Cream of Turkey Soup

Cream of Turkey and Asparagus Soup“A delicious and very fast soup to make! Leave it plain or add any veggies you wish. In this one pictured I added one 14.5 ounce can of asparagus plus the juice.  Sometimes I might add corn or carrots. But really, it is SO tasty with just the rice!  Add veggies according to your whim!  It’s a favorite soup of mine, especially in the winter!    Enjoy!”

INGREDIENTS:

1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup flour
1 1/4 teaspoons salt
3/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup red bell pepper, chopped small and steamed
4 cups turkey broth
1/2 cup water
1 cup cooked rice
1 1/4 cups turkey breast meat (or chicken)
1 cup added cooked or canned vegetable, (optional)

 

DIRECTIONS:

1. Make a roux: In a large saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat.
2. Add the flour, salt, and pepper and stir with a wire whisk to get a roux, which is like a thick paste.
3. Add the heavy cream and whisk until creamy.
4. Add the bell pepper, turkey stock, water, rice, turkey meat. Add any optional vegetables if you are using them.  Stir ingredients together with a spoon.
5. Let it cook together for a few more minutes until everything is nice and hot.
