When winter weather sets in, we always welcome soup season to help keep us warm. One of the things we love most about soup is how versatile it can be, like cream-based or broth-based, meat-filled or vegetarian. Regardless of these factors, wild rice continues to be a trend among soup connoisseurs. Here are four great spins on wild rice soup—have fun testing these recipes all through soup season!
1. Antlers Wild Rice Soup
Although it says “antlers” in the name, no antlers are involved in this wonderful recipe. In fact, with a few adaptations, it would be a great option for vegetarians. The whipping cream adds even more flavor to the soup and is great for lunch or dinner during a cold day. It’s a simple recipe to make and only takes an hour from beginning to end.
2. Smoked Sausage, Butternut Squash, and Wild Rice Soup
