Reviews for Cream of Wild Rice Soup
"Very good and easy! I like the richness without adding any cheese...yum! Will make again and again!"
"Delicious! We had this on a cold, blustery day and it was perfect. I used Uncle Ben's herb long grain and wild rice because that's all i had, and I added mushrooms. My husband loved it. I will definitely make this again."
"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!"
