Introduction

Low sodium, low fat version of a comfort food that uses up that leftover turkey from Thanksgiving. Note: I couldn't find just plain, roasted turkey (from a whole turkey) in the food list, so I picked a Butterball Turkey Roast, which is probably actually higher in sodium and fat than a normal roast turkey but I figured better to list higher than lower stats. So if you use a healthy, unbrined, unprocessed whole turkey to begin with, this recipe will actually be healthier. And I wasn't sure exactly the weight of 2 cups of cooked, cubed turkey so I estimated.

You can also substitute regular milk (I use almond milk because it's much lower in calories than milk and it's non-dairy) although that will add calories/fat/etc. You can also use 1 cup of water + 1 tsp chicken bouillon powder instead of the chicken broth, but that will add a significant amount of sodium to the recipe, unless you use low sodium bouillon.
