Harvest Turkey Soup with Jamaican Spice




My favorite part about thanksgiving other then chillin with the fam is left over turkey. I look forward to it all year and even buy an extra big turkey to cook and freeze for turkey soup, posole and other savory goodies.


I had butternut squash and asparagus in my crisper and decided that they would be perfect in a turkey soup. Crisp corn, garlic, mushrooms and a pinch of Jamaican allspice made this a wonderful  sweet  and  savory  soup the whole family loved.



Ditch the canned soup and try this the next time your body craves some comfort food.








Harvest Turkey Soup
2 cups cooked, cubed turkey
6 cups home made or good quality chicken broth
2 cups cubed butternut squash
1 cup sweet corn
1 cup chopped asparagus
1-8 oz can mushrooms, drained
1 small yellow onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced                                                                                          
1 teaspoon olive oil                                                                                                                               1 teaspoon Bragg's Season All                                                                                                       1 teaspoon Jamaican allspice
salt and pepper to taste

In a heavy based soup pot, heat oil over med-high heat. Add onion, cook till golden brown. Add garlic, cook 1 more minute. Add broth and squash, cook for 10 minutes. Add remaining ingredients, lower heat, cover and cook till heated through, about 7 minutes.

  6. My least favorite thing about Thanksgiving is NOT having leftover turkey! (it's the one holiday we always travel for, I never get to host.) Someday hopefully that will change and I'll be able to turn my leftovers into magnificent recipes like this!

  7. I don't have any leftover turkey, but I'd bet this would be just as good with chicken!
