Turkey and Wild Rice Soup

Turkey and Wild Rice Soup

Ready in 1 hour

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! "

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.

Fabulous 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!
