This is the kind of meal that comes together with help from an empty refrigerator. Usually the last two items left are a few carrots and celery. While I typically make stock, I was on a mission to use a small amount of wild rice that I found pushed to the back of my pantry.
It takes certain recipes for me to enjoy wild rice. I’ve had numerous wild rice dishes where the flavor was off. For this wild rice soup, the balance of sweet from the carrots and body from the wild rice makes for one delicious soup.
