  • 1
    In 3-quart saucepan, melt butter over medium-high heat. Add celery, carrot, onion and bell pepper; cook about 4 minutes, stirring occasionally, until tender.
  • 2
    Stir in Bisquick mix, salt, pepper and thyme. Stir in water, broth and wild rice. Heat to boiling, stirring frequently. 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).

  • To cut down on fat and calories, spray saucepan with cooking spray before heating. Omit butter. Use Bisquick Heart Smart® mix, substitute 1 cup evaporated fat-free milk for the half-and-half and decrease almonds to 3 tablespoons.
  • To toast almonds, cook in ungreased heavy skillet over medium-low heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently until browning begins, then stirring constantly until golden brown.
