Turkey & Wild Rice Soup

Turkey & Wild Rice Soup

2 quarts of chicken broth (I used 4 cans)

1/2-1 lb fresh mushrooms, roughly sliced

1 cup chopped celery

1 cup chopped carrots

1/2 onion, chopped

1 tsp chicken bouillon granules

1 tsp dried parsley

1/4 tsp garlic powder

1/4 tsp dried thyme

1/4 cup butter

1/4 cup flour

2-3 cups cooked wild rice or brown rice ( I use one box of Wild Rice Mix that comes with the seasoning packets...cook as directed minus adding the seasoning)

2-3 cups chopped cooked turkey (or you can use chicken)


In a large sauce pan combine broth, veggies, seasoning and bouillon. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer for 30 mins. In a dutch oven or stockpot melt butter, stir in flour while stirring constantly. Gradually add broth into the flour mixture while whisking (I add about 1 cup of broth). Bring to a boil...continue whisking, carefully pour the remaining soup mixture, stir in rice and turkey. Bring back to a boil just long enough to heat the rice and turkey.

**I like adding a bit of fresh cracked pepper before eating**
