creamy wild rice and carrot soup.

creamy carrot & wild rice soup

There’s nothing quite like a hot bowl of soup on cold, gray, windy days.  Having read one of the boys’ favorite stories, The Tawny Scrawny Lion, I was in the mood for something hearty like the carrot stew the little bunnies make for the lion in the story.  Maybe you remember this story from your childhood?  Here’s a little recap.  You see, the Tawny Scrawny Lion was scrawny because he was always so busy chasing every meal…elephants, monkeys, kangaroos, zebras…being a carnivore was exhausting!  So the animals decided that a little bunny should talk to the lion to see if they could work something out.  The bunny invited the lion over for dinner and when the lion found out the little bunny had 10 fat sisters and 9 fat brothers, he decided he could wait to eat that one little bunny so that he could eat them all.  But to his great surprise he found that the carrot stew that the bunnies had prepared for him left him feeling so good and full that he wasn’t even hungry for bunnies, or elephants, or monkeys, or kangaroos, or zebras…  In storybooks even lions can go vegan 😉 .

This recipe is so simple and yet so good.  And while you might think it would taste overwhelmingly of carrots, it’s actually a very mellow undertone.  My crew has requested “Tawny Scrawny Carrot Stew” several times since I made this.  I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

    Fabulous recipe!! I’m usually a recipe tweaker, not this time! Excellent and simple the first time through! Thank you for sharing! I also ordered the book off your easy link. Amazing how a fun book can entice the kiddo’s to be excited about a veggie soup… but they are! We are off to devour….

    Awesome! Sounds about like my soup from yesterday only we did cabbage instead of the rice (and we had meat in it 😉 I like your broth idea!
