When you are looking for something wonderful to do with all of your leftover turkey then I would highly recommend this soup. The first time I made it I made it with chicken, and after our Thanksgiving feast I decided to use the rest of the leftover turkey and make this!
Creamy Turkey and Wild Rice Soup
4 cups chicken broth
2 cups water
2 cups left over turkey shredded
1 cup wild rice
1/4 cup chopped carrot
1/4 cup celery chopped
1/2 onion chopped
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon of thyme
1/4 teaspoon parsley
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup butter
2 cups heavy cream
In a large pot heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add onion, carrot, celery and garlic and saute until onions are translucent about 5 minutes,stirring frequently. Add thyme, parsley, pepper and salt. combine broth, water and turkey. Bring just to boiling, then stir in rice, cover and turn down to medium heat let cook for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. Reduce heat to low, then stir in flour mixture by tablespoons, to form a roux. Whisk in cream, a little at a time, until fully incorporated and smooth. Cook until thickened, 5 minutes.
Stir cream mixture into broth and rice. Cook over medium heat until heated through, 10 to 15 minutes.
