This slow cooker keto turkey rice soup is a warm comforting meal on a cold day or any day!
After the holidays is the perfect time to make a keto turkey soup! If you have any left over turkey from Christmas or Thanksgiving you probably have tucked away in your freezer, thaw it now to make this comforting bowl of soup. But even if not, you can use chopped raw turkey breast and it will cook up nicely with all the wonderful veggies and miracle rice. A perfectly delicious soup for a cold wintery day or night!
Shiritayki (Miracle) Rice or Cauliflower Rice
I chose miracle rice for this recipe, but cauliflower rice would be just as tasty, although it would add more to your total carb count per serving. If you've never tried this rice before, it is a zero calorie food that is derived from the Konjac yam. The fiber that comes from the root of this plant is called glucommanon. This is a starch that is an indigestible dietary fiber and therefore they have no calories or carbohydrate.
Miracle rice doesn't have much of a flavor, but when combined in this soup it takes on the flavors of the broth and veggies and makes you feel you aren't missing anything on your keto or low carb diet. I like this brand of miracle rice.

A crunchier texture, not "a more crunchier" texture. 😉
Could I substitute the rice for quinoa? It has less carbs.
Sure or even cauliflower rice for lower carbs.
Hi! I just wanted to double check the cooking time. The recipe says 6-8 hours on high. Should that be on low? I usually never use the high setting, and I'd just like to be sure. . .
You could try it on low, but I used high to make sure the rice was fully cooked.
I cooked this on low for 8 hours and the wild rice became mush. The soup was inedible. Very disappointed.
Really? I'm surprised, had you presoaked the rice?
This is probably a dumb question, but are you putting the kale in the crock pot?? Or adding it at the last minute till wilted??
Yes I added it for the entire cooking time because I wanted it totally soft. If you prefer a more crunchier texture just add it the last 30 minutes.
I have some chard in my freezer I need to use up, is it a suitable sub for kale in this recipe? 🙂
Sure, that sounds great!
thanks, it turned out great, hubby loved it too 🙂
Another great recipe! This one was enjoyed by all the family...even our 1 year-old. I had never used Kale in anything. It was easy to work with and had a nice texture in the soup. I hear that it is full of nutrients. I skipped the shallots and used 1/3 cup of onion in place of. I've never used shallots before and figured I should probably limit myself to one new ingredient at a time. What type of flavor difference would you think the shallot would make in the end product? This one is definitely going in our recipe binder.
My family loved this soup as well, even the picky 12 year old! I like to use shallots sometimes because they have a milder taste that my kids prefer. If they see too much onion they frown on it so the shallots still give that flavor but less of a bite.
