"Just the best turkey soup ever. If you brined your turkey, you will need to add less salt to the soup."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

water, or as needed

Great recipe - thank you. I roasted a boneless turkey breast with olive oil, rosemary and thyme and added to the soup to 'boost' the turkey content since we didn't have any leftovers and the carcass was a bit slim on meat. My hubby and 3 yr old loved it. Will definitely make again.
This soup was awesome! Only thing I added was a little extra salt. My husband actually said "wow!" And started telling his friends how good it was! Will DEFINITELY make this again!
I made this soup using the carcass of a smoked turkey. It was great! I also accidently put in 1 tsp. of dried thyme rather than 1 pinch of dried thyme. My family loves it. I'm making it again today with 1 tsp of dried thyme. Why mess with success!? - Kay Schroden
I just finished making this soup and it turned out unbelievable. I will put this on my personal 5 star recipes that are 'tried and true' I made mine in the crock pot to get the best out of the carcass for 8 hours on low with the celery, onion, carrots and 2 chicken boullions. Drained the bones and let the broth rest in refrigerator overnight. Then I did the remainder of the recipe on the stove top over a low simmer for 1 hour and 20 minutes til barely was nice and tender. Hot french bread is a must with this tastey soup.
I tried this, but added some broccoli and turnip. This has to be the easiest and best tasting recipe I've tried yet! Thanks!
Making this for the second time, this time with a turkey I smoked a couple days ago. Last time we had it was great. The entire family loved it. It is simple but has plenty of flavor. Added a little garlic powder and poultry seasoning to my taste. Can't believe there only 6 ratings so far for this.
This was delicious! I did modify it a bit. I added parsnips to when making the stock. And when assembling the soup I went ahead and sautéed all the veggies (added parsnips here too, I love parsnips!) before adding them just to intensify the flavor. Then made a simple rue of 2tbs coconut oil 2tbs butter and a 1/4c flour. To thicken it and make it heartier and more stew like! Again it was AM-A-ZING!
