Do you have leftover turkey you need to use? Then this recipe for Leftover Turkey Soup with Rice is just what you need! If you have chicken sitting around you can use that as well. But this soup is amazing with turkey! I find that rice holds up better than gluten-free noodles, I love using my own rice for home-made soup. It just seems the rice in canned soup doesn’t even taste like rice.
