Leftover Turkey Soup

Leftover Turkey Soup

I don’t know about you but I still have quite a bit of turkey leftover from Thanksgiving dinner. We’ve been eating sandwiches all weekend and wanted to try something different to use up the last of the turkey. Luckily, with a bit of recipe searching I was able to whip up a quick, and tasty, Leftover Turkey Soup.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups broth of choice (check out this great recipe to make your own turkey broth)
  • 2 cups leftover turkey, shredded
  • 2 cups milk or dairy-free milk alternative
  • 1 can beans of choice (I used black beans to add more color)
  • 1 cup of frozen corn or frozen veggie of choice
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 stalks of celery, chopped
  • 1 large carrot, chopped
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp oil of choice (I used organic canola oil)
  • 1 tsp chili powder (you can make it 2 if you prefer spic
  • tsp cayenne pepper (optional)
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • fresh parsley for garnish

Instructions

  • Heat oil in a large stockpot. Add chopped carrots and celery. Cook for 3-5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Add chopped onion, minced garlic, chili powder, and cayenne pepper (optional), stirring occasionally.
  • Add broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover and allow to simmer for 10-15 minutes.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk milk, flour and salt. Add to soup and stir until incorporated. After roughly 5 minutes, you should see the soup thicken slightly.
  • Add the shredded turkey and corn. Season with salt and pepper, if desired. Simmer for an additional 10-15 minutes. When ready to serve, garnish with chopped parsley.
