Meyer Family Turkey Vegetable Soup

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!  Hope your family enjoys this as much as our family does!  Enjoy! … Vicki (Meyer) Adrian
I sure hope she’s planning to make some when we’re home for Christmas! 🙂 (hint, hint!)


1/4 cup margarine
2 medium onions, chopped
2 Tbsp flour
1 tsp curry powder

In the recipe for Turkey Vegetable Soup there is no sage in list of ingredients. Just wanted you to know of typo error. Not sure of why the spinach either but guess I will have to try it to see how it adds flavor to the soup.

Hi Elaine…thanks for catching that…the recipe calls for EITHER poultry seasoning OR sage, and we always use poultry seasoning, so just missed that. Hope you had a great Thanksgiving! Always great to hear from you Elaine!
