Cream of Turkey Soup

If you’re anything like me, then you cooked way too much for Thanksgiving. And no matter how many people you have over for dinner, there’s always turkey left over. You’ll be eating turkey sandwiches for quite a while, unless you come up with a different idea. Which is where I come in. Just a few slices of turkey and a few simple ingredients, and you’ll have a nice pot of warm soup!


What you’ll need:

  • a few slices of left over turkey
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 4 tbsp butter
  • 4 tbsp flour
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 tsp paprika (omit if you don’t like the pink tint)
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • salt to taste

In a large pot melt the butter. Add the onion and sauté for 3 minutes, then add garlic. Sauté for another minute.

Slowly add the chicken broth and stir. Simmer for 5 minutes. With an immersion blender, smooth out the soup. Add milk and turkey, simmer for 5 minutes. Add paprika and garlic powder, and simmer for another 5 minutes. Season with salt to taste.


Bon Appétit!

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
