Wild rice and onion soup

August 24, 2011 2:42 pm Published by Leave your thoughts

This recipe uses up leftover wild rice. The combination of onions and rice works well, and when served with cheese-topped bread, makes a full meal in one pan, with minimum washing-up and maximum ease. This is robust soup, so you could add other leftovers, such as chicken, to good effect.


  1. Sauté the onions in butter over a medium heat for 15 minutes, stirring frequently. Continue cooking at a low temperature to caramelize the onions (approximately 45 minutes).
  2. Season with salt and pepper. Add half of the stock and simmer uncovered for 15 minutes. Add the cooked wild rice and more stock as necessary, simmer for 5 minutes, then remove from the heat and stir in the port.
  3. Top each serving with 3 bread slices, sprinkled with cheese. Place under the grill to melt the cheese.
    Serve immediately.
