Turkey Noodle Soup
My dear daughter recently asked for some homemade chicken noodle soup. I decided that I could go one better than that and make Turkey Noodle Soup. That way I can have some too. Clever, huh? But not to worry. The dear will get her chicken noodle soup - eventually.
I pulled a turkey cutlet and a container of turkey stock out of the freezer. I also went through the vegetable crisper in the fridge and pulled out an onion, carrots, green beans, celery and a garlic clove. From the pantry I gathered kosher salt, black pepper and noodles. I then went out on the deck and harvested some thyme, sage and flat-leaf parsley.
I washed and chopped all the veggies before deciding that some corn from the freezer would also be good for the soup. I then minced the herbs and grated the garlic clove. I opted to only use one carrot for the soup.
First the onion and carrot sauteed in a bit of bacon fat (or for the Sandra Lee fans, bacon joos).
The remaining veggies went into the pot,
Before the herbs, garlic and diced turkey were added.
