Creamy Leftover Turkey Soup
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- ½ cup finely chopped onion
- ½ cup chopped celery
- 4 ounces sliced cremini mushrooms
- 1 clove garlic crushed
- 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
- 3 tablespoons flour
- 6 cups turkey broth OR chicken, OR vegetable
- 3 medium carrots peeled and sliced
- ½ pound baby potatoes halved or quartered
- ½ cup wild rice blend
- 1 cup half & half
- 4 cups cooked Turkey meat shredded
- ½ cup corn
- salt & pepper, to taste
Cook aromatics: Heat butter and oil in large pot over medium heat. Add onion and celery and cook until softened, 4-5 minutes.
Cook mushrooms: Stir in mushrooms and sauté for 3-4 minutes, until mushrooms have softened. Stir through garlic and cook for one more minute.
Season: Reduce heat to medium-low. Sprinkle Italian seasoning and flour evenly over mushroom mixture, stir well for 1 minute.
Add broth: Gradually pour in broth, stirring constantly, to keep any lumps from forming.
Simmer: Stir in carrots, potatoes and rice. Bring soup to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer and cook, covered, until rice is nearly done (about 20-25 minutes for parboiled rice, about 35 minutes for regular).
Finish soup: Once rice is nearly ready, open lid and stir soup well. Add half and half, cooked turkey meat and corn. Stir well, then simmer over medium heat, uncovered, for 10 minutes or until heated through.
Serve: Season with salt and pepper to taste, then serve immediately.
