Creamy Turkey & Wild Rice Soup

This creamy, comforting soup is perfect when using up those holiday leftovers.
Put on your holiday meal plan today!

Bowl of turkey and wild rice soup

Hands down.  The husband's favorite soup.

It is originally made with shredded chicken.  But, HELLO, Thanksgiving was yesterday so enter in the turkey.

Besides a classic turkey sandwich the next day for lunch, this is one of our favorite ways to use up leftover turkey.  It is pretty much comfort in a bowl.

Our kids gobble {sorry, I had to...} this up as well.  Per usual, our middle child asked for a second bowl and our oldest who is the pickiest of the two wasted no time downing a bowl himself.  I won't tell you how many bowls the husband had.  He'd be embarrassed.

And you know me and soups.  The main reason I make them is so this mom doesn't have to worry about dinner the following night.  It stretches out to two meals and that frankly makes me happier than a good Black Friday deal.

To go with our soup I made a hearty crispy on the outside, chewy on the inside artisan loaf of bread.  BEST IDEA EVER.  Have you ever seen kids inhale homemade bread slathered in butter?  It's quite the show.  You'd think they were eating candy right off the factory line.

Nothing beats homemade bread.  Here is the recipe I use each and every time.

Alright, right after reading this, get your butt to the kitchen and start pulling that turkey off the carcass and make this soup!

If you make and love {which I hope you will} please take a moment to give it a star rating below on the printable recipe card. It would mean so much to me! Plus, it lets other readers know just how good it really is.

Be ready for the best comfort food meal around.
