Frugal Turkey & Wild Rice Soup

Who doesn't love to save money? I am all into being money conscious and trying to cut cost; but I want my family fed well and I love flavor! This soup is going to be your next favorite family meal!

Let's make soup! 

The other day at Aldi I purchased a large Turkey breast with the bone in that fed my family of 5 over three meals. During that time we also ate wild rice cooked in the turkey drippings.                      

               I made extra. 😉

To be truthful I made three boxes of wild rice that cost about 1.25 each!

The recipe:
2 cups of Turkey shredded
2 cups of cooked will rice
2 celery stalks
3 carrots
10 cups of water
follow instructions to taste broth base
2 TBSP of parsley
1 TBSP dried onion
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 can diced tomatoes 
1/2 black pepper
salt to taste

You can substitute chicken broth for broth base and water.

Cut and wash your veggies. 

I add my shredded turkey and herbs in and I add the wild rice to the soup once it is fully cooked while I am transferring it to my slow cooker to keep warm while we are out and about.

Nothing in the world better than to walk into our home after a long day and smell this soup's aroma coming from our slow cooker. That is one of the joys of being frugal. 

Add the can of tomatoes to the soup with the other veggies.

A little flavor.

Here is a little more FLAVOR!

Simmer your soup until the carrots and celery are tender. Add your soup and wild rice to your slow cooker if you wish. Or you can just add the wild rice to the kettle on the stove.

So know you how to prepare a hearty healthy soup full of veggies, lean protein, and tons of flavor! I promise they will keep coming back for more!
