Leftover Turkey Soup with Rice & Spinach
Leftover turkey soup recipe is flavorful and filling, chock full of rice, turkey, and veggies -- and the perfect way to make a little of your Thanksgiving turkey into something completely new!
turkey broth (make this overnight in your slow cooker with the bones, then strain and refrigerate for a while in the morning so you can skim the fat before using)
carrots, peeled and chopped
celery stalks, chopped
chopped cooked turkey
a medium yellow onion. chopped
uncooked wild rice blend
Sea salt, to taste
Black pepper, to taste
fresh baby spinach
Add broth, 4 cups of water, and all other ingredients except for the spinach to a large soup pot or Dutch oven and bring to a boil. Boil for about 10 minutes, skimming if necessary.
Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 2-2.5 hours to allow vegetables to soften and flavors to blend, stirring occasionally.
As the rice will start absorbing a lot of the broth, add two more cups of water about 1.5 hours in -- and you can add a little more water if soup appears too thick.
After the soup is done simmering, wilt in spinach and serve.
Leftover turkey soup with rice & spinach is naturally gluten free.
