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.
