In a recipe for Spicy Turkey Thighs, I mentioned that the Old Bay Seasoning adds a kick of flavor. Again, we turn to Old Bay to season our dish – this time it’s turkey soup. With its world-famous blend of 18 herbs and spices, it’s a great way to easily add depth of flavor.
2 quarts vegetable stock
1 turkey carcass
1 (10-ounce) box frozen mixed vegetables (or your leftover veggies)
1/2 cup rice
2 cups cooked turkey, cubed
1 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning
2 teaspoons dried thyme
Salt and pepper, to taste
- Combine the vegetable stock and the turkey carcass in a large soup pot over low heat and bring to a simmer.
- Cover and simmer for 1 hour.
- Add the remaining ingredients to the stock.
- Cover and simmer for an additional 20 minutes.
- Remove the bones before serving.
