2 lb cooked turkey, roughly chopped into cubes
2 tablespoons butter
1 large onion, chopped
1 large carrot, chopped into 1-inch thick discs

Melt butter over medium heat in a 6 Quart Dutch Oven. Add onions, mushrooms, carrots, celery, and shallots and stir until soft. Then, mix in flour and slowly stir in heavy cream, wild rice, and chicken broth. Once combined, add bay leaf for aromatic effect.
Switch to high heat until the soup reaches a boil. Then, reduce heat to medium-low and cover. Cook for 30 minutes, or until the rice is fully cooked.
Remove the bay leaf and stir the herbs into the pot. Add salt and pepper to taste and garnish with parsley, if desired. Serve and enjoy.
