Ingredients

  • 2
    tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 2
    medium stalks celery, sliced (1 cup)
  • 1
    medium carrot, coarsely shredded (1 cup)
  • 1
    medium onion, chopped (1/2 cup)
  • 1
    small green bell pepper, chopped (1/2 cup)
  • 3
    tablespoons Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
  • 1/4
    teaspoon pepper
  • 1
    pouch (from 10-ounce package) frozen cooked wild rice (1 1/4 cups)
  • 1
    cup water
  • 1
    can (10 1/2 ounces) condensed chicken broth
  • 1
    cup half-and-half
  • 1/3
    cup slivered almonds, toasted, if desired
  • 1/4
    cup chopped fresh parsley

Steps

  • 1
    Melt butter in 3-quart saucepan over medium-high heat. Cook celery, carrot, onion and bell pepper in butter about 4 minutes, stirring occasionally, until tender.
  • 2
    Stir in flour and pepper. Stir in wild rice, water and broth. Heat to boiling; reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • 3
    Stir in half-and-half, almonds and parsley. Heat just until hot (do not boil or soup may curdle).

  • If you can't find the frozen cooked wild rice, use 1 1/4 cups from a 15-ounce can of cooked wild rice. Want to cook the wild rice yourself? Heat 1/2 cup uncooked wild rice and 1 1/4 cups water to boiling in 2-quart saucepan; reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer 40 to 50 minutes until wild rice is tender.
  • For 2 grams of fat and 245 calories per serving, omit the butter and spray saucepan with cooking spray before heating. Substitute 1 cup evaporated fat-free milk for the half-and-half.
  • Top servings of this hearty soup with toasted cheese slices.
