This is a delicious soup combining kumara and wild rice. If you substitute with vegetarian stock it is a vegan recipe.
I added fresh garlic which I sauteed with the onion a bit before using. I also omitted the wild rice (to reduce carbs), used an entire quart of chicken broth, and pureed the soup before serving. To each serving I then added a dollop of plain nonfat yogurt, toasted slivered almonds, and fresh thyme leaves. This was a perfect autmnal soup. - 20 Oct 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
SO YUMMY!!!! My husband and I really enjoyed this hearty vegetarian soup. I did add 3-4 more cups of chicken broth, an extra 1/2 pound of yams, a rice mixture with wild, brown, and white rice and only used 1/2 an onion and it was delicious! I also left out the onion powder since I didn't have any. I will make it again for sure! - 06 Jan 2005 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
This was very good - I didn't have wild rice, so substituted brown rice and added it in at the beginning with all other ingredients. Moderately spicy, depending on the curry powder used. - 06 Dec 2005 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
