To make turkey soup, combine cooked turkey with chopped vegetables, broth and spices. Let these ingredients simmer until the vegetables are soft and the flavors are well-blended.
To make turkey soup, melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a 4-quart saucepan over medium heat. Add 4 sliced medium carrots, 2 sliced celery ribs and 1 medium chopped onion. Cook these vegetables for 3 or 4 minutes, until they have softened slightly. To the pan, add 5 cups of turkey stock or broth, 1 cup of water, 1/2 teaspoon of dried marjoram and 1/2 teaspoon of black pepper.
Add 2 cups of chopped cooked turkey. Leftovers from a previously cooked turkey work fine for this soup. Bring the ingredients to a boil, then reduce the heat to low and continue to cook for approximately 12 to 15 minutes or until the vegetables are tender. Add 2 cups of uncooked dried wide egg noodles and cook for 5 to 7 more minutes, or until the noodles are tender. This recipe can be made with chicken or turkey, and chicken broth can be substituted for the turkey broth. Other vegetables, such as potatoes or leeks, can also be added. Some home cooks who reviewed this recipe suggested adding garlic for more flavor.
