Minnesota Style Wild Rice Soup

READY IN: 3hrs 10mins
Recipe by John Skrable

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.

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.

  3. Reduce heat to simmer, and cover.
  4. Simmer for 2 and 1/2 hours.
