Directions

  1. Heat olive oil in a large stockpot over medium-high heat. Cook and stir 2 chopped carrots, onion, and celery until onion is golden, 7 to 10 minutes. Pour in wine and bring to a simmer. Add turkey carcass, chicken stock, water, bay leaf, and bouquet garni; bring mixture to a boil.
  2. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook, partially covered, for about 1 hour. Skim any fat that comes to the surface and discard.
  3. Remove turkey carcass and strain soup into a large saucepan over medium heat. Stir in leftover turkey and diced carrot; simmer until warmed through, about 5 minutes. Serve garnished with fresh tarragon.

The soup was easy, quick and sooo delicious. The one thing that I changed was that I added four more cups of water. The soup was still full of flavor.

I thought this was okay, but a bit bland. I also added way more vegetables than the suggested amount, because I figure extra veggies are always good for the family.

This recipe was simple, concise, and delicious! Very easy to prepare, just loved the flavors! The only difference was I added some egg noodles and salt & pepper. Terrific turkey soup! Thank You for sharing.

Yum! Used White Wine Vinegar and Rosemary instead of white wine and thyme.

The recipe was great with a couple of changes. We used 8 c. Of chicken broth for flavor. More vegetables, including potatoes, a little kitchen bouquet for deeper flavor, and rosemary instead of thyme. My family loved it.
