onion until tender.
    3. Blend in flour; gradually add broth.
    4. Cook, stirring constantly until mixture thickens slightly
    5. Stir in rice and salt – simmer 5 minutes
    6. Blend in half and half, carrot, almonds, chicken and ham
    7. Heat to serving temp – garnish with parsley

Sounds yummy. And my parents are real Minnesotans, so I am, too. Sorta, kinda, not.

That sounds tasty- I love the idea of the almonds in there for some crunch and texture! And my hubby loves ham and chicken together so he'd be a happy camper. Thanks for sharing!
