Helpful hints

  • If quick-cooking wild rice is unavailable, use regular wild rice. Add rice to 2 cups boiling broth, return to a boil and simmer covered for 50 minutes or until rice kernels puff open.
  • Substitute 1 cup fresh mushroom pieces for canned mushrooms if desired.
  • For a lower protein diet reduce turkey to 1 cup instead of 2 cups. Protein is reduced to 17 grams per serving.
