About this recipe: This soup is simple and delicious. Wild rice is simmered in a creamy soup base. Enjoy during the cold winter months.
We enjoyed this soup. It is quite rich, but also very tasty. - 30 Sep 2000 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I LOVE this recipe and have made it several times this fall since discovering it. I tried it "as is" and then made it healthier (couldn't tell the difference) by using 2T butter and fat free half and half. I also added 2-3 cups chopped turkey or chicken, 1/2 tsp crushed dried thyme, 1/2 tsp. crushed dried parsley, fresh ground pepper. Everyone raves when I make this and I've shared the recipe with several people already. - 28 Jan 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This to me is the ultimate "comfort soup"...very rich and creamy. The rosemary is the key to the wonderful aroma of this soup. I have made this many, many times and never used to be a big fan of wild rice, but now I am! I personally changed the recipe by cutting the butter quantity in half (otherwise a lot of the butter ends up floating on the top) and I use 2% and skim milk instead of cream and also I love to add a small can of mushrooms (finely chopped). If you like creamy soups like "cream of broccoli", you will like this soup. - 09 Dec 2004 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
