Turkey Soup

Turkey Soup

Here's a soup recipe that will warm you up during the fluctuating cold weather we've been experiencing this winter.

This is my chicken soup recipe, however, in the recipe below, I substituted a whole chicken with 2 turkey legs and 2 turkey breasts.

Be creative!  Add a scoop of homemade noodles.  If there's no time to make your own noodles, find the smallest pasta on your grocery store's shelf.  Boil it on the side and add a scoop to the bottom of your bowl before pouring in the soup.

Another option is to substitute the pasta with rice.

Personally, I don't like adding the pasta  or rice directly into the soup while it's boiling because it gets overcooked and absorbs all the juice from the soup.

Turkey legs & breast
1 large Onion
3 Carrots
3 Celery sticks
Salt & Pepper

1.  Boil 2 turkey legs and 2 turkey breasts.

2. Skim fat from top of water.

3.  While turkey is boiling, prepare onion, celery and carrots.

4. Chop up the onions, celery and carrots to your desired shape and size.

5.  Melt a piece of butter and sauté onions until they're translucent.

6.  Add celery and carrots to the onions.

7.  Season with salt and pepper.

8.  Add consommé from boiled turkey and simmer.

9.  Debone the turkey.

10.  Cut meat into small pieces.

11.  Add pieces of meat to the consommé.

12.  Stir in the meat and boil until vegetables are softened.

13.  Optional:  add a scoop of rice, pasta, or noodles into soup.
