  • Summary

    It’s Turkey/Chicken Soup time! Use up that leftover turkey bones. This chicken/turkey soup recipe is so delicious and fantastic. You can make the broth from scratch (which is what I’ve done here) or use a pre-made broth (if you already tossed the bones). I also gather up all my leftover vegetable parts that I usually compost to add to the broth while it’s boiling like onion & garlic & ginger peels/skins, vegetable ends from the carrots, celery, zucchini, broccoli, etc.

    Ingredients

    • BROTH:
    • Chicken/turkey bones with minimal skin and meat (try to remove as much skin from the bones so there’s less fat in the broth; save at least 10 oz of the chicken/turkey meat for the soup)
    • All leftover vegetable pieces (See above for ideas. Recommended leftover pieces: garlic peel, onion peel, ginger skins, carrots ends, celery ends)
    • 3 whole dried red chilies
    • ½ bunch fresh Italian flat-leaf parsley OR cilantro (save the other half for the actual soup)
    • 4 fresh thyme sticks
    • 2 fresh or dried bay leaves
    • Salt & Pepper to taste
    • 10 cups water
    • SOUP:
    • 2 garlic cloves, minced
    • 1 onion, diced
    • 1 potato, cut into cubes
    • 3 carrots, sliced
    • 4 celery sticks, sliced
    • 2 Tbsp grated fresh ginger
    • ½ bunch fresh Italian flat-leaf parsley OR cilantro, chopped
    • 2 dried red chilies, minced
    • 10 oz shredded cooked chicken/turkey (removed earlier from the chicken/turkey bones prior to boiling the chicken bones to make the broth)
