Minnesota Wild Rice Soup with Chicken, Fresh Mushrooms and Sherry

Wild rice is the state grain of Minnesota. For a very long time wild rice was a staple nourishment for the Chippewa and the Sioux. They reaped rice from kayaks and utilized long sticks to shake the grain into boats. Some Native Americans actually raise and collect rice along these lines. Be that as it may, most wild rice is raised by ranchers and gathered with goliath joins.

Wild rice is high in protein and low in fat. A little goes far. One cup of uncooked rice makes around three cups of cooked rice. You can add flavor by cooking the rice in meat, chicken, or vegetable stock. The rice tastes best when somewhat crunchy, so monitor the time. Overcooked rice is soft and looks like popcorn.
