Turkey Soup

Photo by:

Turkey bones alone don’t do the trick for this soup. It’s the leftover stuffing that gives it the flavor and body it needs. After tasting this soup, you’ll find it’s a great way to use your holiday leftovers.

Yield: 10 cups

INGREDIENTS
  • 1 turkey carcass, broken into pieces (optional)
  • 11½ cups cold water
  • 2½ cups leftover turkey stuffing
  • 2 cups turkey gravy
  • 3 carrots, peeled and thickly sliced
  • 3 ribs celery with leaves, sliced
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • ½ cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 teaspoons dried thyme, crumbled
  • Salt to taste

Directions

Put all the ingredients with 10 cups of the water in a large soup pot over medium heat, bring to a boil, and then reduce the heat to a simmer.

Stir to break up all the clumps of stuffing, and mix well. Let the soup simmer for about 1½ hours.

Add the remaining 1½ cups of cold water and let simmer for 10 more minutes. Taste for salt and adjust the flavoring if necessary. Serve hot.
