Reviews for Turkey Wild Rice Soup
"This is easier and faster to prepare than my normal chicken and wild rice recipe & tastes just as good - maybe better!! I used chicken but I'm sure I will be making it with turkey when it comes time to use up Thanksgiving leftovers!"
"Absolutely fantastic! Used chicken (what I had on hand), added mushrooms and a little less flour. Family loves this - thanks for sharing!"
"Made this tonight. It is delicious."
"This soup is so delicious. I always add mushrooms."
"I added mushrooms and also took my turkey drippings and thickened it up and added that to my soup, too. I was delicious have made it after every turkey I make. We have turkey at least once a month."
"This is very delicious-we love it!!"
"So good. So very, very good."
"Mushrooms were a terrific addition - we loved the suggestion. Served with hot biscuits, this soup was a comfort food indeed for a cold and rainy fall evening such as we had today."
"This is so good. I added some mushrooms and a little more flour as I like my soup a little thicker. Very tasty!"
"Made this last night and my husband (and I) loved it. Was so simple and tasty. A great way to use leftover turkey! It tasted even better today as leftovers!"
"I doubled the recipe which was a mistake because it was difficult to cook the roux (flour, butter, veggie mix) properly. Next time I will sauté the veggies in a separate pan and make the roux ( flour and butter) by itself. That way it will be cooked and not floury/ chalky feeling in your mouth from uncooked roux. Also I will cut the flour by half and see if I like it better. Seems like quite a bit of flour! Usually butter amount equals flour amount for the roux. So perhaps 1/4 cup of flour and 1/4 cup of butter. I did make double like I said and my family enjoyed it. It's extremely thick which is what you want and pretty tasty despite all the flour."
"Yummy Classic wild rice soup, easy to make, didn't last 24 hours for family of five. The picky 13 & 7 year olds loved it."
"Absolutely delicious. I added a cup of chopped dried shiitake mushrooms. Would definitely make again!"
"Oh wow! This is an easy soup that tastes wonderful, plus you can use your turkey leftovers. My family is already asking for it again!"
"Quick, easy and very delicious. One of my favorite fall and winter soups."
"Very good and comforting! I made a few minor changes. I used chicken instead of turkey, and I also add 1-2 tsp of fresh basil to add additional flavor. Will make again!"
"This soup is excellant and very easy to make. My whole family liked it, even my picky 9 yr old."
"I recently made this for my family on a cold winter night just before Christmas. Although we added some mushrooms to the veggies, I followed the remaining directions exactly, and the soup turned out wonderful. Great flavor and very filling. Served with beer bread. Great recipe!"
"I have made this exactly as the directions state several times. It is a family fav in my house. Even with my little ones."
"I have made this several times"
"This was very quick and delicious. Only item i might add in the future is mushrooms."
"The BEST soup I've ever made! It is very rich, so you might want to make some light sides to go with it, but it's so warming on a cold November evening."
"super easy and yummy!"
"This was excellent and easy! highly recommend."
"This is the BEST Turkey soup recipe in the world. THANK YOU! I have made it for several years."
