My good friend was telling me about the Chicken and Wild Rice soup at Panera the other day. Sadly, it is not gluten free so I thought I would make some myself.
I started with Glutenfreemommy.com‘s recipe and changed it up a bit by adding mushrooms and a couple bay leafs, using heavy cream instead of milk, onion instead of leeks, and omitted the white wine. I also sprinkled some fresh thyme ontop right before serving. The addition of the fresh thyme really made this soup delicious.
