Homemade Turkey Noodle Soup

Pin It
On Christmas morning I woke up at 5:30 a.m. to roast a turkey.
Who am I?

Ralphie from A Christmas Story was on TV, all of the Christmas lights were
lit, and I was massaging a turkey with butter :)
Good times!

The turkey turned out just right thank goodness.
I used a roasting bag and stuffed him with onion, celery, carrots and herbs.
We were hosting 25 family members for lunch and I would not have been happy
if I ruined the turkey!

Today I used the broth and leftover turkey to make Homemade Turkey Noodle Soup.
It was my first time making turkey soup and I'm so happy with the results.
Turkey Noodle Soup was a delicious lunch - so tasty and cozy on this beautiful
winter day!

Homemade Turkey Noodle Soup

32 oz. turkey broth (homemade or boxed)
2 C water
medium onion, chopped
3/4 C celery, chopped
3/4 C carrots, sliced
2 C turkey meat
half of a 12 oz. package of egg noodles
1 can cannellini beans (white kidney beans), drained and rinsed
2 T olive oil
salt and pepper
parsley for garnish if desired

In a large stockpot, saute onion, celery and carrots in olive oil.
Season the vegetables with salt and pepper.
Add turkey broth, water, turkey, cannellini beans and noodles.
Bring to a boil and then simmer until noodles are al dente.
Garnish with fresh parsley leaves if desired.

Note - I added water since my broth was so rich.  If using broth
from a box you may not need to add it.
