An area turkey grower shared this recipe with me. A rich and smooth soup, it makes great use of two Minnesota resources—turkey and wild rice. Be prepared to serve seconds! —Terri Holmgren, Swanville, Minnesota

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!
