3cupscooked wild rice
5sprigs fresh thyme
Warm the olive oil in an enameled cast iron skillet over medium heat. Toss in the onion, celery and carrots, and sprinkle the salt over them. Stir to coat the vegetables in olive oil, and cover the pot with a lid. Turn down the heat to medium-low and allow the vegetables to sweat for five to six minutes, or until the onions turn translucent.
Uncover the pot, and stir in the chopped turkey and the wild rice. Drop the fresh thyme into the pot at simmer for twenty to thirty minutes or until the vegetables are tender. Using tongs, pluck out any tough stems of thyme, and discard them. Adjust the soup's seasoning, and serve hot.
This soup will keep in the fridge about five days or frozen up to six months.
How to Cook Wild Rice in the Instant Pot. This recipe calls for cooked wild rice. Precooking the wild rice reduces the amount of bone broth you must use and reduces the cooking time of the soup. I recommend cooking the wild rice in an Instant Pot, by placing 1 cup wild rice in the pressure cooker's insert, pouring in enough water to cover it by 2 inches and cooking under pressure for 15 minutes before draining.
