Make this delicious soup with homemade turkey stock...it is delicious! Comforting, warm and great for family dinner or large gatherings.
Dan and I lead probably the most unconventional lives on the planet. Our schedules are all over the place and they change with the seasons. Between the two of us, we have approximately eight jobs. It suits us well, though. We both work really hard so we can do the things we love, and I think that is an important lesson for our boys. We are in the midst of an exciting time right now. Dan is planning DC trips and 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! Sorry for getting gushy, but I have to do that once in a while. Have a great rest of your week!
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! Homemade turkey stock can also be used in this Turkey Barley Soup and this incredible Chicken Noodle Soup.
Add turkey (or chicken) stock (homemade stock preferable but not necessary), turkey meat (only if you're not using chunky homemade stock), rice, celery, carrots, mushrooms, salt and pepper to a crockpot.
If you have the opportunity to make your own stock, do it! It adds a ton of delicious flavor.
Cook on Low heat for 7 to 8 hours or High heat for 4 to 5 hours.
I ate this soup for approximately eight consecutive meals and NEVER got tired of it. ENJOY!
