  • 2 shallots, thinly sliced
  • 6-8 carrots, sliced
  • 3 celery stalks, sliced
  • 1 pint white or cremini mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 small jalapeno, sliced optional
  • 5 tablespoon butter
  • cup whole wheat or GF flour
  • 8 cups chicken stock
  • 1 cup dry wild rice
  • 2 cups shredded chicken
  • ¾ cup whole milk can sub with dairy free
  • ¼ teaspoon dried thyme
  • ¼ teaspoon onion powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper


  • Melt butter in a large soup pot over medium heat. Add shallot, carrots, celery, and seasonings and sauté for 4-5 minutes, or until shallots are tender and translucent.
  • Whisk in flour and cook for another 1-2 minutes, to "cook off" flour flavor. Stir frequently to avoid burning.
  • Slowly whisk in broth, in small increments, until a slurry forms. Once all broth has been added, bring to a boil and add rice and mushrooms. Reduce heat to medium and simmer for 45-50 minutes, or until rice is tender.
  • Remove from heat and stir in chicken and milk. Stir well to combine.
