Reviews forWilliamsburg Inn Turkey Soup
"I really like this soup recipe. I added some spices as I didn't have the carcass to make my broth. Instead I used bullion and poultry seasoning. To smoke it a bit I added some pureed chipolte pepper in adobo sauce (my new favourite flavour enhancer). I would have added a bit more veggies, rice and turkey to have it be a bit meatier. Overall it is a great recipe to make and tweak for your family's tastes!"
"When I make this again I will add some bullion or more seasoning.Other than that it was very good and filling. Round two and many tweaks. I saut?ed the vegs for 5 minutes then added 3 quarts of water with 4 Tablespoons of chicken base then boiled another 10-15 minutes. Made the roux as stated and when thick put it in with the veggies and broth Threw in a cup or so of leftover cooked rice and chopped up a couple leftover chicken breasts. It was good and I got to use up leftovers."
