Cream of Wild Rice Soup Recipe

Tender cubes of chicken, fresh vegetables and wild rice make this soup hearty enough for a meal. You can't beat the down-home comfort of a warm bowlful. I like to serve it with whole wheat rolls. —J. Beatrice Hintz, Neenah, Wisconsin

"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."

"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."
