This is one recipe that will surely remind you of home. This soup has been served whenever we go and visit our grandparents in their house. It’s everyone’s favorite—my aunts’, my uncles’, my parents’, and even my picky eater cousins. It’s not just about the taste; it’s about the feeling we all got when we eat it together.
One of our friends from Taste of Home has this to say about this recipe:
“I’m originally from Minnesota, where wild rice grows in abundance and is very popular in recipes. This soup has been part of our Christmas Eve menu for years. To save time, I cook the chicken and wild rice and cut up the vegetables the day before!”
Wild rice tastes good in several country recipes. There are several you can find online that will get you to love it even further. Also, thank you for that suggestion, my friend! Holidays are indeed busy days; and we do need every free minute we can get.
