Perfect. I didn't use chervil because it's not something I normally have and I didn't want to go to the store but next time I might spring for it to see what it's like. This soup is far better than the ever-popular Creamy Chicken & Wild Rice Soup from this site - and just as easy in my opinion. I added about 2 cups of cooked diced chicken to this because I made it for someone who needs a lot of protien in her diet - but it's also wonderful as is. Thanks!!

I had problems with this. 1st the sherry was way to overpowering. and I found it flavorless so i doubled all the spices and we still couldn't taste the curry. it was not hot and spicy at all. it was a good soup but not at all what I was expecting based on others reviews. I would make it again without the sherry.

The flavor is marvelous. I substituted 1 1/2 cup of 1% milk and 1/2 cup half-and-half and the soup still came out rich and creamy. There is no amount of water given for the wild rice; I followed the directions on the box. Instead of 20 min for the rice my box said 50 so I let it cook longer.

This would be good with some chicken added to it. Next time I will do that and also cut back on the butter. I used a fat free half and half since it was what I had on hand. That may have given a slightly less creamy texture. Nothing is better in the fat free version! lol! Next time I will also cut the amount of curry in half and use chicken stock instead of vegetable. Good recipe though!

Supurb! I incresed the porpotion of broth and decreased the cream and it was silky & delicious. Also used lemon juice instead of sherry and added shredded cooked chicken. Perfect for the cold weather.

This is Wild Rice Soup.I put some ham in it and it was the best. This is a regular every Sunday when the guys watch the Vikings. Now if there was only a recipe for them.

I added carrots and cabbage since I didn't have enough cabbage. Using whole wheat flour i made the roux with the veggies using soy milk. It was strange to strongly smell the sherry but taste the spicy herbs! It is a satisfying soup.

I did throw in some cooked chicken and used chicken broth rather than vegetable. My husband said he would have liked this better if it had been creamier. Thought the broth was a bit lite.

DELICIOUS!!! Didn't add as much curry but did add a little garlic. My whole family loved it - even my boyfriend. Will definitely make this again!
