Instructions Checklist
  • In a large soup pot, heat garlic in the olive oil. Allow to brown slightly and add onion, carrot and celery. Cover; sweat over medium-low heat until softened, 7 or 8 minutes. Add the chopped sage to the soup pot along with the broth and the bay leaf. Bring to a simmer. When simmering, add the green beans, sweet potato and pasta to the soup. Bring it back up to a simmer; lower heat and cook for about 10 minutes or until vegetables are tender and pasta is cooked. Stir in turkey. Turn the heat off. Cover, and allow to sit and steam for 5 to 7 minutes.

Pretty good soup. I followed the recipe with two minor exceptions: I used about 1.5 cups (instead of 1/2 cup) of Skinners Wide Egg Noodles as the pasta, and I used white meat turkey instead of dark meat. The broth I used was home made turkey broth made from our Thanksgiving turkey carcass. The rub I'd used on my turkey added some flavor to the soup, otherwise I think some rosemary would have been nice. Also would probably be good with wild rice. This will likely become my weekend-after-Thanksgiving staple recipe. Read More

It was delicious, except I felt like it was lacking a flavor. Instead of using sweet potato I used Russet so that might be it. Read More

This is the first turkey soup I've ever made that tasted wonderful. I love turkey soup but I usually love OTHER people's turkey soup. Now I love mine! I didn't have the bay leaf or sage leaves so I added thyme rosemary basil a touch of poultry seasoning and sat and pepper. Yummers! Read More

This was great I was really impressed with the way it turned out! Didn't measure just used left over dark turkey meat and 'scrapes' that I had brined and soup turned out very hearty. I think the biggest change is I used white potatoes instead of the sweet potatoes and used Ditalini pasta instead of the ultra micro kind. Anyway thanks for sharing. Read More

My picky toddlers had mixed responses to this but my husband and I both loved this recipe! Great mix of veggies turkey and noodles and relatively quick to make. I did end up adding a bit of salt and pepper at the end and then it was perfect. Read More

Did a quick search for an easy Turkey Veg Soup recipe with so many to choose from this one seemed the quickest/easiest; I used a smoked turkey leg and this recipe turned out amazing. Read More

OMG! This was so delicious!!! I normally fiddle with recipes adding this or that but I stayed true to the ingredients and was so pleased. My 3 y/o ate it all up and hubby and I had seconds. I bought turkey cutlets and boiled them separately prior to making the soup. Did have to add salt and pepper at the end to taste but that was just because of the broth I used. Used ditalini pasta and was perfect for this soup. Will definitely make again. Read More
