Chicken and Leek Soup with Wild Rice and Prunes Recipe

Chicken and Leek Soup with wild rice and prunes.
Fresh Parsley for the soup : out in my dome in February

When I saw parsley in the ingredients of this recipe I had to cook this up for my family.  I have tons of parsley growing in the dome this winter and I just picked up some leek seeds to try growing.  Another fun ingredient to this soup is prunes.  My husband wasn’t too sure about having prunes in his soup until he came in from the barn for lunch and the scents of leeks, chicken and wild rice cooking hit him and he couldn’t wait to fill his bowl.

[alert-note]Honestly…. Book Review Tell All [/alert-note]

I have to tell the truth.. when I got the book in the mail to do a review I kind of put it aside because it didn’t have any photos.  What kind of book doesn’t have photos of the amazing food?   I’ll tell you what kind of book.. watch the video below and you will understand the book and Author better.

Watch on Youtube on my Recipe Playlist 

I’ve cooked up close to a dozen of the recipes in this book and I now realize that if you have a good recipe you don’t need photos – only fresh ingredients!

Be sure to stop by and check out Kerry’s Website at : This Book Cooks 

[alert-note]Do you have a favorite cookbook? I’d love to hear about your favorite recipes and maybe an ingredient you wouldn’t think to find in it!

I hope you will let me know what you thought of the soup if you tried it.
