Boy am I glad I did! It comes together in a snap, but no one would ever guess. It tastes amazing, and my whole family loved it. I never would have thought to garnish soup with almonds, but I love the crunch they add.

We love garnishing this Wild Rice Ham Soup with sliced almonds. They add a yummy crunch!

I served it with Garlic Knots, and it was a delicious meal. The only bad part is that we ate every drop, so we had no leftovers for lunch the next day. Next time I make it, I will be doubling the recipe for sure. 🙂

I have learned to make a double batch of this Wild Rice Ham Soup if I want any leftovers. My family loves it. An easy soup recipe for hectic nights!
