Thanksgiving is over and one of the best things about Thanksgiving is the leftover turkey! I look forward to making this soup every year. You can also make it with leftover chicken as well. The first step is to make your own broth using the turkey carcass. I usually just cover the carcass with water, add a chopped up onion and a chopped up celery stick and simmer until the carcass is falling apart. Drain the broth, allow to cool. Refrigerate overnight and skim off the fat once cooled.

Chill your broth to remove the fat.

Now you are ready to make your soup. This recipe can easily be doubled. Freeze any leftover broth that your don’t use in the recipe.
