This is a great soup to use up that extra turkey. I tweeked this recipe a little, for my own use. I really like cream based soups, so this is right up my alley.

How to Make Turkey Wild Rice Soup


  • 1Chop the carrot, celery, and onion into small pieces.
    (I like to put carrots and onion in my small food processer and mince.)
  • 2Select a large pot, and put in enough olive oil to just cover about 1/2 the bottom (you can alway add more if needed)
    Set on medium heat.
    Add minced carrot, celery & onion.
    Stir often and cook for about 10 minutes.
    Add chicken broth and 2 cups of water.
    Add rice (I like to use 1/2 wild rice and 1/2 white rice).
    Bring to a boil and simer until rice is tender, 35 to 40 minutes.
  • 3Meanwhile, cook the bacon in a skillet over medium heat until crisp. Allow to cool and then crumble.
    Set aside.
  • 4When rice is tender, melt the butter in a sauce pan over medium-low heat. Stir in flour, salt, poultry seasoning and pepper all at once into the melted butter.
    Cook, stirring, until smooth and bubbly.
    Stir in half-in-half (or caned milk) into flour mixture and cook until thickened, 2 minutes.
    Stir half-in-half/flour mixture into pot with the rice.
    Stir in bacon (sometimes I will add the bacon dripings too), turkey, and sherry.
    Heat through and serve.
  • 5This makes a pretty thick soup. To thin, add more broth or milk. Season to taste.
