Low calorie and very tasty. "My family cannot get enough of this tasty soup. It is a wonderful use of leftover turkey from Thanksgiving, but we eat it all year round, using turkey breast tenderloins in place of the roasted turkey breast."

Recipe Ingredients for Turkey and Brown Rice Soup

1/2 cup brown rice, uncooked
1 tsp canola oil
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 cup chopped onion
1 cup chopped celery
1 cup peeled, cubed potato
3 cups chicken broth
1 1/2 cups turkey, roasted chopped skinless
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/4 cup flour
2 1/2 cups light soy milk
6 oz. cubed, processed cheddar cheese (such as Velveeta)

Recipe Directions for Turkey and Brown Rice Soup

  1. Cook the rice, according to the package directions, and set aside.

  2. Heat the oil in a large stock pan over medium-high heat and add the garlic, onion, and celery. Cook until the vegetables are tender. Add the potato and chicken broth, and simmer for about 8 minutes, or until the potato is tender.
