Turkey Wild Rice Soup in a brand new bowl!


See this bowl.

I made it.

Well, not exactly.

I painted it.

Isn’t it cool!

I had never been to a paint-your-own-pottery place before I went for a work party in December to All Glazed Up! in La Crosse.

Since I was a painting pottery virgin at the time, I didn’t fully understand how long it would take me to complete the project.  So, if I could do it all over again, I’d have taken a little bit more time and added another coat or two of the colors around the edge. 

But I love it!

So don’t be surprised if you see this here bowl A LOT with different types of food in it.

I can’t wait to go back and paint a cup and a plate and a gnome.  Yup – they have gnomes.  Who wouldn’t want one of those?

Have you ever painted your own pottery?

Turkey Wild Rice Soup

This is a simple soup you can make with leftover turkey or chicken. All of the other ingredients are pretty basic pantry/fridge staples. If you’d like more of a stew instead of a soup, only use half the amount of chicken broth.

Yield: 8 - 10

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes


2 cups chopped turkey
1 cup chopped carrots
1 medium onion, chopped fine
1 box (6 ounces) Wild Rice cooked according to directions
2 cans (10.5 ounces) cream of chicken soup
64 ounces of chicken broth
1 cup heavy cream
Salt, pepper and garlic powder to taste


1. In a large stock pot, add all ingredients and stir well.
2. Heat to a boil and then simmer for 15 minutes.
3. Serve while hot with warm bread and a salad.
4. Store leftovers in the fridge up to a week or freeze until ready to use.

    Hi Kendra the soup looks great. I was wondering if you could replace the heavy cream ? Plz give me your thoughts. Thanks Laurie

      Hi Laurie,
      You can certainly replace the heavy cream with any kind of milk or you can leave it out. I like the little bit of creaminess and richness it adds to the soup but by leaving it out shouldn’t adjust the taste or texture too much.

      Thanks for stopping by!
