    Pismo's Note:

    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.

      My husband and I really like this soup. Great flavor with just the right amount of kick. I didn't have any almonds, but next time I will definately add some.

      I halved the recipe with great success. Actually, I didn't halve the veggies. I didn't use mushrooms because I don't like them. So I tossed in a few chopped scallions. This is a delicious MEAL. I weighed & measure the wild rice just out of curiosity: 1/2c = 3oz = 2c cooked. I will be making this recipe again!! Thanks, Pismo!
