This soup is a perfect recipe for Thanksgiving leftovers. My husband and I love dumplings, and this mild-tasting, homey dish has flavorful dumplings floating on a tasty turkey and vegetable stew. It really hits the spot on chilly fall and winter days.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Melt butter in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Saute carrots, celery, and onion for 10 minutes. Add 4 cups water, consomme, salt, and pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and cover. Cook until vegetables are tender, about 15 minutes.

  • Add turkey and beans to the vegetables. Cook for 5 minutes. Mix flour and Worcestershire sauce with remaining water in a bowl until smooth; stir into turkey mixture. Increase heat and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer soup until thickened, about 5 minutes.

  • For the dumplings, combine flour, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Stir in parsley and poultry seasoning. Combine milk and egg in a separate bowl; stir into flour mixture until just moistened. Drop mixture by tablespoons onto the simmering soup. Cover and simmer until a toothpick inserted into a dumpling comes out clean, about 20 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

May use 2 cups of leftover turkey stock/broth instead of beef broth.

Substitute green beans with peas if desired.

Very easy recipe to follow. I made some subtle changes only based on my personal preferences. I didn't add the carrots green beans or peas because my wife doesn't like them however I'll probably add them to my bowl. SHHH LOL. Also I substituted the parsley for a bit of Italian seasoning in the dumplings. When I make it again I'm going to experiment with just rosemary in the dumplings. It's a wonderfully fragrant and delicious recipe either way. Read More
