Creamy wild rice soup with a slight zest! Good for a chilly night. Perhaps a salad, bread and white wine...(a cozy fire wouldn't hurt either!) Yummy!!

Pretty good soup! I halved the recipe and didn't use celery since we didn't have it here. I did use 1 can evaporated milk and 1/2 cup skim in place of half and half. Also added a little parsley in addition to the thyme. I like pepper jack cheese, but not sure how well it fit in with this soup. Might just do cheddar if I make again or even leave it out. Overall, though, creamy and delicious. Half recipe made about 5-6 servings for use.
