Turkey Vegetable Soup (Meyer Family Favorite!)

24 11 2011

We’re all about “WHAT’S NEW” at Adrians… BUT we share a copy of this recipe every year at Thanksgiving…This is my all time FAVORITE soup!  My mom, Ruth Meyer  has been making this since I was in high school…great way to use up those delicious turkey leftovers!  The spinach, curry, and whole cream give it a different twist! Of course, we double or triple this recipe, for great leftovers! 🙂

1/4 cup margarine
2 medium onions, chopped
2 Tbsp flour
1 tsp curry powder
1/2 tsp poultry seasoning
1 cup potatoes, chopped
1 cup carrots, sliced
1/2 cup celery, sliced
2 Tbsp fresh parsley, chopped
3 cups chicken broth (or turkey)
2 cups cooked turkey, cubed
10 oz pkg frozen chopped spinach
1 1/2 cups half & half
salt & pepper to taste

Melt margarine in large saucepan over medium heat. Add onions and sauté until translucent, about 10 minutes. Stir in flour and curry powder and cook 2-3 minutes. Add broth, potatoes, carrots, celery, parsley, and sage and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and cover and simmer 10 minutes. Add turkey, half & half, and spinach. Cover and continue simmering until heated through, about 7 minutes. Do not boil. Season with salt and pepper.
Makes 6-8 servings
