Crockpot Wild Rice Soup

June 21, 2017

I’ve been larger transportable meals on Sunday’s lately to last part of the week for Jim and I.  To do that, crockpot is a easy solution.  Wild Rice Soup is a good ol’ hearty Minnesotan dish.  The kind of soup you can turn upside-down and it won’t fall out:)

I already had a good wild rice soup recipe, but takes a bit of babysitting on the stove top.  This recipe is just as good, easier to make, and healthier so there ya go!

Difficulty: Easy
Prep Time: 20 min
Cook Time: 4-6 hours
Total Time: 4.5-6.5 hours
Yield: 8 servings
Taste: Great

INGREDIENTS:

2 teaspoons olive oil
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 white onion, chopped
1 cup sliced carrots (about 2-3 large carrots)
3 celery ribs, chopped
1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 1/2 pounds uncooked chicken breast, cut into bite size chunks
1 1/4 cups uncooked wild rice or wild rice blend
7 cups chicken broth, organic if desired
1/2 cup reduced fat sour cream
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
salt and pepper, to taste

PROCEDURE:

  1. Heat olive oil in a medium or large skillet over medium high heat. Add garlic, onion, carrots and celery and saute for 6-8 minutes or until onions are softened; stir in seasoning (oregano, thyme and poultry seasoning) and cook for 30 seconds longer. Transfer to crock pot.
  2. Next add in uncooked chicken breast chunks, uncooked wild rice and chicken broth. Cover and cook on low for 6-7 hours or on high for 3-4 hours.
  3. About a half hour before you are ready to serve the soup, mix sour cream and flour together in a small bowl with a fork. Turn slow cooker to high and slowly add in sour cream/flour mixture; stir for a few minutes until well combined, then place cover back on crock pot and allow to cook for 20 more minutes to allow soup to thicken up.
  4. Add salt and pepper to taste before serving. I like a little heat so a dash of cayenne or hot sauce for me.
