More Flavor

The first night I made the soup it was just OK in the flavor department. The next day we had leftover soup for lunch. I added fresh rosemary and more parsley. It still did not have the flavor we craved. The base is perfect. I just need more ideas for adding flavor to this wonderful soup.

Great texture, hearty, comforting soup.

I loved this!!.. i didn't have carrots and it still turned out really good. It does need just a little more salt, but i would only add it to the serving you are going to eat as to not OVER salt the whole pot of soup.

Lovely with smoked chicken

Great recipe for a less guilty creamy chicken wild rice soup. I used smoked chicken and it was wonderful. The smoky chicken added huge flavor.

Cream of Turkey & Wild Rice Soup

I made this for my husband and I - VERY good and quite easy. I used 12 ounces of shredded rotisserie chicken; 2 tablespoons of flour; and a precooked package of Uncle Ben's long grain and wild rice. Only improvement I would make is to add more salt and pepper.

Easy, quick and good
Better pot pie filling

This was super thick. Tasted more like pot pie filing. This recipe resulted in a huge quantity of soup, so I ended up turning the leftovers into pot pie. My family liked it better as pot pie vs soup. Just covered with pie crust and baked at 400 for 30 minutes.

Easy recipe, good for using up leftovers
