  1. Combine turkey carcass pieces, water, bouillon, and bay leaf in a large Dutch oven. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 1 hour.
  2. Remove turkey carcass pieces, reserving broth. Remove meat once cool and discard bones.
  3. Strain broth; return broth and turkey to the Dutch oven. Add cabbage, great Northern beans, garbanzo beans, tomatoes, onion, parsley, garlic, basil, and pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, until flavors meld, 25 to 30 minutes.


  • Cook's Note:
  • You can use the greens of your choice in place of the cabbage.
