  1. Place turkey carcass in a large soup pot and pour vegetable broth and water over the turkey frame. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, and simmer until meat falls from the bones, 1 to 2 hours. Remove carcass, pick the meat from the bones, and discard bones. Chop turkey meat and return to broth.
