Cream of Wild Rice Soup


Cream of Wild Rice Soup is a tradition in Minnesota. We used to make this soup from scratch, doing lots of chopping and sautéeing, measuring and stirring. When we discovered how to streamline the prep without sacrificing any flavor, this soup mix quickly became our number one seller

Distinctively nutty wild rice paired perfectly with onions, celery, and mushrooms in a thick, rich vegetarian broth. Customers have added slivered almonds, julienned carrots, diced cooked pheasant, and splashes of sherry. Go ahead. Gild the lily!
