Don’t say I hadn’t warned you!
Yes, it’s another turkey recipe. But this IS the last one now, I promise.
Besides, I’m sure you will simply ADORE this one.
Seriously, who doesn’t like a good, piping hot bowl of super comforting Cream of Chicken Soup?
Well, if chicken is so great in soups, turkey would be just as good, now, wouldn’t it?
This has to be my favorite way EVER to use up turkey leftovers. I’d never even thought of making my own cream of turkey soup at home. I thought for sure that the only way to enjoy this was out of a can.
Boy was I wrong. The canned stuff has NOTHING on this home made version, except for maybe a hell of a lot more fat, and unwanted additives.
Now, I’m not going to lie to you. This soup has a “texture”. Unlike the canned stuff, it’s not all smooth and creamy. It’s a soup that you sort of have to chew on. Kind of like that orange juice that has a lot of pulp, you know…
The thing is, this soup is LOADED with meat, and I do mean LOADED. Turkey meat is actually what makes it so SUPER THICK and meat being fibrous by nature, there is no way you can make this one super silky.
But talk about satisfying. This will keep you full and satisfied for a very long time.
Not surprising when you consider how much protein you get out of a single bowl of soup! The protein contents is simply through the roof!
Now that I’ve had this soup, I don’t think I could ever settle for anything else.
And I can’t think of anything more comforting after a long walk out in the freezing harshness of winter.
By all means, give that one a try.
I bet you will love it and, like me, will consider roasting another turkey just so you can have more leftovers!
Make your soup super pretty: garnish it with a few more chunks of turkey meat
(‘cuz chances are, you STILL have more left…)
Look at all that beautiful meat… you won’t get that out of a can!
See what I mean? Texture!
