Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice Soup
Rating (0 Rated)
If you're looking for a hearty, nutritious soup to make, this is it. Wild rice is beautiful to look at and adds great taste and texture to a lot of dishes. But, would you believe it, wild rice isn't even a grain, it's actually a grass seed. Never mind that. Not only is wild rice delicious, in its own nutty, rich way, it has about two times the amount of protein as other rices. It's also packed with more vitamins and nutrients. So, serve your friends and family something delicious. We won't tell them it's good for them, too.
