This was a classic growing up. A little creamy, all fresh ingredients, mushrooms from a local farmer, and wild rice from a friend who was from MN, but rented one of our cottages every summer and always brought tons of MN Wild Rice. Now if you don't have turkey leftovers (which I almost always do), use chicken which will work just fine. But there is something about the turkey that is just perfect with this. If I don't have leftover turkey, I often buy a small turkey breast just so I can make this soup, and use the rest for sandwiches. And no turkey stock? ... chicken stock or broth is fine. Just don't skimp on a few things. 1) Sherry wine, 2) REAL wild rice, 3) fresh vegetables and, mushrooms, and; 4) fresh herbs. It just isn't the same otherwise. I can have just a bowl of this for dinner or it makes a great starter, or wonderful with just a salad or grilled sandwich.
