Turkey SoupSo many leftovers from Thanksgiving! I’ve been stuffing myself on leftovers ever since the big day. Today, I finally had some free time to make some turkey soup. I used mostly leftover ingredients in my soup. I had a ton of leftover corn and green beans, so I threw that in as well.

Turkey Stock
1 turkey carcass
6 quarts of water, or more to cover
2 cups chopped celery
2 cups chopped carrots
2 cups chopped onions
1 bay leaf
small bunch of fresh parsley
salt, to taste
black pepper, to taste

Turkey Soup
1 cup chopped carrots
1 cup shopped onions
1 cup chopped celery
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 1/2 cups corn
1 1/2 cups green beans, chopped
leftover turkey meat, chopped
salt, to taste
black pepper, to taste
chopped parsley

Turkey SoupTo make the stock, place the turkey carcass in a large pot and cover with water. Place over high heat. Add the onions, carrots, celery, parsley, bay leaf, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, then simmer for at least 4 hours while skimming the top. After the stock is ready, pour it through a strainer and discard the bones, veggies.

Take the stock and place it over medium-high heat. Add the carrots, onions, celery, corn, green beans, turkey meat, salt, pepper, parsley and marjoram. Simmer for about 45 minutes until all the veggies are tender.
