Soup Sunday- Turkey Soup with Mushrooms and Wild Rice

Turkey Soup with Mushrooms and Wild Rice

I made a turkey this weekend for my meals this week. It was a small one, only about 9 pounds. That was the perfect size for making soup, When I had finished roasting the turkey, I cleaned the meat off of the carcass and added that the drumsticks and wings to a big stockpot. I few hours later I had great turkey bone broth that I used to make this soup and a turkey vegetable soup, This one will be eaten for lunches all week.  Hope you enjoy it.

3 tablespoons butter
1 yellow onion finely chopped
2 stalks of celery, finely chopped
1 tablespoon ground sage
4 tablespoons flour
5 cups turkey bone broth
2/3 cup wild rice
8 ounces of mushrooms sliced
6 ounces cooked turkey diced
1 1/2 cups heavy cream

Melt the butter in the bottom of a dutch oven. Add the mushrooms, onions and celery. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes, until the onions soften.  Add the ground sage and flour. Pour in the broth and mix well.  Bring to a simmer and add the wild rice. Cook for about 20 minutes until the rice is done. Add the turkey and then the cream. Simmer for about 10 minutes, being careful to not boil.

Makes 6 servings.
