Hearty Turkey Soup

I had a lot of turkey left over from Thanksgiving and after a few days of eating leftovers decided to turn the remainder into some hearty stick-to-your-ribs soup.

yield: 6 hearty helpings

for broth
turkey innards (the parts that come in that little bag + the neck)
2 stalks celery, quartered
1 onion, quartered
1 tsp sea salt
½ tsp black pepper
12C water

for soup
2 large carrots, diced
4 stalks celery, diced
2 small onions, diced
2C (or more) turkey meat, chopped
1C grains (I used an Pedon Italian Style 5 Grains)

  1. for broth: Add all ingredients into a large pot.
  2. Bring to a boil over medium heat.
  3. Cover pot and let simmer for at least 1 hour.
  4. Remove innards, celery, and onion from the broth liquid. Discard.
  5. for soup: Add carrots, celery, onions, and turkey meat to the broth in the pot.
  6. Simmer over medium heat for 30 minutes.
  7. Add grains and cook for and additional 10 minutes.
  8. Enjoy!
