Silky and Creamy Wild Rice Soup Recipe
- 1/3 cup wild rice
- 1 cup water
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup butter
- 3/4 cup chopped onion
- 1 cup chopped celery
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 1/4 teaspoon ground white pepper
- 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 5 cups milk
step 1: Thoroughly rinse wild rice. In a saucepan bring to a boil wild rice, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and water. Reduce heat and simmer 30 to 45 minutes or until tender.
step 2: Melt butter, add onions and celery. Cover and cook gently for 5 minutes until vegetables are tender (avoid browning vegetables). Stir in 2 teaspoons salt, pepper, and flour. Remove from heat and add milk, stirring until flour is well blended.
step 3: Return to low heat. Cook, stirring constantly, until soup thickens. Add the cooked wild rice and simmer a few minutes to blend flavor. Serve hot, garnished with chopped chives.
