  1. Heat oil in a large pot over medium heat. Stir in garlic, onion, and celery, and cook until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in flour, and cook for 3 minutes more. Pour in the vegetable broth, then bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring frequently.
  2. Stir in wild rice, carrot, almonds, and red pepper flakes; return to a simmer, and cook until the carrots are tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in half and half, and cook until warmed through. Season to taste with salt and pepper before serving.

I absolutely love Wild Rice, and this recipe really makes it shine. I was out of onions, so I used 1 shallot with the white part of some scallions - I also used high quality chicken stock (I'm n...

This was a wonderful soup, but because I didn't have some of the ingrdients, I had to change it a little. I omitted the almonds, substituted some very rich homemade turkey broth for the vegetab...

I really wanted to like this soup, but it was just kind of blah, and I think it's because of all the flour. I've made a roux-based soup before, and it was pretty good, but I think it's because i...
