A great way to use up leftovers of your holiday turkey.
Tip: I often carve leftovers of a turkey on a large cutting board near the stove, with 1 large stockpot on the stove for this soup (second best pieces), 1 plastic storage container bound for the fridge (best pieces), and 1 stockpot to make turkey stock (bones and carcass, and otherwise unsalvagable pieces). Makes sorting much easier, and you end up with 3 usable dishes with nothing wasted.
"Very easy to make! I added peas. Good taste, but the Thyme was a little overwhelming. I used whole grain brown rice bc I had no wild rice in my pantry. Next time I make it, I will only use 2 TBSP of thyme & 1/2 of salt...maybe celery. I will definitely make it again! "- Groovymamma78

Place stock in a large stockpot, and bring to a low simmer. Do not bring it to a rapid boil. Add potatoes, wild rice an carrots, simmer covered for 30 minutes. Add remaining ingredients (except cream) and simmer for another 15-30 minutes, or remove from heat to cool for storage in the fridge. Try this with a little cream mixed in, or straight up if you prefer clear broth (pictured). Optional green additions: peas, green beans, italian parsley, and more.

ElleApps 1 year agoFabulous recipe. Used leftover turkey from Xmas and brown, long grain wild rice ... Added yellow onion ... Delish!! Took over an hour to make - rice needed more time. A soup we'd totally make again!
