Vegetable & Leftover Turkey Soup

Submitted by: ELENASAN

Introduction

This is not only a great way to use up leftover turkey, but is very low calorie and, if you use no-salt corn, low in sodium too. Use whatever vegetables you like. Our family tops each serving with a tsp of Parmesan cheese. This is not only a great way to use up leftover turkey, but is very low calorie and, if you use no-salt corn, low in sodium too.

Ingredients

    1/2 bag (8 oz.) baby carrots
    3 stalks celery, chopped
    1.5 small onion, chopped
    about 12 oz. leftover turkey, bite sized pieces
    16 oz bag of frozen peas
    1 can whole kernel corn (nutrition info uses no salt corn)
    Herbs to taste (I use about 2 tsp rosemary and 2 Tbsp parsley)

Directions

Put carrots, celery and onion in pot with 6 cups of water and bring to boil. Lower and simmer with lid on.

In the meantime, cut leftover turkey into bite sized pieces and add to pot with herbs. Add peas and let all simmer until peas are tender. Add corn.

Let simmer at least 30 minutes, until tastes mingle and turkey begins to fall apart. An hour is better.

Makes about 90 oz. Nutritional info is by the oz.
A normal 12 oz. serving is under 130 calories.

  • This was excellent! I replaced the frozen peas with a can of Sauerkraut, which gave the soup more of a thickness instead of being watery! I used corn on the cob corn (scraped it off) and it was great! - 5/20/12

    Made it again this year and also added the bones (not much meat on the carcass once my brother's done with it). This year's left over veggie was succotash, so I just threw that in instead of the peas and corn.
