"Absolutely fabulous! I made this last night with the leftover turkey from this past Thanksgiving (boiled the carcass to get the broth and turkey). Online I found many great sounding recipes but opted to try this one and am so glad that I did! I added mushrooms (as many others have suggested and the added taste or flavor was a perfect addition to this already great soup). I also added one clove of minced garlic (sauteed with the onion, celery and carrots) and a few minutes later I then added the sliced mushrooms. I also used only 1 cup of the wild rice (cooked in the turkey broth to enhance the flavor) but then added 1 cup of white rice. And finally a little bit of thyme and rosemary! OMG! One of the best recipes I have ever tried! I definitely will be making this again whenever there is a leftover bird in my house!!!"

"What a great way to use Thanksgiving leftovers! I was looking for a new turkey soup recipe, as I make the same turkey noodle every year. This is a great base recipe. I followed the instructions exactly but found the soup to be a bit bland, so I kept adding various flavorings until it pleased my tastebuds. These modifications included a package of sliced baby bella mushrooms, 1 tsp. of rosemary, 1 tsp. of thyme, a generous dash of white wine and a few dashes of Tabasco. I found that it thickens up a lot in the refrigerator, so I recommend putting some turkey broth aside to thin it out when you're ready to reheat. Delicious!"

"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!"
