I can't believe this recipe only has 11 reviews! It's delicious! Are you looking to make soup with turkey leftovers but hate all that bland stuff that's out there? Me too. Thankfully this is a great recipe that does not disappoint. Zippy is a great word for it--enough spice that it's 'kicked up' without being hot. After adding two cans of stewed tomatoes I ended up adding an additional can of diced while the soup was simmering. I think next time I'll just opt for diced tomatoes as the stewed chunks seem too big in the soup. Instead of rice I used 1/2 cup of Orzo that I had on-hand. Other than that I followed the recipe over the course of two days. I made the broth the evening we had the turkey refrigerated it overnight skimmed the fat that separated and then added all additional ingredients the next day. I already printed this and have added it to my trusty recipe binder in my kitchen. Thanks for the great soup M Vidito
We really enjoyed this! It is a recipe that is very adjustable to your taste. I started with 3 quarts of stock I had already prepared the recipe didn't really call for a specific amount of liquid so I eyeballed the rest. I only used one can of stewed tomatoes and half the rice which was perfect for our taste it didn't absorb all of the liquid leaving it more like soup than stew. Didn't add the corn. We liked the hearty nature of this turkey soup and would make this again! Thank you!
This is a really great soup. I made up the broth strained it and put it in the refrigerator to separate the fat and make it easy to skim off. We like spicy so I added about 1/2 tsp of chili flakes as well. Very tasty and healthy too.
Excellent turkey rice soup! We loved the mix of herbs and spices and added a little extra fresh thyme. The only other change was to use one 14.5 oz. can of diced fire roasted tomatoes. Don't really need a second can. Yum!
I'm giving this four stars instead of five because I made some changes but It turned out great. As per previous reviewers I added only one can of tomatoes and omitted the corn. I had broccoli on hand but no green beans so in went the broccoli. And maybe most importantly I omitted the ginger and added 2 tsp. smoked Spanish paprika which gave the soup a wonderful smoky flavor. This will be our go-to turkey soup recipe from now on.
The spices in this recipe create such an amazing flavor...I didn't have a carcass but just put all of our leftover turkey in a pot with the bay leaves onions and celery leaves and simmered for an hour. Then followed the rest of it. Oh and I used wild rice instead of long grain rice. You should try it! So so good!!!
