Turkey Wild Rice Soup

Leftovers.  I love ’em but after a while I need something different.  This soup is a great way to turn leftover turkey into something new and wonderful.  Matt and I went to my hometown for Christmas and we were sent back with a variety of foods, including turkey.  We both love turkey and since we had so much, decided to make Turkey Wild Rice Soup and woo-hoo! It’s delicious and comforting on these cold winter days.  If you have leftover turkey, you gotta try this soup! You just gotta!

What To Do
In a Dutch oven (or large pot), heat butter over medium-high heat.  Add the carrots, celery and onion; cook and stir until tender.

Stir in flour until blended; cook until bubbly.  Gradually whisk in broth.  Bring to a boil, stirring constantly; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until thickened.

Stir in remaining ingredients.  Reduce heat; simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.

My Comments
YUM

 

I consider this soup pretty healthy too – turkey is good for you, wild rice is good for you, there are vegetables…half-and-half is dairy, right? 🙂

Have a great week!
