Classic Wild Rice Soup in the Instant Pot

This is THE wild rice soup to make - and hey, I'm a Minnesotan!! All the comfort in a fraction of the time! No cream soup in this!

So hey, here I am a Minnesota blogger and I have no Wild Rice Soup on my blog. Uff da. Well I do have a Wild Rice and Smoked Turkey Chowder (amazingly good and healthy!) but it’s just not the same as a Classic Wild Rice Soup, now is it? (As a quick aside, I will be posting recipes that aren’t Instant Pot and aren’t soup, it’s just been a crazy Holiday week, so if you don’t have an “IP” please bear with me!)

15 Minute Instant Pot Broccoli Cheese Soup

Broccoli Cheese Soup - So quick and easy and really outstanding. Fresh Broccoli & Cream.

I love me a good Broccoli Cheese Soup. I love it even more when it’s made in minutes, piping hot and on the table in no time at all. And love it even better, when it’s made with Cheddar for that flavor punch.

Cheesy Potato Sausage Soup – Instant Pot or Stove-top

Cheesy Potato & Sausage Soup. OMG Soooo Good! Make it thick or thinner if you'd like, add more or less cheese. Try it with Ham!!

Oh, but I do love me some soup. Especially in the fall. And since I had some sausage left after making Smoked Sausage and White Bean Soup in the Instant Pot the other day, I thought I’d make more soup, but take it in another direction.

Smoked Sausage & White Bean Soup – Instant Pot or Stove-top

This down home & classic bean soup is fantastic stove-top or in the Instant Pot!

It could very well be that I’m in denial! I am astonished each time it snows! I do live in Minnesota, but really? Snow twice last week and again the other day. But snow to me = soup, so soup it is. Again. 🙂

I’ll tell you what, we went from a few lovely fall days to fall with a vengeance here in the Twin Cities. Windy, cold & blustery.

The Original Fat Burning Cabbage Soup - makes a lot & freezes beautifully

Awhile back, someone mentioned Cabbage Soup – in a rather derogatory way. Funny thing is, I love Cabbage Soup! Which isn’t all cabbage, by the way. There’s lot’s of other good stuff in it, too.
