Chicken and Wild Rice Soup

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by SweetPeaNC

From Better Homes and Gardens: "A favorite of Northern kitchens, this hearty wild rice soup is easy to prepare. The tender wild rice cooks in a vegetable blend of carrots, celery, leeks, and thyme while you prepare the creamy base flavored with the rich and sweet taste of dry sherry. Garnish with slices of tender carrots and serve with freshly baked whole wheat bread."

Amazing! I made it twice in a week, and then shared it with my family who also loved it. Will definitely be making this often.
