A client requested Wild Rice Soup, please. I responded “sure”. Then I searched some of my favorite online recipe sites. had a likely candidate, Wild Rice Soup III, submitted by Diane. I adapted it for a pressure cooker, as I often do. Why take an hour to cook something delicious and healthful, when it can be done in 15 minutes? That is all the time it takes to produce tender wild rice, and really tender chicken breast. To finish the soup, cube the chicken and add more liquid. Bone-in chicken is very budget friendly, as is cooking quickly in a pressure cooker. This is a very useful skill to know. For other recipes, you can shred it (enchiladas), or dice it (salad or casseroles). I am sure you have many other ideas for cooked chicken. I remove the skin before cooking so the finished dish is less oily. And I still enjoy a few yellow globules of rich chicken fat, just enough for my tastes. Cooking a whole grain and veggies with the chicken streamlines your efforts. And I often use a frozen blend of onion, celery, and pepper. It goes straight into the pot frozen, no dicing required. You still have to dice the carrots though. Or you can use any combo of these veggies fresh, to total 4 cups. This can make a fine broth based soup. Omit the milk and add more water and gluten free flavoring base, or packaged broth. Be sure to read the labels. Of course, this soup is successful from scratch on the stove top. Those notes are below. And it is also a good way to use up leftover chicken or wild rice. *chuckle* Most people probably do not have extra cooked wild rice in the fridge. But if you do, you are half way to a steaming bowl of soup. Cook it once, serve twice, or more This soup freezes well. So make a big batch, to enjoy now and later.
