Recipe for Holly Clegg's Wild Rice Soup. This hearty and great tasting soup can be the answer to leftover chicken or holiday turkey.


  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped peeled carrots
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 cups canned fat-free (or homemade) chicken stock
  • 1 (6-ounce) package long grain and wild rice
  • 1 cup chopped cooked chicken or turkey
  • 3 tablespoons sherry


  1. In a large pot coated with nonstick cooking spray, sauté the onion and carrots over medium heat until tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in the flour. Gradually add the broth and let the mixture come to a boil, stirring constantly. Meanwhile, prepare the rice according to package directions, omitting any oil and salt. Add the cooked rice and cooked chicken and simmer 5 minutes. Add the sherry. If the soup gets too thick, add more chicken broth or water. Boil 1 minute and serve.
