How to Make Homemade Turkey Noodle Soup

This comes together quickly—about 15 to 20 minutes—once the broth is finished.

  • Add enough butter to soften the vegetables, then cook them in the broth until they are tender.
  • If you intend to eat it all without any leftovers, cook the noodles separately; otherwise, cook them in the broth.
  • Just before serving, add the chopped or shredded leftover turkey meat and parsley.

The Best Leftover Turkey Noodle Soup

Now that Thanksgiving is over, I’m sure you have a ton of leftover turkey! Like many of you, I roasted a turkey—a big one, even though there was just the two of us—and I adore soup season! I have the ideal solution, er, I mean recipe, for what to do with the leftover turkey meat now that I have an abundance of it. I made a totally homemade version of the classic leftover turkey noodle soup!

  • Perfect Use For Leftover Holiday Turkey
  • Easy To Make
  • Comforting Soup
  • Simple Ingredient List
  • Tasty And Delicious

This recipe is a must-have, especially when the weather is chilly. What I love about this soup, is that it’s simple. You can add as much or as little turkey, and the meat can be either dark or white. Simple, tasty, and filling, it’s the perfect way to make leftovers shine.

How To Make Turkey Noodle Soup With The Carcass

  • Vegetables: We want to build the foundation of our soup with carrots, celery, and onions. Although the onion is chopped in the image above, you are not required to chop it. Just add it whole (peeled) to the soup.
  • Turkey: Since we’re not wasting any food today, we’re going to make soup straight from the carcass, which will give our soup an incredible flavor and potent anti-flu properties.
  • Seasoning: Use only a small amount of salt and pepper in the early stages of the broth.
  • Water: A large portion of this will reduce and simmer, giving us delicious broth. For added flavor, you can use broth without any added salt in place of water, but you should really not waste your broth because the turkey carcass will add a lot of flavor.
  • Turkey: Any remaining white or dark meat from your turkey
  • Noodles: Use your preferred brand of egg noodles, but remember that they cook much faster than traditional pasta. You may also decide to use the kind of noodles that you prefer.
  • Bouillon: For these kinds of soups, I really like to add a cube of chicken bouillon or vegetable bouillon. Vegeta has no MSG and adds a ton of wonderful flavor.
  • Parsley – Fresh parsley all chopped up.

How to Make Homemade Broth

I love homemade turkey broth for soup!

SIMMER: Preparing homemade broth is simple. Simply combine the ingredients (as directed in the recipe below) with water in a large soup pot, then simmer for approximately four hours. It can also be cooked in a slow cooker. If you have any extra bones lying around that you haven’t used (such as the back or neck if the turkey was spatchcocked),

STRAIN: Remove the bones and vegetables from the broth by straining it through cheesecloth to capture any small particles. They’ll be too mushy for soup.

SKIM: Use a spoon to remove the fat from the top of the broth after letting it settle so that it separates (or use a gravy separator) After tasting the broth, return it to the pot and simmer it uncovered for a little while to reduce its flavor. I usually reduce it to about 8 cups.
