“I threw this together to use up some leftover cooked wild rice. Be sure to use a good quality paprika -- the one I used was Hungarian sweet paprika, but I already have plans to try with hot or smoked paprika when I make this again. If you try it, let me know how it turns out!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat the oil over medium heat in a 3-quart soup pot. When hot, add the onion and garlic and cook until softened and translucent, about 3 minutes. Stir frequently If they start to brown, turn the heat down and stir.
  2. Add the tomatoes, stock, paprika, and thyme to the pot and mix well. Break up the tomatoes a little bit with a spoon. Bring the mixture to a boil, then turn the heat down to medium-low, cover, and simmer for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. If you want a smooth tomato broth with wild rice, let the soup cool and puree in a blender or with an immersion blender. I like it a little chunky, so I just mash up the tomatoes really well with a spoon.
  4. Add the wild rice and season to taste with salt and pepper. Let the soup simmer for another 5 minutes or so, and serve. Enjoy!
