Turkey and Wild Rice Soup

This is quick and easy and can be made with left-over turkey or rotisserie
chicken.
Ingredients
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 cup diced onion
  • 1/2 cup diced celery
  • 1/2 cup diced carrots
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 cups turkey or chicken – cooked & shredded
  • 1 (4.3 oz) box Long Grain and Wild Rice (Roasted Chicken flavor)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 1/4 cups heavy cream
  • 3/4 cup milk
Directions
  1. In a large pot, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add onions, celery and carrots and saute for 7-8 minutes.
  2. Add  broth, water and shredded turkey. Bring to a boil and add rice (save seasoning packet!). Cover pot and remove from heat.
  3. In a medium saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add the seasoning packet and stir to combine. Slowly add the flour (in 1/4 cup increments) to form a roux and continue to stir.
  4. Add salt and pepper.
  5. Whisk in heavy cream and milk, a little at a time, until fully incorporated. Cook and continue to stir until thickened – about 5 minutes.
  6. Return to broth/rice mixture to the heat and add cream mixture. Cook over medium heat until rice is softened and soup is thickened and heated through, about 10-15 minutes
