Reviews for Wild Rice Turkey Soup
"Very flavorful and satisfying soup. It was a bit thick so next time will use less rice. It tastes even better the second day!"
"A wonderful & tasty way to use up leftover turkey! Will be making this again. It does turn out very thick, so next time I will reduce the rice as one cup of uncooked wild rice yields about 3 cups cooked."
"This was absolutely wonderful. I made it just like the recipe, but had leftover smoked turkey breast and bone so I made my own broth. Very tasty!"
"Tastes very good but turned out a little thicker than I would have liked."
"Turkey or chicken it's good. I added bacon for a little extra flavor and cut back on the celeryto 1/2 rib, added some scallions and used milk instead of half and half. Yummy!!!"
"My family liked the flavor of this soup...doubling the celery and mushrooms was my only change to the recipe."
"I've made many attempts at Creamy [chicken] Wild Rice soup over the years, and this is so flavorful and velvety. My first words to my husband after tasting my first sampling spoonful was, "This is restaurant quality!" Finally, I have mastered the creamy wild rice soup! I did add 2 cloves minced garlic and chopped carrot and ended up using a cup more stock, and I could not be more pleased. Thanks!"
