Description

Great soup for using up leftover turkey. This soup has a little cayenne added to give it a kick.

Ingredients
  • 1 leftover turkey carcass, broken into pieces
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon chopped celery leaves, or to taste
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 28 baby carrots, quartered
  • 3 stalks celery, chopped
  • 2 (14.5 ounce) cans stewed tomatoes with juice
  • 1 cup long-grain rice
  • 10 green beans, cut into bite-size pieces
  • 2 cubes chicken bouillon
  • 1 tablespoon dried marjoram
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 2 sprigs fresh rosemary
  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger
  • ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 (15.25 ounce) can whole kernel corn, drained
Directions
  1. 1. Place turkey carcass pieces into a large soup pot and cover with cold water. Stir in onion, celery leaves, and bay leaves, bring to a boil, and reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer for 2 hours. Strain broth and pour back into soup pot. Pick turkey meat from the carcass and chop meat into bite-size pieces.
  2. 2. Heat butter in a skillet; cook and stir carrots and celery until tender, about 8 minutes. Stir carrots, celery, stewed tomatoes with juice, rice, green beans, chicken bouillon cubes, marjoram, thyme, rosemary, ginger, cayenne pepper, salt, and black pepper into broth. Mix in chopped turkey meat.
  3. 3. Bring soup back to a boil, reduce heat to low, and simmer until rice is tender, 30 to 35 minutes. Remove and discard rosemary sprigs; stir corn into soup. Adjust salt, cayenne pepper, and black pepper to taste. Lay a paper towel on top of soup to absorb excess oil, if desired.
