Clam and Wild Rice Soup

Clam and Wild Rice Soup started off as clam chowder but after the addition of cooked wild rice it was transformed into this super delicious soup. Don’t let the long list of ingredients scare you off. I need all the blog followers I can get here!! Plus, you might hurt yourself running in the other direction:) Instead, read through the ingredients more closely. Many of the ingredients you no doubt have on hand. Canned clams?? I know what your thinking, but they work great in this recipe. Promise.


A Few

This recipe has several fresh vegetables that are sautéed in butter; chopped mushrooms, diced celery, shredded carrots, chopped onions, green pepper and minced garlic. Flour is whisked in, along with chicken broth. Wild rice, cream of mushroom soup and a can of clams is tossed in. A few seasonings and evaporated milk is added and within an hour you’ll be sitting down to a steamy bowl of soup. Don’t forget the oyster crackers!
