This will be a quick post today as I am about to head out to do some shopping but wanted to share with you my favorite easy soup to make with leftover turkey I make this every year for my family and they love it !
- 1 onion
- 4 carrots
- 3 stalks celery
- 2 parsnips or turnips (optional)
- leftover turkey meat
- Broth (I like to make my broth out of the turkey carcass but you can use store-bought!)
- 1 can cream of celery or cream of chicken
- 1 bag whole wheat noodles, cooked al dente
If you want to make homemade broth, it’s a little time consuming but I think it’s worth it. Just put your turkey carcass into a large pot and cover with water. Simmer on low heat for 2-4 hours…the longer the better ! Strain the broth into a large bowl and chill in the refrigerator. Skim the fat off the top and voila you have homemade broth
Saute the veggies in a little olive oil until softened. Add your broth, turkey, cream of chicken and cooked noodles and simmer for 15-20 minutes. I sometimes add a cup of frozen corn to this too…YUM !
I will also be posting again about my sister-in-law’s butternut squash casserole she brought to Thanksgiving. It was AMAZING ! I posted on it a couple months ago but mine wasn’t nearly as good as hers because of some substitutions I made. Hers was a big hit with everyone … I will be making it for Christmas eve dinner this year too.
