Wild Rice Soup Mix Thompson Farms
A delicious dish of the North. And while it is delicious, did you know that wild rice isn’t actually rice at all. It’s a high protein seed that is harvested from a aquatic grass. It looks like rice, and henceforth has been called wild rice ever since.
Ingredients: Wild rice, white rice, carrots, celery, onion, thyme, bay leaf.
