Great tasting soup seasoned with tarragon and thyme. Sliced almonds and green onion garnish are a must! I have made this with plain wild rice and it turned out just as well as using the packaged mix. I have made this for our Souper Bowlers Club at a couple times and it has been a hit.

- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
