Broccoli Wild Rice Soup

I stumbled across this recipe at the grocery store the other day. It was being passed out as samples and my little guy gobbled it up and actually had 3 samples-oops! I decided to make it for the hubby and get his opinion. It was a hit all around! Now for those of us watching our girly figures this isn't the most figure friendly meal. However, it is super filling, so a small bowl full will fill you up, so you won't have to eat a lot. Or just make this on your free day:) I have had a lot of those lately! Broccoli Wild Rice Soup
1 pkg (6oz) chicken or wild rice mix (rice-a-roni)
5 cups water
1 pkg (10oz) frozen broccoli
1 med carrot, shredded
2 tsp dried minced onion
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 pkg (8oz) cream cheese, cubed
In a large saucepan, combine rice, seasoning packet and water; bring to boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer 10 minutes, stirring once. Stir in the broccoli, carrot and onion. Cover and simmer 5 minutes. Stir in soup and cream cheese. Stir until cheese is melted.
Serves 6-8
