Creamy Wild Rice Soup Recipe: You Won't Be Able to Stop Eating It by Donna John
Sometimes you just need a bowl of savory soup for dinner, and this creamy wild rice soup recipe will warm you from the inside out. This delicious wild rice soup recipe has a surprise ingredient (bacon!) that adds a meaty flavor you will crave.
This creamy wild rice soup recipe is 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. I've never put chicken into this soup because in my opinion, it's perfect the way it is.
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 2 hours
Total Time: 2 hours and 10 minutes

- 1 package (8 ounces) sliced mushrooms

Here’s how to make it:
- Bring water to a boil and add the wild rice. Simmer, covered, 50 to 60 minutes. Drain and set aside.
