This is a creative and hearty use of leftover turkey. For another great use, try this turkey pot pie.

2 packages long grain and wild rice pilaf
10 cups chicken broth, divided
3 tablespoons plus ¼ cup margarine, divided
2 (8-ounce) packages sliced mushrooms
1 onion, chopped
2 stalks celery, chopped
½ cup flour
½ cup nondairy creamer
¼ cup white wine
2 cups shredded cooked turkey

In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, bring rice, 1 seasoning packet and 4 cups chicken broth to a boil. Cover, reduce heat and simmer for about 20 minutes, until liquid is absorbed. Set aside. In the meantime, melt 3 tablespoons margarine in a large skillet over medium heat; add mushrooms, onion and celery; sauté for about 10 minutes. In a large stock pot, melt remaining ¼ cup margarine over medium heat. Add flour and whisk to blend. Gradually whisk in remaining 6 cups broth and cook, stirring frequently, until slightly thickened, about 8 minutes. Whisk in nondairy creamer and wine. Stir in mushroom mixture, turkey and rice. Heat through – 5 to 10 minutes.
