Tuesday's Cupboard—Perky Turkey Soup

My best recipe for using leftover turkey


A delicious way to finish off leftover Thanksgiving turkey!

perky turkey soup

adapted from Weight Watchers Magazine, Nov/Dec 2012


ingredients
  • 1 T. olive oil
  • 1 chopped yellow or red onion
  • 1 chopped large bell pepper
  • 1 tsp. cumin
  • 1/2 tsp. harissa sauce
  • 8 c. chicken broth (I use Knorr's double-cube chicken broth & make my own)
  • chopped roasted turkey (as much as you want, 4-6 cups)
  • 2 cans garbanzo beans, drained
  • 1/4 c. rinsed & chopped fresh cilantro

Look for  these pretty mini-bell peppers at the grocery store.
They are not hot, and they add color to the soup pot. 

make it
  1. Heat oil in soup pot.  Add onion & bell pepper.  Cook 5 minutes.
  2. Add cumin & harissa sauce; combine with veggies & cook for 1 minute.
  3. Add chicken broth, turkey, garbanzos & chopped cilantro.
  4. Bring to a boil & serve.
