This was a super delicious soup, and it's so quick to prepare, too. It has a rich depth of flavor with earthy (almost nutty-like) tones. The soup's creamy base is thick but smooth, and the ham, wild rice and other ingredients contribute a lot of flavor and made for a very nice lunch. I served it with a warmed baguette cut into thin slices (to scoop up all the delicious soup bits), and it was filling, tasty and satisfying. Thank you, Mikekey.
