I’d like to thank Knorr for sponsoring my Turkey and Rice Soup recipe.

I love the holidays, but let’s face it, this time of year is also more than a little stressful thanks to all the hustle and bustle of the season.

I love creating one-pan recipes using ground turkey. My kids actually prefer it to ground beef, and I find that it adds a wonderful flavor to this hearty soup.

This is ground turkey and rice soup has such rich and delicious flavor thanks to the Knorr Selects Spinach and Artichoke Rice, which features asiago and cheddar cheeses. This is truly the perfect soup to help you unwind and relax after a busy day.

I love using ground turkey in my soups, but, ground pork would also taste great in this recipe. Check out my easy ground pork tacos if you’re a fan of cooking with ground pork.

    What seasonings would I add if using plain rice instead of the already seasoned rice?

  2. Constance Reply

    How much water?

  3. Alking Reply

    I could not find the rice either so I used plain white rice and more seasonings and it was absolutely delish, I’ve made a few times more.

    • JDTay Reply

      What seasoning did you add? The recipe does not really call for any since the rice is supposed to be seasoned.

  4. Allison Reply

    I sub Uncle Ben’s Long Grain & Wild Grain rice recipe for the Knorr mix. Turns out delicious!

  5. Taylor Reply

    I want to try this recipe but can’t find the rice side packet anywhere. I think it’s discontinued or something. Any ideas on what else I could use??

  6. April Reply

    I substituted coconut milk for whole milk and used Knorr’s Chicken rice instead of the spinach and artichoke rice. It came out delicious!

  7. Tiffany Reply

    I also can’t find the Knorr Selects spinach artichoke. I checked Walmart and Publix. I’m just going to use plain rice and add my own favorite seasonings

  8. Annette Reply

    I cannot find the Knorrs Spinach and artichoke packet either. Can you offer a substitute? Otherwise I am going to add 1 .5 cups of rice with some cheese and fresh spinach maybe?


  9. Alexandria Reply

    Can this soup be frozen. Im guessing no because of the milk but wanted to ask if you tried it.

  10. Anna Belluomini Reply

    Hi Crissy,
    I’ve been dying to try your recipe but I can’t find the knorr selects spinach and artichoke rice packets anywhere near where I live. Do u know where I could buy some of those packets? Pls let me know asap thank u!

      I’m in the same boat. Went to 3 different stores. No one sells the rice. Frustrating

      • Nikki

        I tried it with a box of Rice a Roni long grain and wild rice and it was delicious! You could probably use any flavor you like!

    Can I use almond milk?

    • Kailamai Reply

      I used half a cup unsweetened almond milk to test it out and it made it too sweet. I then added more chicken stock to counter it. I didn’t like how it made it taste. Once I countered it, it was amazing!
