Leftover turkey inspiration: Turkey escarole soup
When it comes to turkey, many agree that there is such a thing as too much of a good thing.
After the fifth turkey sandwich, many are longing for a shakeup. We scoured a few recipes and found several on foodnetwork.com that put a touch of gourmet in that bird.
We thought the greens in Turkey Escarole Soup With Farfalline brought a bit of class to a classic.
And it’s as simple as this:
- 2 thinly slicked leeks (white and green parts only)
- 3 stalks chopped celery
- 2 chopped parsnips
- 4 quarts turkey broth
- 1 head chopped escarole
- 2 strips of lemon zest
- 3 cups chopped turkey
- Small pasta
- Simmer two thinly sliced leeks (white and green parts only), three stalks chopped celery, three chopped carrots and two chopped parsnips in 2 tablespoons olive oil. Cook over medium heat for 10 minutes.
- Add 4 quarts of turkey broth (you know you saved it for a reason) and simmer for 20 minutes.
- Add one head chopped escarole and two wide strips of lemon zest and simmer for 10 more minutes.
- Add three cups chopped cooked turkey, skin removed, along with the pasta (any small pasta will work) and cook until the pasta is done, about 4 minutes, over medium heat. Remove from heat, and remove zest. Add juice of a half a lemon, and a quarter cup dill, parsley, or a combination of both.
