If you like thick 'n' hearty soups, then you'll love this Lighter Chicken & Wild Rice Soup. It's full of chicken, veggies, and wild rice, so it's sure to fill ya up. And because it's made with some lighter ingredients, you don't have to worry about too many extra calories!

What You'll Need

  • 2 ribs celery, chopped
  • 2 carrots, chopped
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic

What to Do

  1. In a large soup pot over medium heat, add celery, carrots, onion, garlic, and 1/2 cup chicken broth. Saute 8 to 10 minutes, or until onion is translucent and vegetables are tender, stirring occasionally. Sprinkle in flour and continue to stir about 3 minutes.
  2. Add remaining 6 cups broth, along with rice, thyme and bay leaves; bring to a boil.

My husband and I loved this soup. It's hearty and filling, but no guilt because it's lighter.
