Question Creamy wild rice soup

I know awhile back someone posted about a delicious creamy wild rice soup (I think with chicken and maybe mushrooms) in one of the dinner threads. I can't seem to find the recipe.

It is SO good! I've made it a lot and guests rave about it.

I've also used milk instead of cream, or part milk and part cream and it was just as good.

I add the cooked wild rice at the end. I substitute herbes de Provence for the rubbed sage and I add garlic.

Why do you cook the rice first? Can't you just cook it in the soup?

The recipe calls for cooked wild rice, added at the beginning. I cook the wild rice in my Instant Pot during the day, using the timer delay, so it's done about the same time as the soup, then I add it.

You could add raw wild rice to the soup but you'd need to add quite a bit more broth. It absorbs about 3x its volume in liquid, usually, and takes over 60 minutes to cook simmering on the stove, about 35 minutes in a pressure cooker. I'm not sure how long it would take in a slow cooker. It's possible it might not even be done after 8 hours on low.

Do you use 100% wild rice or a wild rice blend?

Yes to what soliloquy says You can absolutely add uncooked wild rice but it absorbs 3-4xs itís volume in liquiid, and you canít control how much it is ultimately going to soak up during the day, which means it can end up too thick or too thin at the end, not to mention variability in how long it can take to cook on low.

I use 100% wild rice because it does not degrade even if added to the crock pot to simmer at the very beginningó l also will add it at the end, just depending on what is going on in my kitchen w/timing. Anything else can run the risk of overcooking and getting pasty/glue-y depending on how long it simmers, though I have no doubt you can play around with it.

The real lynchpins to this recipe is keeping the liquid ratios along with the roux ratios. Beyond that there is a wide flexibility to adjust it for your taste/liking: add more or less herbs, switch around vegetables etc etc. I canít even remember the exact recipe I began with, as I continued to tweak it and tweak it until it was thick enough to our liking with a texture and flavor we like. But even with that, I canít give you measurements on how much chicken & mirepoix I put in there, or even rice...I just keep eyeballing it . The key for me is thick enough to have a coat cling to a spoon, but not so thick thatís itís like a pudding.

I use 100% wild rice. If I was going to use a blend I would definitely cook it separately and add it at the end. You could use any grain you wanted, even quinoa. Just cook it separately and add it at the end if you think it will soften too much.

ETA wild rice is very expensive. It's also very nutritious and we don't eat it all the time so I can budget for it on occasion. I grew up eating a lot of wild rice so I love having it from time to time.
