Tips

Expert Tips

Cream of mushroom or chicken soup can be used instead of the cream of celery.

To quickly thaw frozen vegetables, rinse them under cold, running water. All frozen veggies should be thawed before using them in a slow cooker recipe.

One cup of uncooked wild rice cooked in three cups of water yields 4 cups of cooked rice. It can take up to an hour to cook wild rice on the stove.
