Wondering what to do with wild rice besides just boiling it? We’ve got you covered with this easy, creamy wild rice soup. With just a few basic ingredients you’ll have a warming, comfort in a bowl soup that comes together in less than an hour.

Chef Tip: The wild rice takes a while to cook. Start that first and do everything else while your rice boils.


  • Salt

  • ½ cup wild rice, rinsed and drained

  • Olive oil

  • 1 medium sized onion, diced

  • 1 stick celery, diced

  • 8 oz mushrooms, diced

  • Haven’s Kitchen Herby Chimichurri

  • ½ cup dry white wine

  • 3 cups, chicken broth

  • ¾ cup heavy cream

  • Juice of 1 lemon



In a medium saucepan, add the rice to heavily salted boiling water. Reduce the heat to medium and gently simmer, uncovered, for 40-50 minutes till the rice is tender but still chewy


While the rice is cooking, heat a glug of olive oil in a medium-large soup pot or a small Dutch oven over medium heat and add the onions and celery to it


Sauté for 5-6 minutes until the vegetables are tender. Add the mushrooms and a pinch of salt, stirring frequently for 5-6 minutes more


Add ½ a pouch of the Chimichurri and give it a quick stir. Then add the white wine and let it bubble away for a couple of minutes


Add the broth into the pot and gently simmer, uncovered, for 15-20 minutes


Add the cooked rice to the soup pot and reduce the heat to low. In a small bowl, add a ladle of your broth to the cream, allowing it to temper and slowly stir it back into the soup pot
