Reviews for Cream of Turkey and Wild Rice Soup
"Even better with fresh mushrooms!"
"This soup has become a tradition in my family. The day after Thanksgiving or anytime we have left over turkey, I make this soup. It is hearty and great on cool days. Don't wait only for Thanksgiving to make this soup though."
"This was an excellent way to use up the remaining smoked turkey from Christmas. I didn't use the mushrooms since we didn't have any on hand, but I suppose I could have substituted some chopped carrots instead (I didn't think about this until the soup was almost done). My family loved this, and we will be making it again in the future! It's perfect for using up all that leftover turkey from the holidays."
