Leftover Turkey from Thanksgiving? Soup it! 

My family is not a big fan of turkey meat. But we do like soups and my mom is who we turn to when we’re craving a bowl of warmth and comfort.. Especially in the winter. She makes the best soups!

Anyway, we had so much turkey leftover from the previous days so we thought why not turn it into something healthy and delicious.

You will need:

  • Cooked turkey meat
  • Diced canned tomatoes
  • Onion
  • Garlic
  • Carrots
  • Celery
  • Mushrooms
  • Dried oregano
  • Dried parsley
  • Broth (chicken/turkey/vegetable)
  • Egg noodles (or any pasta of choice)


  1. Pick out any left over meat from the turkey bones.  
  2. In a big pan, boil the bones in water for 20 minutes.  
  3. After boiling the bones well, take out from broth and separate the meat from bones when it cools.  
  4. Pour out the broth into a separate dish and put it in the refrigerator to skim out the excess fat later.  
  5. In the big pan, sauté onion, garlic, celery.  
  6. Add in carrots, diced tomato, mushrooms, parley and oregano. Let cook for about 10 minutes in medium to high heat.  
  7. Throw in the turkey and pour in the skimmed broth. If you want it to be soupy you may add desired amounts of store bought broth. Remember, you still have to add in your uncooked noodles!  
  8. Cover and let boil for about 10 -15 minutes.
  9. Add in noodles and let boil. My mom used Skinner’s Extra Wide Egg Noodles. 
  10. Bring the soup to a boil.  
  11. When the noodles are cooked, your soup is done.

Tip: If your soup is too watery, continue boiling  for another 5-10minutes or until some of the moisture has evaporated.

You can now serve this healthy soup. I like it with some toasted French bread 🙂 Enjoy!

And stay beautiful from within..
