Curried Turkey and Rice Soup {or Chicken}

Curried Turkey Rice Soup - An Oregon Cottage

Spice up your turkey and rice soup with curry for a delicious, different take on a classic, comforting soup. Works just a well with chicken!




  1. Heat butter or oil in a large {4-6 qt.} soup pot over medium heat and add onions, carrots, celery, garlic, and curry powder. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes until vegetables are tender.
  2. Add stock and rice, bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer until rice is done – about 15 minutes for white rice, 30-40 minutes for brown.
  3. Stir in chopped turkey or chicken, coconut milk and spinach. Bring to a simmer and cook until heated through, 5-10 minutes more.


Cooking time is for brown rice – it will be less if using white rice.
