Leftover Turkey Vegetable Noodle Soup

There’s something special about soup. And this soup is one I look forward to all year. It combines the comforting flavors of Thanksgiving in a bowl.

Perfect for Friday or even Saturday following Thanksgiving or Christmas. Whenever you find yourself with that oh-so-delicious leftover turkey.

What makes this soup special… is that it’s never the same from year to year. As the holiday menu changes from year to year, so does this soup.

It’s a perfect way to use those leftovers, veggies, and all, and make this ever-so-delicious soup… that’s never the same twice.

Make it with Homemade turkey stock — or simply use store-bought chicken or vegetable broth. But if you’ve saved your turkey carcass, don’t let it go to waste. Making your own stock is incredibly easy and rewarding.

  1. I’m going to make this soup today, but with left-over chicken. The recipe looks delicious! Is the stuffing added as a thickener? I have some Stove Top stuffing I could use. Thanks for all the great recipes!!

    1. I love this soup— I’m so glad you’re trying it. A bit different but the flavors are delicious, much of it from the seasoned stuffing. And yea, it does thicken the soup a little. Thank you in advance for trying it 😍

  2. Soup looks delicious I’m gong to make this I’m allergic to so many meats -gluten and soy,I have to have organic or grass fed meats.
