Turkey and Wild Rice Soup
Cook: 1 hour
4 tablespoons butter
2 carrots, chopped
1 large onion, chopped
2 celery stalks, sliced
8 ounces sliced mushrooms (chopped if you prefer, but not necessary)
3 garlic cloves, minced
4 tablespoons flour
4–5 cups turkey or chicken stock
1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme leaves
1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 cup uncooked wild rice
1/2 cup sherry wine (optional)
3 cups shredded cooked turkey
1/2 cup half and half
1/4 cup slivered almonds (optional)
salt and pepper to taste
Melt your butter in a large Dutch oven or stock pot.
Add the carrots, onion, and celery to the pot, season with salt and pepper, and cook until softened, about 5 minutes.
Add the sliced mushrooms and garlic and cook another 5 minutes.
Add the flour and cook about 3-5 minutes.
Add 4 cups of the turkey or chicken stock, thyme, rosemary, Worcestershire sauce, and rice. (I have used the Uncle Ben's Long grain and Wild Rice Blend as a nice mix)
Bring to a simmer and then cover and simmer for 30 minutes.
Add the sherry (if you like) and turkey and simmer, uncovered, another 15-20 minutes, until the rice is cooked.
Stir in the half and half and slivered almonds. (I have used milk instead of half and half)
