Turkey & Wild Rice Soup

Turkey & Wild Rice Soup

 Use your Leftover Turkey in this Turkey & Wild Rice Soup

Today, I wanted to share one more idea for using your leftover Turkey.   I have a very tasty recipe for a Chicken Noodle Soup.  I used my Chicken Noodle Soup recipe and substituted the chicken and noodles for leftover turkey and wild rice.  It was a tasty and delicious way to use up the last of my turkey.  I also made Turkey Cranberry Grilled Cheese Sandwiches to go with it.  Both of them were amazing!!   I do not say this often, but I love these leftovers.   If you need an idea to use up the rest of your turkey, try one of these soups or this scrumptious Turkey Cranberry Sandwich.  Use my Chicken Noodle Soup Recipe.  You can use chicken or substitute it for turkey and substitute the noodle for wild rice.  This soup is super simple to make using your slow cooker.

  1. Hi Diane! This soup looks so good to me today. When it gets cooler, I crave soups and this one will satisfy my craving. Noodles are for every day, but rice………now that is something special. I think it makes for a nice hardy soup. I’m thinking I should have planned to have more leftover turkey.

  2. I totally had to pin this one for my husband who loves most soups that contain wild rice. Me I admit is not big into turkey in soup for some reason, but do think my husband would enjoy this one, so totally sharing with him. Thanks as always Diane and enjoy the rest of your weekend now!! :)
