Using ingredients on hand, I stirred up this turkey and veggie-packed soup. If you have them, corn, beans and celery are great here, too. —Lisa Wiger, St. Michael, Minnesota

"Very tasty and quick to make. I used leftover chicken, since I didn't have any turkey, but it was good. I also added a touch of minced garlic with the onions and carrots. Everyone liked it, and we'll be making it again! Perfect on a cool fall evening!"

"This was tasty soup. I used chicken breast & regular pearl barley instead. I didn't want to buy turkey and I don't really like the quick barley. Will make again with some added vegetables."
