At first, wild rice sounded a bit odd to me in a breakfast dish, but I decided to try it (as I am a bit odd myself). If you want to start your day with a different grain, this is a great choice.
This homey soup is hearty and simple. The original recipe is from damndelicious.net; I adapted the version offered by The Candid Appetite. Dicing the vegetables means the soup cooks faster, making it a good weeknight meal for busy people.
We really like this flavorful soup. It’s easy and tastes like you’ve worked much harder than you have. That makes it perfect to whip up for friends or family in need of a little TLC.
I found this recipe in Jason Roberts’ Good Food Fast while I was looking for breakfasts that could be made ahead and assembled quickly by me and our early-rising house guest.
