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.

Turkey, Wild Rice and Mushroom Soup

It seems like a lot of sodium, but looks and sounds delicious! Would it freeze well. I could make a huge batch this weekend during the next snow storm and eat happily for weeks! Dietitian comment: You could omit the 1/2 teaspoon salt and use fresh instead of canned mushrooms to further decrease sodium. Still, 270 mg a serving is low compared to commercially prepared regular and reduced sodium soups.

It looks like a good recipe. I use no salt chicken broth and would use fresh mushrooms. If I precook the carrots and drain the water to lower the potassium, could I use more carrots? Would adding celery change the nutrient values much? Why is there added salt? Dietitian comment: If you add 1/2 cup celery potassium is still acceptable at 410 mg per serving. An additional 1/2 cup carrots adds 30 mg potassium per serving, but if you are boiling first and draining the water before adding to the soup that amount will be 1/3 to 1/2 lower. The salt is optional.
