This Minnesota Wild Rice Soup is creamy and delicious with a rich broth and hearty wild rice. Perfect for a chilly winter evening!



  1. Cook the rice according to the package directions.
  2. In a large pot, heat the butter over medium heat for 30 seconds or until melted.
  3. Add the celery, onion, and carrots and cook for 5 minutes over medium heat, stirring frequently.
  4. Add the broth and thyme and bring to a boil.
  5. Reduce heat to simmer and cook for 15 minutes.
  6. Remove the thyme stems from the pot.
  7. Add the cooked wild rice, evaporated milk and salt. (Note: if your rice isn’t ready yet, simply turn off the heat of your soup pot and then resume cooking once the rice is ready to be added.)
  8. Cook over low-medium heat until heated through. If you let this sit before serving, the rice will continue to absorb the broth. Simply add ½ cup of water and stir until you reach the desired consistency.
  9. Add additional salt to taste, if needed.
