"Great soup for using up leftover turkey. This soup has a little cayenne added to give it a kick."

leftover turkey carcass, broken into pieces
chopped celery leaves, or to taste
baby carrots, quartered
2 (14.5 ounce) cans
stewed tomatoes with juice
green beans, cut into bite-size pieces
salt and ground black pepper to taste
1 (15.25 ounce) can
whole kernel corn, drained
Excellent! A little spicy.....but that's the way I like it. I added some fresh cilantro too. This is the best turkey soup I've ever had and my husband agrees.
The blend of spices was just too odd for me. I wound up straining as many of them out of the broth as I could, washing the veggies and adding 2 tablespoons of Italian seasoning blend, some tomato paste and Parmesan cheese.
We really enjoyed this! It is a recipe that is very adjustable to your taste. I started with 3 quarts of stock I had already prepared, the recipe didn't really call for a specific amount of liquid so I eyeballed the rest. I only used one can of stewed tomatoes and half the rice, which was perfect for our taste, it didn't absorb all of the liquid leaving it more like soup than stew. Didn't add the corn. We liked the hearty nature of this turkey soup and would make this again! Thank you!
I can't believe this recipe only has 11 reviews! It's delicious! Are you looking to make soup with turkey leftovers but hate all that bland stuff that's out there? Me too. Thankfully, this is a great recipe that does not disappoint. Zippy is a great word for it--enough spice that it's 'kicked up' without being hot. After adding two cans of stewed tomatoes, I ended up adding an additional can of diced while the soup was simmering. I think next time I'll just opt for diced tomatoes as the stewed chunks seem too big in the soup. Instead of rice, I used 1/2 cup of Orzo that I had on-hand. Other than that, I followed the recipe over the course of two days. I made the broth the evening we had the turkey, refrigerated it overnight, skimmed the fat that separated, and then added all additional ingredients the next day. I already printed this and have added it to my trusty recipe binder in my kitchen. Thanks for the great soup M Vidito
This soup was amazing! I substituted pearl barley for the rice and followed the recipe otherwise. It's very spicy but not too spicy. Great blend of flavors.
This is a really great soup. I made up the broth, strained it and put it in the refrigerator to separate the fat and make it easy to skim off. We like spicy so I added about 1/2 tsp of chili flakes as well. Very tasty and healthy too.
This was great I did not have ginger or the marjoram but it still had amazing flavor without, I used a can of green beans and added a jalapeno to the broth for extra spice. Yummy yummy yummy, first recipe I had for turkey soup that wasn't bland
I just finished making this soup. It's delicious!! My daughter and I both love it. Every time I roast a turkey I will most definitely make this soup. Thanx for sharing.
