This was a fun recipe to put together. I had always wanted to do a chicken soup recipe with rice and this one worked out perfectly. I LOVE using cabbage in soup recipes because it wilts down thus no one realizes they are eating cabbage. In my family, that is important. It’s easy to make this with some leftover chicken or turkey and if you have the wild rice on hand, your apt to have the rest of the ingredients all ready in your freezer or fridge. I was a bit hesitant to use the vinegar , but it did not have a vinegary taste at all, it really worked out. For the freezer version I would skip adding the broth in the freezer, it just took too much space and it works just as well in my cabinet. I always have plenty of chicken broth on hand and I write on the cans if they are designated elsewhere so they don’t get accidentally used. If you have other veggies on hand that you want to include in this soup, I think they will likely work quite well, it’s a great recipe that is easily adaptable. Be sure to salt and pepper the soup before serving to your taste. I hate to suggest how much salt or pepper to add, it works better to just add a bit a few times till you have the amount you want. Adding too much is so much harder to fix. Been there, done that.
