Merry merry!! We are just days (!!) away from Christmas and my holiday spirit is through the roof. It mayyyy be just a little out of hand.
To the point where my husband might lose his mind if I insist we watch just one more Christmas movie before the big day. <— No but seriously, we totally have time for more!
ANYWAY. Today’s recipe has absolutely nothing to do with the holidays. Other than the fact that when you enjoy a big ol’ bowl you feel like you are all cozy and wrapped up in a blanket and ready to enjoy everything this magical winter season has to offer.
So there’s that. My point being that this soup is total winter comfort food. But also totally healthy! Now that’s my kind of dish!
Andddd there’s the added bonus that it only takes about 20 minutes of your time to whip up. Dump everything in the crockpot and walk away. Winner winner soup-y dinner!
It’s loaded with all sorts of goodness – plenty of classic veggies (think carrots and celery!), dreamy yukon potatoes and wild rice. It gets naturally sort of creamy from the rice itself, but then we pump that up with a bit of almond milk at the very end.
It’s thick, it’s stew-like and very much a “man meal,” per my husband. Especially when served with some bread or pita chips for dunking. Swoon, swoon!!
So, let’s get to some tips & tricks for the recipe.
And that’s a wrap! Time for me to get back to those holidays movies. With a cup of hot chocolate in a Christmas mug, please and thank you.
