1/1 Photo of Famous Dave's Wild Rice Soup
I got this recipe from my cousin who made it for our Christmas party this year. I don't usually like soups with rice in them but I could not believe how good this was! Don't forget the almonds, it's not the same without em! Note: The wild rice takes about 45 minutes to cook.
