9 servings (serving size: 1 1/3 cups soup and 1 teaspoon cheese)

This soup is a combination of Italian turkey sausage, wild rice, spinach, and fresh herbs. Store any leftovers in the freezer for future meals.

How to Make It

Step 1

Bring 1 1/2 cups water to a boil in a medium saucepan. Add wild rice; cover, reduce heat, and simmer 1 hour or until tender. Set aside.

Step 2

Cook the sausage in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat until browned; stir to crumble. Drain sausage; set aside.

Step 3

Heat oil in Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add onion, and sauté for 3 minutes. Add garlic, and sauté for 1 minute. Add the sausage, 3 cups water, and the next 5 ingredients (water through tomatoes); bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer for 20 minutes. Stir in cooked wild rice, spinach, salt, and pepper. Ladle soup into bowls; sprinkle with cheese.

I used brown rice and Italian seasoning instead of basil. So good, this will be one of my favorites!

This is a favorite in our home! It freezes really well, and since everyone I have served it to loves it, it has become a staple on the menu when we have family or friends staying with us.

I really enjoyed this recipe. Its fast and easy once the rice is done. I used the insides from three mango chicken sausages from the co-op. I also used all fresh basil from the garden instead of dried herbs. When I make this again I'll add more rice and a variety of veggies.

The 1/2 cup is = to the reese's box, I also used the prep directions on the box. Can make it ahead, like the night before even.

This soup is really good! I added carrots and celery and increased the spinach and wild rice a little. Will make again! It would also be good with ground beef or flavored chicken sausage.
