Reviews for Cream of Wild Rice Soup
"Great recipe! I controlled the sodium by substituting my home-made chicken broth rather than using store bought. Plus I cut the recipe in half for just the two of us. It freezes well and tastes even better when re-warmed."
"This soup is my husbands favorite, it is in our monthly rotation. All i changed is i added red pepper flakes and my husband likes extra rice"
"This is a keeper!"
"Really good. The second time I added mushrooms, used half and half instead of evap. milk and adjusted the salt. Loved it."
"Found it to be very bland tasting. Had to add a lot of seasonings, chicken bouillon, a can of cream of mushrooms soup, bacon, and mushrooms, and it still wasn't as tasty as other recipes. Would not make again."
"It must be very good since I had to look it up a second and third time to make it again!"
"Excellent. I add mushrooms. Minced garlic. chicken. Cilantro"
"Excellent and easy .all joy smiles all around !!!"
"I added mushrooms and I think 2 carrots might be better. It was good but do think it could use more spices like thyme or rosemary."
"Awesome! Great recipe. I have made at least 3 times since I found in my email! If you add flour and cook for a few minutes in the butter and vegetables it makes a roux, it won't have the flour taste."
