Northwoods Wild Rice Soup

Recipe by tmkrueger

We serve this soup on Christmas eve when food is supposed to be rich and filling. It's great anytime of year, though! I personally recommend using MN wild rice. It adds the rich nuttiness that makes this soup a winner.

This is an AWESOME soup ~ I used the turkey carcass from Thanksgiving to make the broth and got about 3 cups of shredded turkey off of it. I then added the other ingredients (except the ham - personal preference) and cooked for 1 hour. Added potato starch instead of flour as the thickener ~ this was a very flavorful soup, the mouthwatering aroma filled the house. I used Lundberg Organic Wild Rice. WONDERFUL! Thanks tmkrueger ~ I've been wanting to make this recipe for a while, and ZAAR COOKBOOK TAG was the event! November 2009
