Gluten Free Dairy Free Chicken and Wild Rice Soup

My husband’s favorite soup is his mother’s creamy wild rice soup. It is loaded with butter, heavy cream, and flour, and it is an allergy nightmare, though completely delicious. He requested that I make it for an upcoming holiday party, so I dissected the original recipe and altered it to make it allergy friendly. Enjoy!



2 chicken breasts-cut into 1 inch cubes

1/3 cup olive oil

1 yellow onion, finely chopped

5 carrots, finely chopped

3 sticks celery, finely sliced

5 cups gluten free chicken broth

1/8 tsp sage

1/8 tsp rosemary

1/2 tsp pepper

2 cloves garlic minced

1/3 cup uncooked wild rice (I used Lundberg Wild Blend )

1/3 cup corn starch

1/3 cup coconut flour

1 tsp lemon zest


Cook rice according to package recommendations. Meanwhile, heat olive oil over medium heat in a large pot. Add chicken, garlic, and onions, continue to heat and stir until chicken is thoroughly cooked. Then add carrots, celery, chicken broth, sage, rosemary, and pepper, and bring to a boil. Once at a boil, reduce heat to medium, and slowly sprinkle in corn starch, stirring as you sprinkle. Once the corn starch is thoroughly mixed in, slowly add in coconut flour, stirring diligently. Finally, add in lemon zest and rice, once the rice has cooked thoroughly. Stir, then reduce heat and serve.

Serves 4-6
