Serve the soup with wild rice and enjoy at hot temperature. The wild rice you can cook the options available in your market or if desired use brown or jasmine rice both are a good pairing for this recipe. Depending on your taste you can also serve without the rice. This soup is very healthy, economical and an excellent vegetarian option.  Great for a light lunch or to start a nice dinner.
