Broccoli Wild Rice Soup

"My daughter relies on a boxed rice mix to get a head start on this rich and colorful soup," reports Janet Sawyer from Dysart, Iowa. "She likes to serve it to friends after football games in autumn, but it's a favorite with our family anytime of year."

    Easy and taste soup! Thank You for the recipe. If your having trouble finding Uncle Ben's wild rice mix, I used rice a roni and it works well. I did add some additional seasoning, but other wise as directed.

    Could someone please tell me what to use for the first item? I cannot find a chicken and wild rice mix! Is there a brand out there somewhere? Thanks!

    I didn't use as much broccoli, less than a cup. I also added a handful of shredded chicken and an extra cup of water, it was excellent!

    This recipe is quick, easy, and very tasty. The recipe as written is very mild, so you can of course experiment with your favorite herb and spice combinations. I opted for fresh steamed broccoli and neufch?tel cheese and low sodium cream of chicken soup. I'll be keeping this recipe handy for sure.

    Really great soup! It's a thick hearty soup. I had 2 bowls. My kids liked it too. I liked the almonds in it, but 1 of my kids didn't so I will have everyone add them in if they want in their bowls... Adding this to my soup list along with my fav on here .. cheesburger soup.
