Creamy Wild Rice Soup Will Keep the Winter Chill Away

Warm up with this creamy wild rice soup! You won't even miss the meat! 

You’ll need:

  • 1 cup uncooked wild rice
  • 3 cups boiling water
  • 2 strips bacon
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 3/4 cup chopped celery
  • 1/2 cup chopped carrots
  • 1 package (8 ounces) sliced mushrooms
  • 1 can chicken broth
  • 2 cans cream of mushroom soup
  • 2 soup cans of milk
  • 1 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • pepper, to taste

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.
  2. Fry bacon until crisp in a Dutch oven. Remove bacon and crumble. 
  3. To bacon grease, add the onion, celery, carrots and mushrooms. Cook, stirring, about 3-4 minutes.
  4. Add the remaining ingredients, including the cooked rice and bacon, and simmer, covered, about 1 hour. Stir occasionally. 

Variation: Need meat? Add shredded, cooked chicken when soup is almost ready and heat through.
