Wild Rice Soup (Recipe)
Image by Ruthieki
This soup is inspired by the legendary wild rice soup at Lutsen Resort in Lutsen, MN. It’s rich and creamy and not exactly the healthiest soup I’ve ever made, but it’s so delicious and warming that the fat content doesn’t seem to deter anyone from going back for seconds and thirds. This makes about 8-10 servings. Cut the recipe in half if you want less. It freezes very well, though, so I usually make the full batch and freeze several quarts in ziplock bags.

In a medium saucepan, combine:
1 cup Wild Rice
3 cups water
Cook rice and water together on low heat, covered, until the rice is tender, about 45 minutes.

Meanwhile, saute in butter:
1 large onion, diced
3 carrots, diced
2 potatoes, peeled and diced

2 cups chicken stock
1 cup water

Cover and cook until the potatoes and carrots are tender. Add the cooked rice,
1 cup of milk or 1/2 cup of cream
1 small brick of Velveeta cheese, cut into little pieces.
Simmer gently until the cheese is completely melted into the soup. Add more milk if the soup seems too thick.

Preserving the Recipe Box

Dailyshoot Challenge: Containers, boxes, and packages. Make a photo with one or more as a subject and illustrate what they mean to you.

Wow! There are many choices for this challenge. I settled on a nostalgic box. Do they even make recipe boxes anymore? Just make a folder on the computer and store the recipes…easier to search!

However, this fine plastic recipe box has dividers made thirty years ago by a fine young man, age four at the time. The top divider is for desserts. It has a chocolate pirate birthday cake, candy cane, and Valentine cookie decoration. The sauce card below illustrates ketchup coming out of a jar because it is sitting on a ribbon. The young man explained to make ketchup that you cut the tomatoes, cook ’em, eat ’em.

And I quote him, "Tastes good! Put on tator tots!" Thanks for the memories, Jayson!
