This is such a delicious soup, my husband absolutely loves it! It is hearty enough to be a meal on its own. Sometimes I use whole milk instead of half and half to lighten it up, but it is not the same.

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.
