Duck Soup With Brown Rice and Yams

READY IN: 2hrs 5mins
Recipe by Lorac

Duck and rice in a savory broth, offset with the sweetness of yams and green peas. Hearty enough for a main dish. If you can get a large (6 pound) duck, cut off the breast and save it for another recipe.

Very tasty combination. I made and used actual duck broth for this from a carcass (along with some purchased chicken broth to make up the difference) and wild rice, and it was awesome.
