What’s Cookin’ – Chicken Wild Rice Soup (gluten free)

Colder weather means it’s time to break out the soup recipes.  I adapted this recipe so that it would be gluten free for my sister who lives in Minnesota and supplies me with wild rice.

Wild rice is actually a grass that grows in the cold water lakes and streams of Minnesota and Canada.  It is high in protein and naturally contains no gluten.  The latest batch of wild rice that I received came from Bemidji, Minnesota.  Bemidji, Bemidji, Bemidji - love the way that sounds.

Notes:  Don’t be intimidated by soups.  They are easy and flexible.  If you cut up a carrot and it’s over 1/2 cup.  Don’t worry, be happy – just throw it in there!  If you decide to use a rotisserie chicken or some other baked chicken and you have more or less than 13 ounces.  Don’t worry, by happy – just throw it in there!  No one will ever know that you didn’t use exact measurements.  The very reason I adapted this recipe is so that it matched the most commonly available ingredients and sizes.

This is a nice, thick, creamy soup.  The carrots and almonds add a nice and interesting crunchiness.  Very satisfying.
