HomemadeTurkey Soup

I hope you had a great Holiday and enjoyed a nice family meal.  I know that for most of you the menu included turkey.  But what do you do with the left over of the turkey?

With the left over of the turkey, you can make an excellent turkey soup.

This is the soup I made with the left over of my Turkey last night. It’s very easy and just delicious.

Turkey Soup

So I made a huge soup because I gave half of it to a friend,  In my soup I put the following ingredients:

3 Leeks

8 Carrots

5 Potatoes

On Celery bunch

Wash all vegetables thoroughly.  Soak the leeks and and celery cut off in water and white vinegar for about 5 minutes in a kitchen tub and repeat two more time in water only.

Then shred all the vegetables in a food processor to obtain something like this

Turkey Left Over

Add chicken 2 chicken cubes bouillon, salt and paper.

I hope you enjoy your turkey soup if you decide to make one. Leave your comments below!

  1. Sylviane,
    this is so funny, my cousins in Canada Diane always makes turkey soup too.

    Personally, I don’t care for turkey and rarely eat it. Ironically, turkey is everywhere here in France. Was it like that when you lived here growing up? I am actually surprised at the popularity of turkey here.

    We did not celebrate thanksgiving this year but we did have some amazing champignons Sanguins poêlés à l’ail et au persil. mmmmmm my first time having it and i love it. …

    1. Hi Annie,

      Yep, another person telling me she doesn’t like turkey. I’m finding out how many people don’t, now 🙂

      Yes, turkey is common in France and especially around Christmas where turkey is served in most households for Christmas dinner.

      I can tell that you have got used to French cuisine with your champignons Sanguins poêlés. My mother used to make that. It’s really delicious.

      Thanks for your visit, Annie 🙂

  2. Yum, you got one of my favorite things of all time here, Sylviane! It’s funny, I’m not a huge fan of turkey. It’s ok if you cover it in gravy and mashed potatoes but it’s pretty boring. But I LOVE turkey soup. I could eat it all day. I usually leave the veggies in big chunks though, so you can eat them right out of the soup. I like to get a giant turkey but not eat much of it, then turn the rest into a gigantic pot of soup that I can freeze and eat all winter 🙂 I like to put some kind of pasta in it usually, too. Like maybe orzo or little elbows. But I cook that separately and add it when I need it, otherwise it turns into mush. I didn’t make a turkey this year but now I might have to buy one just for the soup!

    1. Hi Carol,

      I guess we can add you to the list of all the people I hear who don’t like turkey. I’m OK with turkey, but I agree that without the gravy it’s boring. Sophie, my cat loves turkey and she ate her share 🙂

      Yes, you can cut the veggies as big or small as you want. I like it with big chunks of veggies as well and added noodles. Good idea to separate the pasta, though, because as you said it will become very mushy if you don’t.

      Thanks for YOUR recipe, Carol.

    1. Hi Sue,

      Ahaha, what a boring post for you if you don’t like turkey. Lots of people don’t, actually. If you like chicken it would work just the same, though.

      I know for you soup is not very appetizing right now. Here is kinda chilly these days and I’m eating soup for dinner every day.

      Thanks for your visit, Sue 🙂

  3. Hello Sylvianne, Great Recipe, Easy and for sure very useful with allot of left over turkey. I bet this would also work great with chicken. Soup is also very healthy for a person. Thanks and I sure will try this out. Have a great Day.

    1. Hi Carol,

      Yes, this would work great with chicken as well. You could also add noodles to this recipe. Sometimes I do if I want the extra carbs. Most of the time I don’t need it though 🙂

  4. My best friend always makes turkey soup and it’s pretty darn good too. I like to make sandwiches out of it myself because I’m not a big soup person. I prefer it mostly when I’m not feeling good or it’s really cold outside which of course rarely happens here.

    Either way, simple recipe and I do love simple.

    Thanks Sylviane!

    1. Hi Adrienne,

      Sorry, it looks like your comment was a bit stuck between a bunch of comments that want to look genuine as we talked about last night, but are really spams. I think I’ve got the same collection of girls as Raena does.

      I’m not a huge fan of soup, but I do eat soup almost every night in the winter, mainly because it’s good for you and warm you up 🙂

      Thanks for coming Adrienne, and I’m glad I spot your comment 🙂
