I love wild rice soup....seriously, it's definitely one of my favorite. Creamy, delicious and with tender bits of vegetables and chicken. This recipe is great with leftover chicken or turkey (hint hint...Thanksgiving leftover turkey).
Wild Rice Soup
2 Cups Cooked Wild Rice
1/2 Cup Chopped Carrot
1/2 Cup Finely Chopped Onion
6 Tablespoons Butter
1/2 Cup Flour
4 Cups Chicken Broth
1-2 Cups Cooked Chicken or Turkey (Diced or Shredded)
1/2 Teaspoon Salt (or Nature's Seasoning)
1 Cup Half and Half
2 Tablespoons Dry Sherry
Step 1: In a large soup pot, add the butter and onion. Over medium heat, saute until the butter is melted and veggies begin to soften.
Step 2: Add the flour to the pot. Stir, it may become a big lump - and that's okay. Continue to stir and cook for 2 minutes.
Step 3: A little bit a time, add the broth. Do not add all at once - if you do this, you will get flour lumps!! Add just a little bit and stir into the flour mixture. Once incorporated, add a bit more. Stir until incorporated. Repeat this until all the broth has been added.
Step 4: Add in the wild rice and chicken or turkey and seasoning. Let simmer for about 5-10 minutes.
Step 5: Add in the Half and Half and Sherry. Stir until incorporated and heated through.
