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 soup is perfect for Thanksgiving leftovers."
"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!"
"This is our absolute favorite after Thanksgiving soup!"
