In this post I share my favorite soup recipes to create using left-over turkey. This is my creamy turkey, wild rice and vegetable soup recipe. Below you will find ingredient list and recipe. The wild rice and cool crop vegetables such as peas and carrots really set the soup off!
The Creamy Turkey, Wild Rice Soup Recipe
This is my favorite soup to make on Thanksgiving weekend using left over oven roasted turkey. We are usually finishing up outside chores or getting ready to decorate for Christmas so a bowl of warm soup is the best! If you do not have turkey leftovers you can also use chicken and white rice for this recipe.
Below is the list of ingredients you will need for this tasty meal. Remember when using fresh herbs you need a little more than with dried.
- Leftover Turkey
- Wild Rice
- carrots, celery and onion
- half and half
- can of cream soup (mushroom) if you want to cheat for cream!
How to make this recipe is super easy. I’ve provided notes and a printable recipe card below. I hope you consider leaving me a comment to let me know what you think of this recipe.
Am I the only one who enjoyed learning how to make a ‘roux’ for cream in jr. high? I really hope they still teach everyone how to make a soup base. This soup was inspired by that recipe along with left over turkey.
The roux recipe is super easy. In the days to come I will try and load a short video featuring how to mix this up using basic ingredients. Recipe available by request!
