I’m in the midst of an exciting time right now. I have time to be at home and work on the things I love the most, one of them being this website. I love creating recipes and photographing them and then sharing them with YOU! I don’t say this enough, but THANK YOU for reading and for leaving kind comments. I hope you enjoy every recipe you try on this website!
I created this soup using the homemade turkey stock I made with this year’s Thanksgiving turkey. The stock was delicious, but this soup was beyond delicious! You get the turkey leftovers and the bones to make broth with. Homemade turkey stock can also be used in this Turkey Barley Soup and this incredible Chicken Noodle Soup.
HOW TO PREPARE RICE SOUP WITH TURKEY
Place your slow cooker on the counter and add a slow cooker liner. Keep clean up to a minimum!
Combine turkey broth (or chicken) stock (homemade stock preferable but not necessary), turkey meat (only if you’re not using chunky homemade stock), rice, carrots, celery, mushrooms, salt and pepper to a crock pot. Cover and cook.
Cook on Low heat for 7 to 8 hours or cook on High heat for 4 to 5 hours.
If you have the opportunity to make your own stock, do it! It adds a ton of delicious flavor.
If you don’t want to prepare a whole turkey, you can prepare a turkey breast right in your Instant pot, enjoy some with some veggies then use the rest of the meat in this soup!
I love wild rice in soup, if you do too, cook up a cup of it separately and toss it into the soup close to the end of the cooking period.
HOW LONG IS SLOW COOKER TURKEY SOUP GOOD FOR
You can refrigerate the soup for 3-4 days. If you don’t think you can enjoy it by then, I recommend cooling it completely, placing it in an airtight container and freezing it. It’ll be good for 6 months.
