Slow Cooker Turkey and Wild Rice Soup

  • 1 cup uncooked wild rice
  • 1 cup chopped yellow onions
  • 6 cups turkey broth
  • 1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
  • 1-2 tablespoons instant tapioca
  • 2-3 cups diced, cooked turkey
  • 1 cup shredded fresh carrots
  • 2 cups half & half
  • Additional water as needed
  • Fried onions, for garnish (optional)

Rinse the wild rice. Place the uncooked wild rice, onions, turkey broth, and poultry seasoning in a slow cooker. Cover and cook on low for 6-7 hours. The rice should be soft. There will be extra liquid in the slow cooker; do not drain.

Gently stir in the instant tapioca and the diced turkey. Replace the lid and cook for an additional 30 minutes. Add the shredded carrots and the half & half. If the soup is too thick for your liking, thin it as desired with additional water. Season with salt & pepper as desired. Garnish with a sprinkle of fried onions as you're serving the soup, if desired.

  • Yields: 6-8 servings
  • Preparation Time: 8 hours (mostly hands-off slow cooking time)
