Looking for a extraordinary tasting turkey rice soup recipe. Well, let me assure you, I have the remedy that you are looking! Michele Romano's easy healthy recipe for turkey soup.
I recently roasted a turkey to celebrate my daughter and her husband coming home from being away at school for three months. (I don't know why, in most cases we wait for an official holiday to stuff and roast a bird?) True enough, Turkey dinner is a lot of work for one day, but the joy of the leftovers, the turkey sandwiches on homemade bread and YES, the turkey soup that can take us through the rest of the week makes it all worth while. Get creative. There is so many ways to use left over turkey.
By the way, I always change up my soup recipes, sometimes I add noodles, tomatoes and vegetables and then other times I use rice and vegetables. This turkey rice soup recipe I used an an organic brown and wild rice mix..
Note:In the good old days before they started mass producing our turkey and chickens, you did not need to add any extra broth for flavor. Nowadays unfortunately, you will find that the turkey or chicken stock does not have the colour or the flavor it used to on its own. Just ask your parents, I know mine sure mention it from time to time.
Cook and Prep time: 3 hrs
Soup is ready to be served! I always serve my soups with a fresh loaf of Michele Romano's Heavenly Scent homemade oatmeal honey bread or my half wholewheat pumpkin seed bread.
