Turkey Noodle Soup

After I made the turkey broth I made turkey noodle soup.  Another affordable, great tasting meal using the leftovers from thanksgiving.  One thing I love about soups is that you can tweak it to however your family likes it.  If you want more veggies you can add them, less noodles, more meat, etc.  There is no wrong way to make soup.  You can probably tell we like our soups very chunky in our house.  It is almost just turkey and noodles ;)

Turkey Noodle Soup

1 TBS butter
1 TBS olive oil
1 TBS minced garlic
1 cup diced onion
1 cup sliced carrots
1 cup sliced celery
1-1/2 TBS flour
6 cups turkey broth
1 tsp dried marjoram
1/4 tsp pepper
1-1/2 cups diced turkey
2 cups cooked egg noodles
  1. In a large stock pot saute onion and garlic in butter and olive oil until soft.  Add carrots and celery and cook veggies for approximately 5 minutes.
  2. Add flour, mix and cook for 1 minute.
  3. Add broth, marjoram, and pepper.  Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 1 hour. 
  4. Add turkey meat (you can also add additional seasonings to suit your tastes at this point, but I opt not to and let the individual control their salt and pepper content) and heat thoroughly.  Add cooked egg noodles right before serving. 
Garnish with fresh parsley and serve with crackers or crusty bread.  Enjoy!
