MN Wild Rice Soup


  • 1 cup wild rice

  • 2 tablespoons butter

  • 2 stalks of celery, diced (about ⅓ cup)

  • 1 medium yellow onion, diced (about ½ cup)

  • 2 large carrots, diced (about ⅓ cup)

  • 3 cups vegetable broth

  • 1 small bundle of thyme (optional)

  • 1 cup evaporated milk

  • 1 teaspoon salt (or to taste)


  1. Cook the rice according to the package directions.

  2. In a large pot, heat the butter over medium heat for 30 seconds or until melted.

  3. Add the celery, onion, and carrots and cook for 5 minutes over medium heat, stirring frequently.

  4. Add the broth and thyme and bring to a boil.

  5. Reduce heat to simmer and cook for 15 minutes.

  6. Remove the thyme stems from the pot.

  7. Add the cooked wild rice, evaporated milk and salt. (Note: if your rice isn’t ready yet, simply turn off the heat of your soup pot and then resume cooking once the rice is ready to be added.)

  8. Cook over low-medium heat until heated through. If you let this sit before serving, the rice will continue to absorb the broth. Simply add ½ cup of water and stir until you reach the desired consistency.

  9. Add additional salt to taste, if needed.
