Day 238: Turkey & Turnip Soup ♥

This Thanksgiving, I may be the happiest person who didn't cook a turkey.

That's because the turkey carcass came home with me -- and after four hours simmering happily away with carrots, celery and onion, it yielded 10 cups of creamy turkey stock and nearly 8 cups of meat.

Tonight's soup is the result of hours in the kitchen, yet took only five minutes to make. THAT is the glory of turkey.

For the record, this is A Veggie Venture's official entry in Lovely Leftovers Day over at SlashFood.

Still using up your leftover turkey? Think about a pot of Saturday Soup or these Veggie Quesadillas.

Hands-on time: 5 minutes
Time to table: 5 minutes

Mix all ingredients in a saucepan -- but only enough for one meal for there's no having leftover leftovers!
