Turkey soup is probably one of the easiest meal to make. I have been making this soup for a longtime using the leftover turkey. I like flavorful food, this year we had Cajun spiced butterball turkey. We had plenty of leftover turkey breast meat for good use.
I used mostly what we had in pantry and refrigerator to make soup. I used red and green pepper, mushroom, onion and red potatoes and spinach for veggies. We typically have organic chicken broth in pantry, so I did not bother making turkey stock out of the leftover turkey. This made the preparation process lot easier.
Just cube and stir fry the veggies in a large pot. I planned on using tomatoes with recipe but later decided not to use. Add chicken broth and add cubed turkey meat. Spice the soup to your taste. It’s always important to taste the food you are preparing, this way you can balance right amount of spices to have a tasty dish.
