  • 1
    In 4-quart saucepan, heat broth, wild rice and 1/4 teaspoon of the salt to boiling over high heat. Stir; cover, and reduce heat to low. Cook about 45 minutes, without lifting cover, until rice is tender but still firm.

    Meanwhile, in 12-inch nonstick skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat. Add onion, carrot, celery and remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt. Cook 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently, until vegetables begin to brown. Add mushrooms; cook 3 to 5 minutes or until mushrooms brown and soften. Add thyme and flour. Cook 1 to 2 minutes, stirring constantly, until flour begins to brown and smells nutty. Add water; simmer 5 minutes, stirring frequently.

    Stir vegetable mixture into wild rice mixture. Stir in chicken and cream; heat to a simmer over high heat. Reduce heat; simmer 3 minutes to heat through and combine flavors. Divide among 6 bowls, and top with more fresh thyme, if desired.

Expert Tips

  • Make sure those mushrooms really start to brown before adding the flour. Color equals flavor.
  • Prefer pork instead of chicken? Ham makes a great substitute in this soup.
