I was cleaning today and found many recipes from my younger years....they are funny, most of them are in the trash. Sorry, no need to laugh when I'm rich and famous.
Here is one of the recipes. I know I've made it and I made it a few times, but not in the last 6 years...minimum. So any recollection of what worked and what didn't are out the door until I try again.
This is a nice hearty soup for the fall.
Wild Rice Soup
Servings: Unknown, can't remember
1 cup cooked, cubed chicken
3 TB Butter
3 TB Flour
1/2 cup of celery, diced, medium pieces
1/2 cup carrot, diced, medium pieces
1/2 medium onion, diced, medium pieces
Salt & Pepper, to taste
2 cups milk
1 can broth, chicken or veg
1 cup wild rice, cooked
Melt butter and over medium high heat, saute onion, celery and carrot until tender. Sprinkle the flour over evenly. Add the broth, whisking. It will thicken pretty quickly. Add the milk, stir until thickened, add the rice and chicken. Heat until warmed through.
Easy right? From what I remember it was. For some people, it might be nice to try some other hearty fall veg, or mushrooms. I'm guessing it will be two to four servings. Make sure when you cook your wild rice to season it appropriately. If I remember correctly, the rice was the most bland thing in this when I made all those years ago.
