Turkey Wild Rice Soup

It seems like every holiday season and everytime the turkey comes out, we’ve always got some left over, so instantely turkey soup comes to mind. Now, we already have one recipe for Turkey Soup on the blog and I can guarentee there will be more. I don’t think soup is my strong point in my baking/cooking skills, so practice it is!

This version is hearty and perfect for a cold day when you need to warm up. The rice keeps it light and healthy and you can always add your own variety of veggies.
