ready bite w rice soupIn a large Dutch-oven cook the ground pork on medium-high heat until brown and crumbled. You want the meat to be in very small pieces. Turn heat to medium and remove cooked meat to a bowl, leaving the cooking fat in the pan. Add the canola oil. Add the onions and mushrooms and cook until onions are just soft, about 3-4 minutes. Return sausage to the pan.  Add the stock, milk, and soup and stir well to blend. Add the spices, bay leaves, vegetables, and wild rice.  Stir in the liquid smoke. Cook on medium-low 20 minutes, stirring frequently. At this point you can put your soup on low in a crock-pot. Grated Parmesan cheese and croutons make the perfect garnish for a bowl of this hearty soup. Be sure to remove bay elves prior to serving the soup.
