I was cleaning out my pantry this weekend and came across a box of Creamy Wild Rice Soup Mix by Maggie’s and Marry’s. The first time I tried wild rice I cooked it with some tilapia I had in my freezer. I was expecting it to taste much like the white or Jasmin rice, the kind that takes a few mins to boil or comes in the instant packs. The earthy taste of the wild rice was much different then what I was expecting and I was not a fan. I debated giving the mix away but the package claimed to be award winning and decided to give wild rice a round 2 and I am so glad I did. Veggies, creamy chicken and wild rice come together in a taste that I am sure will delight your pallet. If you cannot cook have no fear because this recipe is easy.
1) In a large kettle combine the soup base the 6 cups of hot water
2) Add the wild rice/veggie mix and stir
3) Let simmer for 45 mins stirring on occasion
Easy right? This recipe certainly changed my mind on wild rice and certainly would be good for any sort of company.
