Got Leftover Turkey? Make This

By Sunday night, I (and probably most of us) had finished up several days of eating and family and now find ourselves with a fridge full of turkey. I find that holiday food gets boring after  a while, so I like to re-purpose it whenever I can. So when I found myself with a pound of smoked turkey, I threw together this soup.




  • 1-2 tsp olive oilphoto 1-2
  • 4 carrots, chopped
  • 5 celery stalks, chopped
  • 1 sweet onion, chopped 
  • 1 clove garlic, diced
  • 3 cups turkey, shredded
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/4 tsp sage
  • 8 cups chicken broth




Heat oil in a large pot. Add carrots, celery, onion, and garlic and cook about 4 minutes. Add the spices and mix well, then add the turkey and mix again. Add the broth and bring to a boil, then reduce to low heat and cook for 10 minutes.
