This soup instantly became a family favorite - it is delicious and very easy - if you are short on time, buy a rotisserie chicken from the store and shred it rather than making the chicken yourself.

I used regular wild rice (not instant) and frozen chopped carrots, onions, and celery. It was great and my whole family ate it up.

This turned out very well!! My husband asked me to make it again tonight and we just finished it last night!! I used long cooking wild rice, more chicken broth & onion instead of shallots. Plus more fresh mushrooms than called for. Great way to use up the left over turkey.

I tweaked the heck out of it and it was very good. I used double the broth, added a clove of roasted garlic, added dried marjoram, some allspice, and a touch of apple pie spice (yes!) and lots more pepper plus it still needed something, so added a handful of parmesan. Didn't have shallots on hand, so used half an onion and increased the amt of vegs. Also used long cooking rice, cooked in chicken broth, so added it at the end with the turkey. Sauteed with a bit of butter for flavor and used whole wheat pastry flour instead of white flour. Added a handful of parsley and might add some chopped fresh baby spinach the next time to up the vitamins. My sweetie said it was "restaurant qualify" so I guess I'll make it again!
