This time of year I always have so much turkey left over. Well, if you are like me, you may be tired of turkey sandwiches by this point. Here is a quick and super delicious way to enjoy that last bit of turkey lurking in the freezer. This recipe uses my favorite WST spice, The Spice of Life. Not a fan of soup? Seriously, y'all. I add this to everything. I made sweet potato hash the other morning and it was a lovely addition. Dry rub for chicken wings? Need to make pasta sauce a bit snazzier? Roasting some nuts but want a little spice? WST Spice of Life is my go to spice. I have yet to find something I DON'T like it in. Enjoy experimenting!
- 4-8 cups of broth (liquid or bullion cubes will work)
- 4-8 cups water
- 1-2 tablespoons of WST Spice of Life
- 2-3 carrots, sliced
- 2-3 celery stalks, sliced
- 1 onion diced
- 2-3 tablespoons of butter
- 2-3 cups cooked rice
- 4 cups cooked turkey, chopped
- Salt and pepper to taste
To make the soup:
In a large pot, melt butter and cook onions until translucent. Add carrots and celery. Cook for another 2-3 mins. Add broth, water, turkey and rice. Feel free to add more or less water to taste. Bring to a simmer and add WST Spice of Life. Simmer for another 10-20 mins. Add salt and pepper ( or more WST Spice of Life) to taste.
You can always use chicken instead of turkey.
Vegetarian? Use veggie broth and roasted veggies instead of meat. Maybe even add some dice tomatoes!
Not a fan of rice? Use quinoa!
There is no magic ratio of broth to water. Honestly, I used left over broth that was lingering in my fridge and added water to taste.
