Directions

  1. Combine turkey carcass, halved onion, roughly chopped carrot, roughly chopped celery, halved garlic head, 1 teaspoon rosemary, thyme, bay leaves, salt, and pepper in a stockpot; pour in enough water to cover. Bring mixture to a boil, cover pot, reduce heat, and simmer until flavors have blended, about 1 hour.
  2. Remove turkey carcass and pull remaining meat from bones; reserve meat and discard carcass. Remove vegetables and bay leaves from stock using a slotted spoon and discard.
  3. Stir diced onions, diced carrots, diced celery, minced garlic, poultry seasoning, 1 teaspoon rosemary, and onion powder into stock; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover pot, and simmer until vegetables are very tender, 20 to 30 minutes. Add cooked rice and turkey meat to soup; season with salt and pepper. Cook until rice and turkey meat are warmed, about 5 minutes.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • You can use other turkey than a carcass. Simply roast legs or thighs in the oven until cooked and browned nicely, then continue with instructions for the stock.
  • This is a low-fat recipe. To further reduce the fat, you can make the stock ahead and chill in the fridge. Any fat will come to the top and be easily removed. Don't hesitate to add any further leftovers of your choice!

Just made this soup today and it was fantastic........if I do say so myself! The only thing I changed was I used egg noodles instead of rice.
