DIRECTIONS

  • Mix all dry ingredients. This is the mix. It will keep indefinitely as long as it is dry, so it's a great pantry item for a busy weekday night.
  • Put in pot and add 2 quarts liquid (I love chicken broth, but you could use vegetable broth, beef broth, or 1/2 broth and 1/2 water. I've never tried all water, as I expect that would be rather bland, but you could use that, as well.)
  • Add tomato paste if you are using it (highly recommended). Add carrots and celery if you are using them.
  • Bring to a boil, then simmer till wild rice has split and peas just about fall apart, about 1 1/4 hours.
  • Add canned items, as well as any leftover vegetable and meat that you are using, just enough to heat through.
  • Wonderful with Parmesan or Romano cheese grated over it.
  • You can also ladle into a microwave safe bowl, add an egg and cook in microwave until the egg is softly poached -- then stir the egg into the soup till creamy. Yum!
