Creamy Turkey and Wild Rice Soup

A most delicious bowl is a huge meal! Filling, absolutely delicious, and warms your whole body, especially during these windstorm laden, 14° days we've been having!

Creamy Turkey & Wild Rice Soup

1/2c. diced onion
1c. chopped carrot
8T. flour
1/2t. chicken seasoning
6T. butter
1 1/4C. half and half
4C. turkey broth (I make my own)
1C. water
3C. diced cooked turkey
1.5C. wild rice
Salt, pepper, herbs to taste
Crisp, cooked bacon

Cut carrots to 1/4" pieces.
Add olive oil to stock pot and saute the veggies.
Add broth, water, turkey, and rice. Bring to a boil, then simmer about 40mins.

In a saucepan, melt the butter over med-high heat. Add the flour and chicken seasoning and whisk it well, it will combine easily. Keep whisking and add 1 1/4 cups half and half. Whisking still, let this come to a boil and thicken. You want it to coat a spoon but not get too thick. When it’s thick enough remove it from the heat. (If too thick, add some milk)
After soup simmers for about 40mins, or when rice plumps up and becomes tender, add cream mixture to simmering soup and stir to combine.
Sprinkle crisp bacon on top.

Your soup is ready to serve or cool before going into the freezer.
