This recipe for Gluten Free Turkey Wild Rice Soup is the perfect recipe for Thanksgiving leftovers. I usually make this when the mashed potatoes, gravy and other sides have run out, or the weekend following Thanksgiving. I have a dairy sensitivity so I usually use oat milk, rather than cows milk and it blends in well. This recipe is not only easy, but really warming on the cold November days.

8 T Butter or ghee – separated
1 large Onion – diced
2 1/2 C Turkey – chopped
3 C Wild rice – cooked
1 C Carrots – grated or sliced into matchsticks
1 C Gluten free flour there are so many good options, I’ve attached a link for you to a few

Redmond’s Real Salt and Pepper to taste


1. In a large stainless steel pot, sauté onion and carrots in 3T of butter until tender.

5. Add this mixture to the large stock pot with onion, carrots, turkey and rice.
