A hearty, yet fresh soup is just what you need for the cool spring evenings. Mushrooms, carrots, celery stalks and more come together for a wonderful blend of flavors. Try this wild rice soup for a light and creamy dinner staple.




  1. In a large heavy-bottomed saucepan, combine the butter, carrots, celery, and onion and cook over medium-high heat. Cook until the vegetables begin to soften and the onion is translucent. Add the chicken broth, mushrooms, and bay leaf and bring to a boil.
  2. Add the wild rice, reduce the heat to low, and simmer for 30 minutes or until the rice is tender but still chewy. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Add in the chicken and half-and-half; stir for 3 minutes to heat through. Remove from the stovetop and remove the bay leaf. Let cool for 3 minutes and serve.
