Hearty Turkey Vegetable Soup
I found this Hearty Turkey Vegetable Soup recipe on the Internet, but it was too high in fat. After experimenting, I created a more nutritious version, I often double this chili-like soup to freeze or to share with friends.

Turkey Rice Soup
This tasty Turkey Rice Soup has a surprisingly short simmering time. Leftover turkey has never tasted so good! If you don't have frozen mixed vegetables on hand, stir in extra veggies from your Thanksgiving meal until heated through.
