What is Wild Rice?
Despite what the name might suggest, wild Rice is actually different from the types of “Rice” we commonly consume (i.e. Brown Rice, White Rice).
If you’ve never had wild rice before, you might be surprised to know is that it’s actually a type of grass.
Is Wild Rice healthy?
Wild rice is very good for you.
Along with protein and fiber, it’s also got vitamin B6, folate, magnesium, phosphorus, zinc, copper, manganese.
Wild rice is also rich in antioxidants, protein, and contains all the essential amino acids.
So, eating wild rice and especially wild rice soup is a great way to keep your body healthy when the cold weather hits.
Can I add chicken?
Well yes, but if you really wanna do so I would recommend to go with this Instant Pot Chicken And Rice Soup recipe 🙂
Do I have to pre-cook the rice?
You don’t have to cook the wild rice separately as in some soup recipes I’ve seen out there.
You cook all together in ONE pot and you’re done with it.
How long does it take?
Merely, 30 minutes and a natural pressure release.
So, no, it’s not done in the blink of an eye.
However, remember you don’t have to keep your hands on it!!
You don’t even have to be in the kitchen while the Instant Pot Chicken and Wild Rice Soup cooks itself :]
How can I make it gluten-free?
Skip the butter & flour step for the milk mixture, and just whisk some cornstarch into a saucepan with cold milk.
Heat the milk until it just barely reaches a simmer, whisking frequently, and the milk will thicken up. Once done, add it to the soup.
What else can I add to it?
There are so many other vegetables that would be great in this soup too, like cauliflower, butternut squash, spinach, kale, Pumpkin, and bell peppers.
Whatever works for you!
How to serve
Serve it with Crusty No-knead bread or with crackers and fresh salad.
