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!! Read More

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. Read More

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! Read More

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. Read More

Very good soup. Has a bit of a bite to it. I don't have half and half so it was probably more soupy than creamy for me. (I used 1 cup of milk instead of 2 cups of half and half). However still nice and flavorful. Bf liked it well enough but said something was missing. What I don't know bc he told me "you never make anything twice so what do you care?" I guess I've been making too many different things. Oh well. Onward more AR recipes to try! If I do come back to this maybe add some chicken and more veggies. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

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. Read More
