It’s a brand new year and many of you asked for more healthy crock pot recipes!! Here’s one of many ,more to come!
This recipes uses left over turkey breast you probably have tucked away in your freezer. But even if not you can use chopped raw turkey breast and it will cook up nicely with all the wonderful veggies and rice. A perfectly delicious soup for a cold wintery day or night!
Use whatever kind of rice you like here. I used a rice medley I found at Trader Joe’s which had a mix of haiga medium grain, white basmati, red & quick cook wild rice. It was delish! Due to the wild rice in there my soup needed a good 8 hours to be tender. Brown rice would work wonderful here.
Top with some fresh parsley and a little grated Parmesan and enjoy!
