Creamy Turkey Wild Rice Soup is a creamy and delicious hearty soup filled with wild rice, veggies, and perfect for using up leftover turkey!
Fall is officially here and winter is quickly approaching. I am not looking forward to the winter months and snow, but I am looking forward to one thing. Soup season. I could eat soup all year long, but there is nothing better than a warm bowl of comforting soup in the colder months. I love a good hearty soup and this creamy soup will become a new family favorite.
This soup is perfect for using up that leftover turkey from the holidays. And it has a secret ingredient that makes this soup rich, and full of delicious turkey flavor. McCormick’s Simply Better Turkey Gravy. I have loved using these ready to serve gravy mixes in my recipes lately. They add quality flavor and the spices are already packed inside. It is so easy to just pour the gravy into the soup. The result was a thick and creamy soup that my family couldn’t get enough of.

I had lots of leftover turkey from Christmas so I gave this recipe a try. I used yolk free eggs noodles because I love egg noodles in soup but the kind with yolks are not so great for my husband’s cholesterol. I also replaced the half and half with oat milk. I know that may sound a little weird, but oat milk is very creamy like half and half only without the cholesterol. This soup was a huge hit with my crew of 6 who are picky eaters! Definitely will be making this again!
This soup was amazing. Perfect use for turkey after Thanksgiving. I used a wild/brown rice mix that was not quick cook and so I pre-cooked and diced the turkey instead of shredding.
I never EVER post reviews although I get most recipes from online sites – I made this from 1/2 smoked turkey and 1/2 smoked chicken my husband put on the smoker with hickory wood chips — OH MY GOD this was delicious. I also used canned gravy and substituted it for one of the cups of broth (I also used homemade broth) and arborio rice (risott0) for a nice thick grain. MAKE THIS IMMEDIATELY
