turkey soup with root vegetables and wild rice
serves 6

Whenever we have leftover turkey, I like to make this soup. The caramelized notes of roasted turkey balance nicely with the wild rice’s nuttiness and the sweet and earthy notes of carrots, parsnips, and celeriac. Native to North America, wild rice grows in shallow lakes and ponds. It is particularly rich in B vitamins, as well as the minerals zinc, phosphorus, and manganese. Soaking the wild rice in water with a touch of vinegar shortens its cooking time while reducing food phytate, a component of grains and seeds that can inhibit the absorption of the minerals they contain.

1 cup wild rice
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon butter
1 yellow onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
3 carrots, diced
2 parsnips, diced
1 celeriac, diced
1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves
½ teaspoon finely ground sea salt
2 cups chopped, cooked turkey
6 cups Roasted Turkey Bone Broth (page 33)
Freshly ground black pepper

Pour the rice into a mixing bowl, cover with warm water by 1 inch, and stir in the vinegar. Cover the bowl loosely with a kitchen towel to prevent stray debris from falling in. Let the rice soak overnight, at least 8 and up to 24 hours, then drain it, discarding the water.
Melt the butter in a heavy soup pot over medium heat. When the butter begins to foam and froth, turn the temperature down to medium-low and toss in the onion, garlic, carrots, parsnips, celeriac, and thyme. Sprinkle the salt over the vegetables and cover the pot, allowing the vegetables to sweat, undisturbed, until tender, about
10 minutes.
Give the vegetables one quick stir and then add the cooked turkey and soaked wild rice. Pour in the broth and simmer, covered, until the rice is tender, about 45 minutes. 
Season with salt and pepper and serve warm.
