Step 1: Assemble your Ingredients
To begin with, we will be making a Cream of Chicken and Wild Rice Soup. This recipe is easy and calls for ingredients that can be found in any grocery store. When making this soup, plan on about 30 minutes of hands on activity and 40 minutes of cook time. Keep in mind that once you have all of your vegetables chopped, you can start cooking and do your hands on time during your cook time.

2 lbs of baby carrots, chopped
1 head of celery, chopped
1 12 oz package of mushrooms, chopped
1 shallot, chopped
1 box of quick cooking wild rice (we suggest Uncle Bens)
1/2 cup of flour
1 8 oz container of sour cream
1 16 oz bag of frozen peas
3-4 cans of chicken broth
