Ordinarily I'd turn my nose up at something like this - I mean this soup is bland and kind of boring. Ordinarily I'd "fix" it with some white wine maybe, or some mushrooms, or perk it up with some herbs. Something! But then I noticed that for some reason there was something kind of soothing about this soup, kind of like a comfort food, and I realized that sometimes good old fashioned, nothing fancy, tummy filling food is really good and satisfying. As for hubs, his reaction was that normally he hates chicken soup with wild rice, but really liked this ('course in all fairness, he DOES like things kind of on the plain side). I made my own broth from a turkey carcass, used frozen peas, and used half cream and half milk - with all that flour in there it was plenty thick and rich and didn't suffer one bit for not using all cream as called for. The peas wouldn't necessarily have been first on my list of add ins, but again, there was something oddly good and nice about this kind of plain, non-descript soup.

This is some wonderful "comfort" food! It is bland, which suits my tastes very well. I made a few adjustments, just to use what I had on hand. I mixed edamame with the peas and that made for a nice flavor, and used up some white rice I had already cooked. It is a wonderful soup to make when you just want to warm up a bit. I also used half and half instead of cream. Very nice!
