Creamy Turkey and Rice Soup is the perfect leftover turkey soup recipe using rich vegetables and a creamy broth.


  • 1/2 cup butter (or turkey schmaltz!)
  • 1 cup diced carrots
  • 1 cup diced celery
  • 1 cup diced yellow onion
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 12 cups of turkey stock
  • 1 can evaporated milk
  • salt+pepper to taste
  • poultry seasoning to taste


  1. In a large dutch oven, saute vegetables in butter/schmaltz over medium-low heat until soft. About 15 minutes.
  2. Sprinkle in flour and stir into the vegetables and cook for a couple of minutes.
  3. Pour in 2 cups of the stock to loosen the vegetables and flour up, removing any lump.s
  4. Pour in the remaining stock, and stir to combine.
  5. Simmer over low heat for 20 minutes with the lid on.
  6. After 20 minutes, check the seasonings, I like to add a little sprinkle of poultry seasoning, salt, and pepper here.
  7. Pour in a can of evaporated milk, stir, and serve!


This freezes beautifully in quart/gallon-sized freezer bags!
