This is a recipe for a stress-free homemade turkey noodle soup. It is hearty, filling and delicious. Everything you ever want your soup to be. The recipe is simplified by using store bought chicken broth and leftover turkey.
So it only takes a short breezy time to put it all together. It is a definite win when you can have a cozy nutritious soup in your bowl without an extensive effort of making your own broth.
It is a very easy weeknight-friendly and kids love it as well! It is a great soup to make when you feel a little bit under the weather and want something soothing and comforting.
This soup is a great way to use all that leftover Thanksgiving or Christmas turkey. And I like the touch of creamy texture that the condensed cream of chicken soup adds to this dish.
Carrots, celery, onions and garlic are all basic vegetables that serve as an aromatic foundation of the soup. Fragrant herbs like parsley and bay leaf add a hint of floral freshness. I also love egg noodles in this recipe. They are richer in both taste and texture then your regular noodles. With eggy, buttery flavor they are a perfect compliment to savory turkey meat.
You can absolutely freeze the soup for a future quick and easy meal. Just let it cool down at the room temperature and pack into individual air tight containers and freeze for up to 3 months. You can also substitute the ingredients to fit your personal taste or the content of your fridge. Swap turkey for chicken or noodles for small pasta like bowties. This soup is a great recipe that will please even the pickiest eaters and most importantly very quick and easy to make!
