You can use long grain white rice for all or part of the wild rice, but reduce simmering time to 20 to 30 minutes.

Directions

  1. In a large pot over medium heat, combine chicken broth, water, green onions and wild rice. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer until rice is tender, 35 to 40 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, cook the bacon in a large skillet over medium heat until crisp. Allow to cool and then crumble. Set aside.
  3. When rice is tender, melt the margarine in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat. Stir in flour, salt, poultry seasoning and pepper all at once. Cook, stirring, until smooth and bubbly. Stir in half-and-half and cook until thickened, 2 minutes. Stir half-and-half mixture into rice mixture. Stir in bacon, turkey and sherry. Heat through and serve.
  4. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

This is the best soup I've made to date! I will make it every time I have leftover turkey. Here is my two cents. I wanted to include a few more veggies for color and taste. Along with the green onion I chopped some leek, carrot, and shallot. Instead of adding to the broth, I cooked in 1 Tbsp. butter and 1 Tbsp. olive oil adding some garlic at this point. After veggies were softened I added a large can of chicken broth which ends up being more than the recipe calls for but it works. For the rice I used 1 package of Uncle Ben's Wild Rice. I cut the amount of butter and flour to 1/4 cup of each and then added 1/2 c. half and half, 1/2 c. lowfat milk, the poultry seasoning, and the seasoning packet from the Uncle Ben's Rice. I omitted the salt and pepper. There is plenty of salt in the broth and the seasoning mix. Also, I did not use bacon but put some bacon bits on the side so the kids could sprinkle them on. Making these changes cuts quite a bit of the fat. Adding the seasoning packet gives it a great flavor. Trust me it was fantastic.

I was looking for a recipe to use up some leftover turkey and gave this a try. I modified it a little by putting in the crockpot for the afternoon. This recipe was really easy and tasted wonderful.

This is the best turkey rice soup I have ever experienced. I have made it four or five times since I found the recipe back at Thanksgiving time and it has turned out exactly the same each time. I have shared this soup with friends and they love it. I can't say enough to explain the wonderful taste of this soup. I have even subsituted chicken and it still tastes great!! I love cooking from scratch and this is the most consistent recipe I have ever used. Do you get that this is WONDERFUL?? Give it a try you will not be disappointed!!
