Expert Tips

Instead of beef broth, use 4 cups of your own favorite broth for this recipe.

Use whole-grain wild rice for this soup; rice labeled broken or cracked loses its shape during long slow cooking.

Homemade soup makes a great lunch to tote to school or work. Transfer leftover cooled soup to single-serving plastic freezer containers and freeze for up to 6 months. Reheat the soup in the microwave.
