Turkey and Rice Soup

I was definitely surprised at how easy it was to make this soup!  I started with the bones from the left-over turkey breast I had saved.  I think making the broth from scratch is what makes this soup so flavorful!  The recipe below includes the amount of spices I used, but they may need to be adjusted depending on how big a pot of soup you make.

Turkey and Rice Soup

I'm always in the mood for a good bowl of soup when it's cold outside.  Here's a view from our front porch a few days ago.  The frost was so beautiful I just had to take a picture of the frosty Missouri morning. :)

This soup is so simple yet so flavorful :)

Turkey and Rice Soup

I actually had to pause for a bowl while I was writing this post.  ..mmmmm...

The bones from the turkey breast still had quite a bit of meat left on them.  Once I finished boiling them, I picked the rest of the meat off of the bones and added it to the soup (with about a cup of additional turkey meat cut into bite sized pieces). [pinit]
