It’s soup season ya’ll! And this Gluten-Free Creamy Wild Rice and Chicken Soup is perfect for these colder months and darker days!

I get very into soup when cold weather rolls in. I mean, to be fair, I now live in Charleston, SC where “cold” weather is like, 55 degrees. Which works out very well for me, since I hate being cold.

But I still love to snuggle up to a dining room table with my family and just chat while our Christmas tree sparkles in the background – while eating soup. It’s so damn homey.

Health benefits of this Gluten-Free Creamy Wild Rice and Chicken Soup:

  • packed with protein from the chicken
  • made with homemade bone broth (recipe HERE), this soup is very healing for the gut
  • boosts the immune system via the broth, veggies, adequate protein, fiber and garlic (all of which also benefit gut health)
  • rich in antioxidants from the veggies and herbs
  • decent amount of fiber from the veggies and wild rice
  • great for gut health due to the various plants in this soup, which beneficial gut bacteria feed on
  • bone broth is high in glycine, which is the amino acid the stomach lining is mostly made up of, therefore it strengthens the gut
