Turkey Soup

November 28, 2012
Looking to use up those Thanksgiving leftovers? I decided to put mine to good use by making a simple turkey soup. It's warm, filling and perfect for this time of year.
Here's what you'll need:
1 Tbsp EVOO
1 glove garlic
1 small onion, chopped
3 14oz cans chicken broth (try using low sodium)
2 large carrots, chopped
3 stalks of celery, chopped
6 oz chopped or pulled turkey (white meat, no skin)
1 1/2 cups pasta of choice (I used whole wheat penne, you could also use rice)
Juice from half a lemon
Salt & pepper to taste
First, sautee the onion and garlic with EVOO over medium-high heat. I love using onion and garlic because they add tons of flavor without all the salt.
Once the onion is tender, add broth, carrots and celery
Bring to a low boil and cook for about 10 minutes. Then, add turkey and simmer for about 5-7 minutes. Next, add lemon and seasonings.
I'm a huge lemon lover and add it to anything I can. Soup is no exception!
Lastly, add the pasta and cook until tender.
Serve hot with a piece of crusty bread for a delicious meal! Enjoy!
