If you are planning on making soup with leftover turkey this Thanksgiving, here's a tip for adding a little extra nutrition for your family. Put into the soup pot 1 cup of plain pumpkin. No one will ever know it's in there. It adds a rich color while supplying immune-boosting nutrients. It also somewhat thickens the broth. I use canned pumpkin, not the pie filling.

  • 2 turkey thighs
  • 1 medium onion-sliced
  • 2 carrots-sliced
  • 1 carrot-shredded
  • 2 celery stalks-sliced
  • celery leaves-center of stalks (rinse well and chop)

  • 1 large can of chicken broth
  • 1 tsp. chicken base {or bouillon}
  • garlic powder
  • black pepper
  • pinch of dried parsley flakes
  • pinch of country herbs
  • 1/2 package fine egg noodles (cook according to package)


Season turkey thighs with garlic powder, pepper and brown in a Dutch oven or stock pot skin side down first, then flip. (no need to add oil). Add chicken stock, onions, carrots (sliced and shredded), celery and leaves, chicken base, parsley flakes and country herbs. Put heat on low, cover and simmer for 2 hours.

Remove thighs to a plate, remove the meat from the bones and return to pot. Discard bones. Add noodles to each bowl, spoon soup over noodles. Can serve with fresh baked bread.

Options: add corn, green beans, etc. Use chicken thighs/legs instead of turkey thighs

FYI: I don't add any salt due to the chicken base/bouillon. The shredded carrots gives the broth a nice color.

In a large saucepan, combine all ingredients with 6 cups of water. Simmer, covered, until rice is cooked, approximately 30 minutes. Great with fresh bread.

In a Dutch oven, saute onions in oil until tender. Stir in flour and curry until blended. Gradually stir in broth. Add the potatoes, celery, carrots, parsley, and sage. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 10 to 12 minutes or until vegetables are tender.

Recipe forTurkey Chowder Soup. Boil broth, potatoes, celery and carrots together until tender, approximately 20 minutes. Then add butter. In a blender combine milk and flour. Stir into soup mixture to thicken. It will become like a thin gravy.

To make this popular soup lower in saturated fat, prepare it ahead of time to cool and skim off the fat that rises to the top.
