KITCHEN SCOOP: Turkey & Rice Soup


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- If you are "rich food" worn out like Alicia, what you need is a simple soul-satisfying soup for dinner. This is a terrific recipe for a healing soup as well as a great way to use leftover turkey and rice you may have the fridge. An equal amount of chicken can also be used in place of the turkey.

Start to finish: 20 minutes
Serves 4 heartily

1 teaspoon vegetable oil

1 cup sliced fresh carrot

1 cup diced celery

1 cup diced onion

1 teaspoon minced garlic

1 teaspoon Italian seasoning

4 cups chicken broth

1 cup leftover roasted turkey breast

1 cup leftover white rice

2 egg yolks, lightly beaten

black pepper to taste

1. Heat oil over medium heat in large soup pot. Add carrot, celery and onion. Cook 2 to 3 minutes or until tender. Add garlic, seasoning and broth. Stir in turkey and rice and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer and cook for 5 minutes to blend flavors.
