Creamy Chicken Wild Rice Soup
A couple years ago, a group of us started doing lunch dates at a local restaurant. We’d meet there for much-needed cathartic community exhaling. And soup. Plenty of hot, comforting bowls of soup [with rustic bread for sure.]
The group fave was a Creamy Chicken Wild Rice Soup we devoured while talking faith, life, and Spanx. Not in that order.
Nowadays, I make this lighter version of Creamy Chicken Wild Rice Soup that allows for triple servings because there’s no trace of heavy cream.
This year when I was asked to make an army-sized batch of Creamy Chicken Wild Rice Soup for an event that included gluten-free eaters, I tweaked this chicken wild rice soup to be gluten-free. Because nobody should have to sit out this soup…
Use Cornstarch instead of flour
One of the most popular ways to thicken soup is through the roux.
Flour and butter get whisked like nobody’s business in a hot pan and tossed into the soup for a bit of thickening magic. After exploring GF thickener alternatives, it was cornstarch that nailed it.
GF flour often has a grainy texture or flavor, but not so with cornstarch. And pretty much everyone already has it in their kitchen.
This Creamy Chicken Wild Rice Soup is ultra creamy, teeming with flavor, and loaded with all the good stuff.
We think you guys will be instantly hooked, GF or not. Time to get your soup on.Print
