Reviews forCream of Turkey and Wild Rice Soup
"Even better with fresh mushrooms!"
"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."
