Minnesota Wild Rice Soup Recipe

In Minnesota you can find wild rice sold everywhere. It's used in many soups, salads, casseroles, and breads. The best kind of wild rice to buy is the hand's lighter brown in color and cooks up wonderfully fluffy and delicious. Check this post on my other blog for a photo....and another great wild rice recipe!

One of my favorite recipes using wild rice is this soup. It's THICK and hardy and warms the soul in this chilly fall weather. {You can thin it out with more broth....but we like it thick} I was visiting blogs today and ran into this soup recipe too. I thought it sounded pretty good...check it out!
