Smokey turkey and bean soup (Father inspired)
IntroductionThis is a mix of recipes and I think it comes out pretty well. The turkey leg takes the place of a ham bone. I grew up with my dad making ham and beans and I have been trying to find a good substitute for it. Can not live without my dad's great cooking.

1 smoked Turkey leg
2 med. onions, chopped
5 cloves garlic, mashed and minced
1 T. extra virgin olive oil
2 large carrots, chopped
2 large celery ribs, chopped
8 cups homemade chicken stock fat removed
2 cups brewed coffee
1/2 cup nutritional yeast
2 T. Mrs. Dash original blend
2 pounds white beans or butter beans
salt and pepper to taste
Saute onions, carrots and celery in olive oil for 5 minutes and then add garlic and saute.
Add everything but the salt and turkey and boil till beans are tender. About 2 hours If they don't get tender put 1/8 baking soda per pound of beans into the water. That usually does the trick.
After beans are cooked at salt and turkey leg and cook for another hour till turkey falls off the bone. Make sure you get all of the bones out and serve with some nutritional yeast on top.
Add water to soup as it is cooking if needed I usually cook with the lid on and a slow rolling boil. I did not add the soaking time fast or overnight into the prep time.
