Soup and Salads
The first time I had Chicken and Wild Rice Soup was when we went out to University of Minnesota for a college visit. I have looked and tried so many recipes, but this came as close to the taste I remember from the visit!
3 1⁄2 cups homemade chicken broth
1 cup sliced carrot
1⁄2 cup sliced celery
1⁄3 cup wild rice
1⁄3 cup sliced onion
1⁄2 teaspoon dried thyme
2 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons flour
1 cup half-and-half cream
1 1⁄2 cups cut-up cooked chicken (I used turkey)
Mix broth, carrots, celery, uncooked rice, onions, thyme, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.
Bring to a boil; reduce heat, cover and simmer 1 hour, until the rice is tender.
Melt butter, stir in the flour, then the half-half.
Cook and stir 1 minute. Slowly add half-half mixture to the rice mixture, stirring constantly. Stir in the chicken (turkey) and heat through.
Taste the difference that natural raising and humane treatment can make to the taste of pork. 100% bred, raised and processed in the United States!
