Turkey Soup

User Rating 5 Star Rating (1 Review)


This soup is an ideal way to use some of that leftover holiday turkey. Use rice or pasta here, and add more veggies if you like. Leeks, if you have them, are particularly good with this soup. This is just a basic recipe, which can easily be adapted.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 25 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes


  • 6 cups fat free, low sodium chicken broth (or defatted turkey stock from the carcass)
  • 1/2 cup pasta noodles or rice
  • 1 large carrot, diced
  • 1 celery stalk, sliced
  • 1 cup cooked white-meat turkey
  • ground black pepper


Bring broth to a boil in a large saucepan, then reduce to a simmer. Add pasta or rice, followed by carrots and celery. Simmer for 20 minutes or until rice is cooked and vegetables are tender. Add cooked turkey and simmer for a further 5 minutes. Season with pepper. Ladle into 6 bowls and serve.

Made this easy soup with double the amount of turkey and rice. Also added a can of corn. Served with tortilla chips, yummy!
