Wild rice soup is a comforting, wholesome and hearty dish that is a prefect dinner on a cold winter night. Wild rice has a nutty and chewy texture. I personally love the texture of this wild rice and used to make this often during my stay in MN, USA. This soup is a blend of wild rice, cream and a bunch of vegetables making this a complete and satisfying meal. If you get a chance to try this wild rice, be sure to try this creamy and delicious Wild Rice Soup.
