Soups & stews

Creamy Wild Rice Soup
The creamy base for this soup is a pureed mix of leeks, celery, potatoes, and parsnips. This provides incredible flavor and texture without relying on cream. The cooked rice is added after pureeing to provide some contrasting texture for excellent mouthfeel.Tip: Make this dish with leftover rice from a previous meal for speedier prep.

1. Melt butter in a Dutch oven over medium-low. Saute leeks and celery until soft and just beginning to brown. Add 1 tablespoon of parsley and garlic, saute another minute or two.
2. Add chicken broth and bring to a boil. Add potatoes and parsnips and return to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until potatoes and parsnips are soft (20-30 minutes).
3. With a standard or immersion blender, puree (using small batches and extra care with a standard blender) the hot vegetable mixture, leaving some chunks. Stir in wild rice and serve garnished with remaining parsley.
