I wanted to get our wild rice soup from the weekend down so I wouldn’t lose it.  It was a snowy weekend and this hit the spot.  I would double this for the crock pot (we have a 6 quart) and it should freeze well.  You could also add sweet potato chunks or winter squash chunks, like I did the next day.

The Recipe: Gluten and Dairy Free Chicken Wild Rice Soup

5 from 1 rating


  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 finely chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery
  • 1 cup sliced carrots
  • 1 8 oz container of slice mushrooms
  • 1 clove garlic, finely minced
  • 1 cup wild rice and rice mix, I used one from Lundberg Farms
  • 8 cups chicken broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1 Tablespoon dried parsley
  • 1 lb of cooked chicken, ripped into chunks
  • 6 Tablespoon corn starch mixed in 3/4 cup water
  • 1/2 can coconut milk


  • Over medium heat, heat oil in a large sauce pan. Saute onion, celery and carrots for about 5 minuted. Add mushrooms and garlic and saute about 2 more minutes. Add rice and saute for one more minute. Put chicken broth into the pan. Stir in salt, pepper, curry powder and parsley. Bring just to a boil, then reduce heat and let simmer.
  • When rice is cooked, add chicken and heat through. Next, while stirring soup, slowly pour in the cornstarch/water mixture. Constantly stir until soup is thickened. Stir in coconut milk.
  • Eat and smile.
  • Slow cooker instructions: Place all ingredients except cornstarch/water mixture and coconut milk. Cover and cook on low for 6 hours. Stir in corn starch/water mixture and coconut milk, cover again and turn to high. In 20 to 30 minutes, soup should be thickened. Stir and serve.

My son also has a gluten/caseine free diet. Is your child on the autism spectrum?

Yes, and she also has celiac.  When we were first told about celiac and went gluten free, we were just hoping for her to grow, be healthy and have much better poop!  Little did I realize we would be blessed with her voice and fabulous personality, too!

We were already dairy free because I have an anaphylactic allergy to dairy myself.  It turns out I am gluten intolerant also.

I like how you say ‘chicken ripped into chunks’

It sounds so vicious.

Tim, first of all its about the wild rice soup not about who bought the flowers. . . ANYWHOOOO.  .  . being new to the gf diet, I tried it out on my family and out of five, three of us really enjoyed it.  Of course, not the gf dude but that’s okay.  I am just excited that I took the time to make the soup.
