Soup Day - New Recipe

I made a new soup today - that is where my creativity was - I hope you enjoy it. The soup is off the Taste of Home Recipe site - I get a weekly mailing from them - here is the link if you would like to sign up Taste of Home Menu Saver I promise I will post some new cards some day.

Chicken Wild Rice Soup


2 quarts chicken broth
1/2 pound fresh mushrooms, chopped
1 cup finely chopped celery
1 cup shredded carrots
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
1 teaspoon chicken bouillon granules
1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed cream of mushroom soup, undiluted
1/2 cup dry white wine or additional chicken broth
3 cups cooked wild rice
2 cups cubed cooked chicken

Directions: In a large saucepan, combine the first nine ingredients. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 30 minutes. In a soup kettle or Dutch oven, melt butter. stir in flour until smooth. Gradually whisk in broth mixture. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Whisk in soup and wine or broth. Add rice and chicken; heat through. Yield: 14 servings (3-1/2 quarts).

Sounds very yummy, Barb. We're having chilly, dreary weather and a bowl of that would be perfect! I don't think I've ever met a bad "Taste of Home" recipe! So glad you've got a spot on Net now. I'll be visiting often. Anna
