Turkey Wild Rice Soup

From Mom’s friend Cheryl, who is a great cook.

1 medium onion, chopped
2 celery ribs, thinly sliced
2 carrots, diced
½ cup butter
½ cup flour
4 cups chicken broth
2 cups wild rice, cooked
2 cups milk (1/2 &1/2 if you like)
2 cups cooked turkey, diced
1 teaspoon parsley
½ teaspoon salt, pepper, paprika

In large kettle sauté onion, carrots and celery in butter until onion is transparent. Reduce heat and blend in flour, cook till bubbly. Slowly add broth, stirring constantly. Add all other ingredients and simmer for 20 minutes. I cook a whole package of wild rice at once because it takes so long. Then I freeze 2 cups of it with 2 cups of turkey, so I have that part already done for another time.
