Want a great way to use up your leftover Thanksgiving turkey? Here is one of my FAVORITE recipes. I don’t normally like mushrooms much at all, but I love this soup. It is called Wild Rice Turkey Soup, but you can use either turkey or chicken. Feel free to click on the recipe box below to print. Enjoy!
Slice 1 cup of carrots:
Slice 1 cup of celery:
Chop 1 cup of onions:
Chop 1/2 pound of mushrooms. I love my Pampered Chef chopper, but you could easily use a food processor.
Cook 1 box of wild rice according to package directions. I use Zatarains or Rice-a-Roni brands.
Bring vegetables to a boil in broth. Add herbs and bouillon. Simmer for 30 minutes. Add melted butter mixed with flour to thicken. Add 1 can of cream of mushroom soup.
Add cooked turkey or chicken and rice to soup.
Cook until heated through. Enjoy!
