I'm not really fond of soup, so I was a little hesitant to try this recipe. But after some adjustments over the years, I've come to love this one-of-a-kind turkey soup.

"My family hates leftovers. So, using up the leftover holiday turkey is a challenge. This soup was wonderful. It was relatively quick and had a great flavor. Everyone ate seconds. I increased the carrots to 4 but otherwise followed the recipie. I will definitely make this again."
