Here's that meal of wild rice soup and popovers I had planned for New Year's Eve! A day late, but definitely not short at all. :)
Wild Rice Soup is a Minnesota thing, but I frequently can't enjoy it, as it almost always contains chicken. I use this recipe as a base, adding a bunch more veggies, (using a full cup each of carrot, onion, and celery, plus three cups of mushrooms,) extra rice, and sometimes cubed seitan. With these changes, and simply swapping in vegetable broth, you get a thick, rich, veggie-packed wild rice soup that I'd bet most omnivores would happily devour, never noticing the absence of chicken!
On the side . . .
My popovers "popped over," but then they deflated a little. Hmm. They still tasted good, just weren't nearly as impressive as they could have been. Anyone have thoughts on why this could have happened?
