Freezable Wild Rice Soup

Well, folks – it’s come to this. This is our last week for our “Fill Up Your Freezer” series. I hope you’ve enjoyed it! Here are the recipes I’ve shared so far:

Today’s recipe was not supposed to be soup. But a friend shared this recipe with me, I made a triple batch, and had to share it with you. Because it’s definitely a keeper:

wild rice soup

I made this soup several weeks ago during a cold and blustery day. Soup is always best when served on blustery days, isn’t it? We ate it with Pumpkin Dinner Rolls. Delish combination. If you plan to freeze the soup, simply let it cool after cooking, then store in freezer bags. Make sure to lay your bags flat when freezing – that will save tons of space in your freezer because you can just stack the frozen soup!

This would also be a fabulous thing to freeze in quart-sized bags, so that you can easily pack a healthy, homemade lunch.

I made quite a few changes to the original recipe – because I like a little more flavor punch in my soup. So, if you want to see what the original recipe looks like, head over here. Otherwise, see below for my family’s new favorite soup recipe!

    I wanna make 4 batches of the raw ingredients in a freezer bag and put it in fridge to thaw a day before I wanna cook it. Then throw it in the slowcooker all day to cook, Will this recipe freeze and cook good when frozen without cooking first?

    hi Emilie – if you do that, wait until before you eat it to add the cream. Otherwise it might separate and taste nasty. Just cook everything in the slow cooker. Then before you eat it, add the cream and heat through. Enjoy!!
