I used Uncle Bens Wild Rice. It came with a spice packet. I wasn't sure if I was supposed to put it in. I did, and I loved this "soup." It was more like a stew. I didn't add the chicken, and I don't think it needed it. I will add a little water next time.
Absolutely delicious and very easy to put together. I had everything on hand and didn't need to go to the store :) I really liked the fresh sage flavor. I made two changes. I added some diced celery and used pre-cooked (leftover) chicken, which made it even easier!
A truly delicious soup and the aroma while it was cooking was just divine. :) I doubled the recipe, then used proportionally more sliced mushrooms (I adore mushrooms). I also added 4 cloves of crushed garlic, 2 finely sliced leeks and some fresh thyme. I served this to my lunch guests today as a starter, topped with a dollop of creamy Greek yoghurt rather than the cream - and didn't let on that there was more in the fridge. They loved it and asked for the recipe. Thank you so much for sharing yet another of your yummy recipes, Boomette. I'm looking forward to eating some of what's left! This is a soup that I know that I'll be making again and again, and one that I'm sure will taste even better if left for a day or two. Made for 1-2-3 Hit Wonders.
I omitted the chicken but this still turned out tatsy and creamy. My DH loved it Will make again Made for Photo Tag March 2009
