Minnesota Style Wild Rice Soup

Total Time
3hrs 10mins
Prep 10 mins
Cook 3 hrs

Another Campbell's soup thing. Farmers up there have been trying to kill wild rice for a 150 years. Then they discovered that the stuff is worth $10 a pound. If you're up thataway, ask for wild rice soup, in a pea soup base. Local specialty.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a saucepan add all ingredients, and water (I use the soup cans to measure - 2 3/4 cans).
  2. Bring to a full roiling boil, and stir well.
  3. Reduce heat to simmer, and cover.
  4. Simmer for 2 and 1/2 hours.
  5. It takes that long for the wild rice to cook.
  6. Stir occasionally.
  7. Remove bay leaves after 2 hours.
  8. If it's a little thick, add a bit of water.
  9. Enjoy.

Just a great soup!! Easy to do and really tasty. I did it in the microwave. This prevented it from sticking to the bottom of the pot. Nice thick and hardy soup. Glad to add it to my recipe book.
