Creamy Wild Rice Soup

I’ve been slowly cooking my way through “Super Natural Cooking” by Heidi Swanson of the blog “101 Cookbooks,” and I have to say, I love it. During this last cold and blustery week, I have particularly loved the wonderful whole grain recipes. I made this wonderful creamy wild rice soup last week, using Thai red rice instead of wild (I’m of the “use what you have” thrifty school) and it was a-maze-ing. Like, perfectly sweet yet spicy, filling without stuffing, beautiful make me happy for days amazing. I love it. And while the sweet potato croutons that sit on top are a little extra work, they really round the soup out and add another layer to the earthy flavor.
