Curried Turkey Soup

This simple yet elegant dish is great for family meals and entertaining. The soup improves with age, so make it ahead and reheat before serving. For a creamier soup, puree with a handheld immersion blender, then add turkey and cream. For a lighter version, substitute half-and-half or milk for cream. Prep: 10 minutes; Cook: 20 minutes.
