Enjoy this quick and easy comforting Turkey Noodle Soup full of tender egg noodles, fresh veggies, and tender shredded turkey in just 35 minutes. While this recipe does not call for it, this easy favorite could also be made in a crock pot. In the mood for something a little more hearty? You could always try a simple chili recipe.  

How to Make It

Heat a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add carrot, onion, and garlic; sauté 5 minutes or until onion is lightly browned. Add celery, salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper; sauté 3 minutes. Add broth and next 3 ingredients (through bay leaf); bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 5 minutes. Add shredded turkey; cook 3 minutes. Discard bay leaf. Sprinkle with coarsely ground black pepper, if desired.

Chef's Notes

This light and simple soup is the perfect way to use any leftover holiday turkey or just to have something warm on a chilly day.

Good Use of Leftover Turkey

November 27, 2016
This is easy and tasty. You can throw in other veggies if you want making it a 'meal in a bowl.' It's a good, solid recipe for leftover turkey but I wouldn't rave about it. Nothing exceptional.

Quick, easy and exceptionally delicious! Used homemade turkey broth and turkey meat (from bones used to make broth) that I had frozen last Thanksgiving, substituted 1 Tbsp olive oil for cooking spray, and used Annelisa's recipe for homemade egg noodles. I think the soy sauce and the homemade noodles were what made it such an instant hit at our house!

Really easy, but oh, so good. I simmered the soup a half hour before adding noodles, then added the noodles just 12 minutes (per package) before serving. I also added parsley.

This was surprisingly delicious. The soy sauce as a lovely depth. My kids loved it. Went very well with a salad and biscuits. Will be on our rotation

Great recipe for a quick, simple dinner. I followed the recipe and it turned out great. You need to use low-sodium chicken broth. I would recommend this to novice cooks because it is very easy to prepare and healthy. I am going to add this to my quarterly recipe rotation.

This is a delicious and easy recipe and a great way to use leftover Thanksgiving turkey. The soy sauce definitely gives this soup flavor. I want to note that you need 4 oz. of uncooked egg noodles to equal 2 c., not 3 oz. as the recipe suggests.
