“A slight variation on a recipe I received from a fellow Minnesota farm wife. A delicious soup that can also easily be cooked in a slow cooker and freezes well.”

Original recipe yields 8 servings

Directions

  1. Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the onion, celery and carrots and saute for 5 minutes. Add the mushrooms and saute for 2 more minutes. Then add the flour and stir well. Gradually pour in the chicken broth, stirring constantly, until all has been added. Bring just to a boil, reduce heat to low and let simmer.
  2. Next, add the rice, chicken, salt, curry powder, mustard powder, parsley, ground black pepper, almonds and sherry. Allow to heat through, then pour in the half-and-half. Let simmer for 1 to 2 hours. (Note: Do not boil or your roux will break.)

This is a great tasting soup! I did it in a crockpot without any of the extra steps. Chicken and roux and rice were all raw. Just combined everything, set it on low and walked away. I added the cream/milk just before serving. It still turned out great and was super easy! Recipe survives well with substitutes or omissions: oil instead of butter, milk instead of cream, no mushrooms, etc. I used the food processor to chop all of the veggies fast and easy. Great recipe.

Since moving to Minnesota, I've tried several wild rice soup recipes - this is the best yet. Several steps can be completed the nite before - cooking/cubing the chicken, cooking the rice, etc. I've found that the key is to learn how to cook wild rice first - I always use 4 cups of water to one cup wild rice with a tsp of salt and boil it for approx. 40-50 minutes. Then I divide it into to large baggies of 2 cups each, which can be frozen for later use. I added 8 slices of cooked and crumbled bacon, substituted garlic salt for the salt, and ommitted the curry and mustard powders. I also used 3 cups of cooked wild rice instead of two. A GREAT recipe that I will use again.

This is the second time I've made this soup, and had to jump on here and give it 5 stars!! This soup is naughty but oh so nice :-) One observation and one suggestion. Observation: Don't worry about the flour "clumping" when you add it to the veggies....the clumps cook out! Suggestion: Double the Curry. This ingredient sounded strange to me when I first looked at the recipe, but believe me it's the *KEY* to this soup. Well any type of chicken based soup, so I'm told. Who would have ever thought Curry makes chicken soup more "chickeny"!! Enjoy, it's awesome.
