I had a cold for weeks and then my daughter caught it. We have really just been craving home-made soup.
Since I saved the Turkey bones from Thanksgiving, I thought a big pot of Turkey, Veggies and Rice soup would hit the spot and help those sore throats feel better! There are a few steps, but in the end you will be so happy to have a big bowl of hot Turkey and Rice Soup!
- 1 Turkey Carcass with some meat still on it
- 1 onion, sliced ( for broth)
- 3 carrots, chopped into chunks
- 2 potatoes chopped into chunks
- 5 mini Portobella Mushrooms, chopped into chunks
- 1 onion ,diced
- 2½ cups brown rice, cooked
- 2 TBsp Olive Oil
- salt and pepper to taste
- Place turkey carcass and sliced onion in large soup pot, cover with cold water. Bring to a boil, lower heat, let simmer for a couple of hours, until all turkey has fallen off the bones.
- Drain turkey and broth in a colander with bowl or pot underneath to catch broth. Let turkey cool, remove bones, use fingers if not hot.
- In a sauce pan, add Olive Oil, over medium heat, add onions, carrots and mushrooms, saute until veggies are soft.
- Take drained broth and vegetables and turkey and simmer on medium heat until potatoes are tender, add rice, serve hot. Add salt and pepper to taste.
