Creamy Wild Rice Soup Recipe: This Savory Soup Will Warm You From the Inside Out

Sometimes you just need a bowl of savory soup, and this creamy wild rice soup recipe will warm you from the inside out. This delicious soup recipe has a surprise ingredient (bacon!) that adds a meaty flavor you will crave. It's so hearty and filling, it's enough for a complete meal without adding additional meat. But if you prefer, you can add shredded, cooked chicken when the soup is almost ready and simply heat it through. 

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 2 hours
Total Time: 2 hours, 10 minutes

Servings: 6 to 8


Here’s how to make it:

  1. Bring water to a boil and add the wild rice. Simmer, covered, 50-60 minutes. Drain and set aside.
