Excellent! A little spicy.....but that's the way I like it. I added some fresh cilantro too. This is the best turkey soup I've ever had and my husband agrees.
We really enjoyed this! It is a recipe that is very adjustable to your taste. I started with 3 quarts of stock I had already prepared, the recipe didn't really call for a specific amount of liquid so I eyeballed the rest. I only used one can of stewed tomatoes and half the rice, which was perfect for our taste, it didn't absorb all of the liquid leaving it more like soup than stew. Didn't add the corn. We liked the hearty nature of this turkey soup and would make this again! Thank you!
This soup was amazing! I substituted pearl barley for the rice and followed the recipe otherwise. It's very spicy but not too spicy. Great blend of flavors.
This is a really great soup. I made up the broth, strained it and put it in the refrigerator to separate the fat and make it easy to skim off. We like spicy so I added about 1/2 tsp of chili flakes as well. Very tasty and healthy too.
I loved it! Different from my typical Chinese turkey and rice soup (juk). I used one can of diced tomatoes and a can of red kidney beans with the liquid. I took someone's advice and used 1/2 c barley but then it wasn't enough so I added 1/2cup of elbows. It was delicious!
Truly EXCELLENT! Used wild rice in place of white rice.
Wow! I used smoked turkey and this was really fantastic! I reluctantly followed the recipe to the tea and was extremely grateful I did, all of the spices blended together perfectly and my family couldn't stop eating it! Awesome!!
Spectacular - quite possibly the best turkey soup I've ever had. Spicy but not *too* spicy, just warm and deeply flavourful. I followed the recipe to the letter but left out the bouillon cubes; I didn't miss them at all.
