This is my favorite way to use up leftover Thanksgiving turkey! My husband loves it too, and so do the kids (even with the brown rice and vegetables). For a creamy soup, this is fairly healthy and not too fattening–which is an important consideration in the days following your Thanksgiving feast.
I use a quick cooking wild rice mix that includes white, brown and red rice. It cooks up in only 15 minutes and the soup is ready in no time. I have had requests to “leave out the carrots” and it’s just fine without them. Mushrooms are also a nice addition, and if you don’t have leftover turkey, you can make the soup with chicken.
