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.

How to Make It

Step 1

Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion, celery, and garlic, and cook 3 minutes or until tender. Add curry powder and turmeric, and cook 1 minute. Add flour, and cook 2 minutes. Add broth, salt, and pepper, and simmer 10 minutes or until mixture begins to thicken. Add turkey and cream, and simmer 3 minutes or until heated through. Stir in lemon juice. Garnish, if desired.

Step 2

*Be sure to look for curry powder that's imported or labeled "premium" for the best blend of spices.

This was a very quick and easy soup to make and was full of delicious curry flavor. I used leftover turkey from Christmas, but will make it again using chicken so I can have it throughout the year.
