Turkey Wild Rice Soup

One of our family traditions that has emerged over the past ten years has been to make soup the day after Thanksgiving.  Generally, after we’ve eaten some delicious food on Thursday, we’re ready to eat something that is a little lighter.  Several years ago I found this Chicken Wild Rice Soup recipe in Cooking Light.  I’ve posted the recipe before, but updated it and used leftover turkey and homemade turkey broth from the day before.
