I was looking for something really easy to make for dinner. When I want something really simple, my go-to is often the slow cooker. I love throwing a bunch of ingredients together in the morning and letting the slow cooker do all of the work.
I started out by thinking of what I already had on hand and remembered that I still had some leftover turkey in the freezer as well as some turkey stock. I also had some wild rice, which I love! So I paired that up with some carrots, celery, onion and garlic and this soup was born.
I really wasn’t even planning on posting this on the blog, which is why I don’t have any pictures of the process. But it turned out so delicious that I really wanted to share it with all of you! And actually, once you read the recipe, you’ll realize you really don’t need any step-by-step photos because it’s so super easy. One note that I will make is that it turned out without a lot of broth, so if you want it to have more broth, just increase the water by 2 cups.
Turkey Wild Rice Soup
- 2 large carrots, peeled and sliced
- 3 large ribs celery, sliced
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 cups cooked turkey or chicken ( uncooked would work also)
- 1 1/2 cups uncooked wild rice
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp pepper
- 1 tsp Herbes d’ Provence
- 2 quarts turkey or chicken stock
- 2 cups water
Place all ingredients in a slow cooker, stirring to combine. Cook on low for 8-9 hours or high for 4-5, until rice is tender. This is a very thick soup, not real “brothy”. If you want more broth, add 4 cups of water instead of 2.
