Leftover Turkey Soup like mom used to make it, well almost…
Leftover Turkey Soup Recipe: can be easy to make or it can take a little effort and a long time….
It all depends how you make it. If you take the Turkey carcass and the wings etc. the ones none of your friends and relatives wanted to eat or take home, you can make Turkey Stock. (If you would like I could write a post about that).
If that is too much trouble you can substitute and save yourself four hours by buying quality Turkey Stock in any of the finer stores like Bristol Farms, Whole Foods, Trader Joes or Sprouts. (Just to be clear I made the stock from scratch)
Ingredients for the soup:
Chopped carrots, onions and celery about two or three cups worth
Two or three cloves of garlic(minced)
Few sprigs of fresh parsley
Sage, thyme and marjoram, basil.
Sundried Tomatoes or fresh tomatoes.
Fresh button mushrooms
Chopped leftover turkey meat
Rotini pasta or what ever pasta you have available such as egg noodle or rice noodles or left-over rice. (I prefer Rotini pasta because of size and it fill up the bowls nicer and easier to eat)
Preparation of the soup:
Just like you make chicken soup sauté the carrots, onions and celery and the garlic in a large soup pot. I like to sauté the vegetables in extra virgin olive oil. I have a system garlic first, followed by onions then the carrots and the celery last, I add the kale. Last, I add the mushrooms.
Then I add the Stock and the parsley and the rest of the seasoning and a little salt.
Followed by the turkey meat and the potatoes and the sundried tomatoes.
Basically, once the soup is relatively ready then I add the pasta for about six or seven minutes.
I taste for seasoning, not a fan of salt or pepper so use it as you would like it…
The Last step will bring the soup to the next level:
Ladle a balanced portion into each Prepared Pumpkin ( How to make a Pumpkin soup bowl ) making sure all ingredients are in the containers. Heat oven to about 400 degrees and bake for about 25 minutes. Please time it, so you guests get to see as you pull the soup out of the oven for special effect!
Place containers under a large plate that can take the liquids of the soup in case there is a defect in your soup container😊!
Once you tried it let me know how it turned out! Bon Appetite!! If you want to use other soups in this container it will go just as well and it will be a hit!
