This is a recipe I made up in desperation, with some stock given to me by my aunt along with left over turkey. This recipe makes about 4 cups of soup. You may substitute whatever green vegetable you like in place of the green beans, but I think it gives a nice mild taste to the soup. Also, the brown rice in the recipe means uncooked brown rice. If you have leftover cooked rice, you may substitute, but only need to add it in the last 5 minutes of cooking along with the turkey.
