"This is an extremely easy recipe, and fabulous tasting, too. I have been making it for over 6 years and we never tire of it. It's rich, and warms you up on a cold winter day."

  1. In a pot, bring the wild rice and water to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer 45 minutes.
  2. In a separate pot, melt the butter over medium heat, and saute the onion until tender. Blend in the flour until smooth, and gradually stir in the chicken broth. Stirring constantly, bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce heat to low, and mix in the cooked rice, ham, carrots, and almonds. Continue to cook and stir about 5 minutes, until heated through. Thoroughly blend the half and half into the soup just before serving.

This soup was like something you would get in a good restaurant. I didn't know how it would be without any spices, but it had just the right flavor. Even my picky eater really liked it. The o...

I just had this soup for dinner and it was excellent! I did use a box of long grain and wild rice and followed the box directions for that. So that was 2 cups of rice, I didn't have any ham so t...

Excellent soup! It reminds me of the soup from a certain upscale Minnesota grocery chain. It did need extra chicken broth to thin it out a bit.

Used phesant instead of ham and added portabella mushrooms. Good stuff!!!
