Makes 10 cups

1 cup wild rice (about 6 ozs)
4 cups of water
1 1/2 tsp salt
4 Tbsps butter
1 onion chopped
3 cups sliced mushrooms
1/2 cup chopped celery
1/4 cup all purpose flour
6 cups canned low-salt chicken broth

Place wild rice, 4 cups of water and 3/4 tsp salt in medium saucepan. Bring to simmer over medium heat. Cover and simmer until rice is tender, about 40 minutes. Drain and reserve.

Melt butter in heavy stockpot over medium-high heat. Add chopped onion: saute until beginning to soften, about 5 minutes. Add mushrooms and celery: saute 4 minutes. Add flour: stir 1 minute. Add chicken broth and bring to a boil, stirring until slightly thickened. Stir in reserved cooked rice, remaining 1/2 tsp of salt, curry powder, mustard, dried chervil and white pepper.
