How to make it
- Put stock or broth in soup pot with turkey and thyme and heat to low simmer. Melt 1/2 T butter in small frying pan and saute onion and celery 3-5 minutes. Add to soup pot with water, mushroom base, and soy sauce and simmer 15 minutes.
- While soup simmers, saute mushrooms about 5 minutes in 1/2 T of butter. Add mushrooms to soup and simmer 15-20 minutes more. In same pan that mushrooms and veggies were cooked in, melt remaining 1 T butter. Wisk in flour and cook 2 minutes. One cup at a time, wisk 2 cups of soup liquid into the flour mixture and heat until mixture starts to thicken. Pour thickened mixture back into soup pot and stir to distribute.
- Taste for seasoning, add salt and pepper to taste. If mixture seems too thin, cook down for a few minutes. When soup has reached desired thickness, add wild rice and cook 2-3 minutes. Add half and half or cream, stir in and heat thoroughly but do not boil. Serve hot.
