Cute Denise just emailed me this recipe. She said the soup is delicious. It sounds perfect on a cold wintry day like today. The recipe is from Taste of Home. So make this soup and try and stay warm!
1 package (6 oz.) chicken and wild rice mix
5 cups water
3 cups frozen chopped broccoli, thawed
1 medium carrot, shredded
2 tsp. dried minced onion
1 can (10-3/4 oz.) condensed cream of chicken soup, undiluted
1 package (8 oz.) cream cheese, cubed
1/4 cup slivered almonds, optional
In a large saucepan, combine the rice, contents of seasoning packet and water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring once. Stir in the broccoli, carrot and onion. Cover and simmer for 5 minutes. Stir in soup and cream cheese. Cook and stir until cheese is melted. Stir in almonds if desired. Yield: 8 servings (about 2 quarts).
