Recipe Comments & Reviews

This recipe is very good! I often make a double batch of wild rice and then freeze the other half to make another batch of soup at another date. It is very delicious and a hearty soup for winter.
This soup is loved by all of us!! (and friends when we have served it to them). I don't change anything in the recipe. I have made it with both ways - with the sherry or chicken broth if I didn't have the sherry.
This is a very good soup. Better the next day, of course! I used fat free half and half, even though I don't know how that's even possible, and chicken sausage that I browned first. Also used a ham steak that I cubed. Since I couldn't find plain wild rice, I used the Vigo pkg that contains spices mixed in. Another LOL keeper!
My family loves this soup. For the wild rice, I substitute a box of Uncle Ben's Wild rice. Other than that, I kept the recipe the same. It is very good and satisfying.
My sister made this while I was visiting her in MN and it was delicious. She left out the ham and it was still really good. I am making it tonight for my family.
I love this recipe, it is delicous! I serve this at my open house on Christmas Eve. Everyone looks forward to enoying a warm bowl of soup with all the other goodies.
