There are so many interesting ways to use up leftover turkey but sometimes the traditional favourites are best. Homemade turkey soup is probably the most popular. Adding some noodles to slurp up just makes Turkey Noodle Soup that much more fun to eat . And what could be more comforting on a chilly day?
You can make a thick hearty soup without using thickeners like flour or cornstarch. Potatoes do the job easily. So it’s actually gluten free. And adding cheese and sour cream not only adds to the thickness but also ramps up the deliciousness factor.
I’m not Italian and I’m not getting married, but that doesn’t mean I can’t make Italian Wedding Soup. In fact, this delicious soup doesn’t even have anything to do with weddings, Italian or otherwise.
The growing season is coming to a close and the days are getting colder. We still have local potatoes and leeks so I decided to make some Potato Leek Soup with Bacon. Because everything is better with bacon! But there’s something else that makes soups and stews better and I’m adding that too.
My sister and I used to take the train to Toronto when we were teenagers and we’d shop at the Eaton Centre. Then, when our money ran out we would head up to Mr. Greenjeans and have a bowl of our favourite menu item, Mushroom Cheddar Chowder. It’s been a long time since I’ve been there but I’ve never forgotten this delicious soup! I wonder if that restaurant is still there…..
