This is a good recipe for using that leftover ham. To make this really easy on yourself use fully cooked frozen wild rice from the market. I like “Canoe Wild Rice” a Canadian product- with no additives.

2 cups cooked wild rice

32 ounces low sodium beef broth

1 cup diced ham or cooked chicken

1/2 cup small diced carrots

1/2 cup small diced red onion

1/2 cup red wine

2 T chopped parsley

2 T olive oil

1/2 cup heavy cream

salt and pepper to taste

Heat the olive oil in a large soup pot on medium heat. Add the chopped carrots and saute for a few minutes. Add the onions and again saute for a few minutes more- frequently stirring.

Add the stock and wine and reduce to a low simmer and cover and cook for about 30 minutes until the veggies are very soft. Add the rice and ham and simmer for 5-10 minutes. Add the cream and adjust for salt and pepper. Warm through. Sprinkle the parsley in right before serving.
