Chicken and Bacon Wild Rice Soup

One thing is pretty clear. My massive sweet tooth has definitely taken over this site. When I started out blogging I had no idea where this journey would take me. Everyone around me could have predicted the outcome since I’m pretty much known for my desserts by our family and friends. I was clearly in denial – not because I don’t like baking and creating sweet treats or being known for them, but because I like cooking just as much. Don’t worry, desserts and sweet delights will continue to take center stage with savory bites here and there, but today I needed to bring you this fabulous soup. Another thing I adore to make, especially during the colder months, is soup. I love soup and can’t think of anything more comforting than a warm bowl of deliciousness with a crusty piece of bread on the side.

Minnesota is known for Wild Rice. Pretty much everyone here has their own version of Wild Rice Soup and it’s a huge favorite in our house as well. It’s hearty, filled with wholesome grains and super creamy (even without the addition of dairy). I added bacon because, well, do I really need an explanation? Everything is better with bacon and that statement holds definitely true for this soup. It’s perfect!

Homemade Cream of Condensed Soup

Homemade Cream of Condensed Soup by Deliciously Yum!

In preparation of tomorrow’s blog post I decided to show you exactly how I make my own Cream of Condensed Soup. I stopped using the store-bought kind about two years ago and have not looked back since. It’s a win win in our house on so many levels. My recipe has only 4 ingredients and takes almost no time to make. It is so versatile and can produce any condensed soup you’re in need of celery, chicken, mushroom, tomato and the list goes on and on. We will be using a “can” of condensed cream of chicken soup in tomorrow’s recipe, which is what I made here.

You won’t need to keep various cans stocked in your pantry anymore and you’ll definitely be saving some money. I did the math and figured out that the homemade version comes to about 88 cents per can, which is almost half the price of the one you can purchase at the store. Another reason why I make my own condensed soup is that my husband is lactose intolerant which I have mentioned in previous posts. I use almond milk instead of regular milk to produce creamy yet lactose-free dishes for my husband to enjoy. It works like a charm! Feel free to customize the recipe to your dietary needs.
