What to Do With Leftover Turkey

The DH got a huge turkey for Christmas, so we had to do more than just make turkey sandwiches. I had made rolls for the sandwiches, but we needed to make other yummy things. One thing we did with the turkey is make delicious turkey and wild rice soup. It was much more improvised than made with a recipe, but this is the general recipe and it never disappoints.

Turkey Wild Rice Soup
1 medium onion, chopped
2 celery ribs, thinly sliced
2 carrots, diced
½ cup butter
½ cup flour
4 cups chicken broth
2 cups wild rice, cooked
2 cups milk (1/2 &1/2 if you like)
2 cups cooked turkey, diced
1 teaspoon parsley
½ teaspoon salt, pepper, paprika

In large kettle sauté onion, carrots and celery in butter until onion is transparent. Reduce heat and blend in flour, cook till bubbly. Slowly add broth, stirring constantly. Add all other ingredients and simmer for 20 minutes.

I love that soup. We made it too! Works with ham as well as turkey.

We fed that soup to the SEA-goers (over 55 sisters in the stake) when we were in charge of their luncheon. Boy is it good, and inexpensive too. (if you blend white and wild rice)
