Directions

Watch how to make this recipe.

For the stock: Remove the skin from the turkey. Remove the meat from the bones, cut the meat into a medium dice and reserve for later use. Place the bones in a large stock pot. Add 3 gallons water, the chicken base and liquid smoke. Simmer for 4 hours then strain through cheesecloth. Cool and then skim off the fat from the top of the liquid.

For the soup: Roast the red peppers. Place the peppers under the broiler until the skins become charred. Then place the peppers in a container and cover with a lid. Sweat the peppers until the skin peels off easily. Remove the skin and seeds. Dice the peppers, celery, carrots and onions. Set aside.

Cook the wild rice in 8 cups water for approximately 1 hour.

To assemble, melt the butter in large pot. Add the diced carrots, celery and onions. Cook for 5 minutes. Add the flour and cook another 5 minutes. Add the 3 gallons of turkey stock and simmer about 15 minutes. Place in a blender and puree the vegetables. Put the puree back into the pot and add the diced turkey, roasted peppers and rice. Stir in the half-and-half.

Serve while hot.

Cook's Note

When blending hot liquids, first let cool for 5 minutes or so, then transfer to a blender, filling only halfway. Put the lid on, leaving one corner open; this will prevent the vacuum effect that creates heat explosions. Cover the lid with a kitchen towel to catch splatters and pulse until smooth.
