Making broth is the ultimate way to eke every last bit of flavor from your holiday bird. And once you have broth on hand, making turkey soup becomes a snap: Just add diced leftover roast turkey meat and embellish the soup however you want. Or try one of the ideas at below.
Golden Turkey Broth can be the basis for a variety of soups, like these international inspirations:
- Southwestern: Sauté some chopped onion, adding ground cumin and chile powder during the last few seconds of cooking. Add broth and diced tomatoes and simmer for a few minutes. Add turkey, corn, and black beans. Season with a squeeze of lime and top each serving with diced avocado.
- Chinese: Sauté chopped bok choy and sliced shiitake mushrooms. Add broth, turkey, bamboo shoots, and fresh Chinese egg noodles (cooked separately). Season with a dab of chile paste and top each serving with mung bean sprouts.
- Italian: Sauté chopped kale and garlic until the kale is tender. Add broth, turkey, and white beans. Season with a squeeze of lemon and nestle a poached egg in each bowl.
