Fall Fixins’-Turkey Apple Soup

Share

My favorite time of the year is fall. Leaves are changing, wood stoves are burning, and the fallen leaves crackle under your feet. This is the time of the year when you visit an apple orchard, ride in a hay wagon, and gaze upon the fields of pumpkins.

It is also a time for baking, preparing for the winter and holidays. Comfort food is often served. One of my favorite things to eat during the fall and winter is homemade soup. It is easy to make, nutritious, and is suitable for almost any budget. Making homemade soup is also a great way to use up leftover produce before it ends in the trash can.

Pasta shapes or rice can add some texture and filler for the soup. You can make it with or without meat. I hope that you make this Turkey Apple Soup during the fall months. It’s also a great way to use up your leftover turkey from Thanksgiving. Seasonings can be substituted or added without any conflict.

Turkey Apple Soup

Ingredients:

2 cups apple juice
1 can chicken stock
½ cup peeled apples, diced
1 can peas, drained well and  rinsed
1 can sliced carrots, drained and rinsed
1 can corn, drained and rinsed
½ Spanish onion, diced
1/ 2 jar of turkey gravy or you could use up some of your leftover gravy
2 tsp ginger
salt and pepper to taste
2 cups cooked dark turkey, minced
1 package Rotteli pasta or spirals
Fresh sprig of thyme
Non-stick spray

Bread bowls- Make sure that you have enough bread bowls according to the amount of people who will be eating the soup.

Directions-

Spray your crock pot with non-stick spray.
Add in the apple juice and chicken stock.
Turn the crock pot on to medium and add all the other ingredients-EXCEPT THE PASTA.
Stir gently to mix together.
Slow cook on medium heat for 5 hours. Then add in the pasta.
Mix well to combine.
Slow cook for one more hour.
Turn off crock pot.

Bread Bowls

Take each bread bowl and cut out a circle at the top. Scoop out the excess bread and place in a bowl.
The bread can be used for stuffing, bread pudding, or bread crumbs.
Cut approximately 1/4 around. You are going to use the bread as a bowl in which you will place a single serving of soup.

Now that the Turkey Apple Soup is done and the bread bowl has been cut. Spoon a single serving of the soup into the bread bowl. Garnish each single serving with a sprig of thyme before serving, if you wish.

What is your favorite way to use up leftover turkey?

    What an interesting way to make up turkey soup, I am betting it is a hit in the household. I will try to make it and see if my kiddos will eat it or not! I know we will as adults here.
