Never again will left-over turkey be thought of as mundane once you feast on this delectable risotto. Sautéed white mushrooms and onions along with Arborio rice become creamy yet al dente as turkey stock is slowly stirred into this traditional Italian dish. Then add splash of white wine, diced turkey, and Parmigiano. If you're in a flamboyant mood, you might shave on fresh white truffles. For the rest of us mortals, this is already a heavenly celebration that must be served immediately.
This light, flavorful soup is a favorite in Japan, served for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, with an array of garnishes including rice, eggs, simmered radishes and cabbage, pickles, tender fresh greens, and fish.

This recipe is easily doubled or quadrupled.
Here's a terrific, hearty soup recipe created by TheSauceDude's sister, Lu, who really knows how to work her way around a kitchen. It's an ideal weekend recipe on a cold winter day, which they have plenty of in Lu's home state of Minnesoooohta. A great combination of earthy flavors from mushrooms balanced nicely with potatoes, sweet onion, carrots, and corn. Gluten free and vegetarian as is. We like to serve it with some warm cornbread, and one of our cooks adds a bit of cream for a more decadent dish.
