About this recipe: This hearty and tasty turkey soup is made with a leftover roast turkey carcass. Freeze to enjoy this all winter long!
This was a good recipe. I like the idea of making the stock then doing the second phase of the soup separately. Previously, I'd thrown everything in all together - not so easy to sort the carcass from the veg then. I changed the recipe a little. Added some chorizo for spice (a few slices is enough), used a bit more celery and added some peppers. Overall it came out really well. I have to say, the rosemary and thyme - particularly the rosemary make a huge difference. I'd forgotten to add them at the beginning so I re-heated the soup to season it and added them then - definitely worth adding these. Thanks, J. - 27 Dec 2011
Pretty much followed the recipe just substituted stuff i didnt have or left it out eg i had no barley so googled replacement and used cous cous was delicious. - 30 Dec 2016
I have always promised myself I'd use the leftover turkey and this year I did. I did not boil the carcass, I just used the leftover turkey and served it up to 5 hungry people and all asked for seconds. It's such a comforting soup. very easy to prepare, just needs cooking for quite a while, make sure your barley is soft!I will definitely use it again! - 04 Jan 2013
