  1. I decided to double this recipe, because Recipe #118002, which I have made a couple of times, calls for twice the amount of water as this and works great. The seasonings in this are perfect. I thought the rice amount was excessive, and would use half as much next time (1 cup for the doubled recipe). I didn't use corn, and would not, because it was fine without it.
  2. Excellent soup! Just what I was looking for to use up leftover turkey. Thank you for sharing a great recipe.
  3. Since my son-in-law wanted me to make soup with the turkey carcass & my daughter requested rice in the soup, I chose this recipe. I left the stock in the refrigerator overnight & removed the solidified fat. In addition to the veggies in the ingredient list, I added some chopped turnip & frozen peas. This flavourful soup was enjoyed by all - a great way to use up leftover turkey. Thanx for posting!


I am a teacher who is near the end of my career. I have many craft interests and have just added cooking to my list. Since I like to keep a check on what DH eats I usually try to follow the WW diet and just love their cookbooks. Recipezaar has become the answer to my many cookbooks and recipes I gather and just can't seem to get organized. MMMMM maybe in retirement. <img src="http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e347/Saturn6666/KiwiDutch/3chefstag1.jpg">
