Veggie Wild Rice Soup with Sausage

Oh my goodness... this soup is delicious. It got rave reviews from my entire family!

2 tbsp olive oil
1 onion, diced
7-8 celery stalks, diced
3 carrots, peeled and diced
1 lb Italian sausage
1 tsp salt
1.5 tsp paprika
6 cups chicken broth
2 cups cooked wild rice (I had a prepackaged mix of white/wild rice)
1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
1/4 tsp black pepper
2 tsp basil

In a large stockpot, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion, celery, and carrot; cook until start to soften. Add sausage and break up while it cooks. Add salt, paprika, and chicken broth. Bring up to a boil, then reduce heat to simmer, covered, for 15 minutes. Stir in the wild rice, parsley, pepper, and basil. Simmer for 5 more minutes.

*Be sure to have gf chicken broth if making gluten free
