Tanya's Turkey (or Chicken) Soup

This soup is super easy to make and yummy to eat!
It's hearty and satisfying.
The first time I ever had it the turkey wasn't even in it...and it was still good!
So good, in fact, that I requested the recipe.
I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

18 cups stock ~ you can make your own or use bouillon cubes
4 tsp salt ~ omit if using bouillon cubes
(adjust to taste at the end of cooking time)
1 cup carrots, chopped
1 cup celery, chopped
1 cup onions, chopped
28 oz tin diced tomatoes
¼ cup pearl barley
¼ cup brown lentils
2 Tbsp rice (I use brown)
¼ cup parsley flakes (or use 1 bunch fresh, chopped)
3 cups chopped turkey (or chicken)
1 cup soup noodles ~ I use small shell pasta

Put all ingredients into large pot (except the soup noodles) and bring to a boil.
Reduce heat and simmer, covered, for two to three hours, stirring occasionally ~
Add soup noodles for the last 15 minutes of cooking time.


Many Blessings, Camille

This sounds delicious Camille! perfect for the snowy weather we are having :) Oh hurry up Spring!

In regards to the Pie Cherries (or Sour Cherries), they do grow well in this area (SW Colorado) but we mostly order them from:

They have wonderful berries too!

Have a blessed evening!

Oh yum!! It makes me want to snuggle up on the couch, with a big fluffy blanket, and take in the smells spreading through my home as the soup simmers on the stove~

Thank you for sharing.

The soup looks and sounds delicious.
Is it warming up where you are? We are finally seeing a little Spring. Hopefully it stays.

Susan ~ I hope you enjoy it! I have found it to be one of the easiest and best soup recipes ~ and it can be doubled and frozen! :)

Sharon ~ More snow?? Hopefully spring is coming soon. :) Thanks for the cherry info...your pies look amazing!!

Cinnamon ~ Soup is definitely comfort food...I hope you get spring soon too! :)

Christa ~ It's been teasing us (the weather)...spring weather one week and cold the next! My cherry blossom tree is ready to bloom, but we had a frost the other morning. Isn't it wonderful when spring finally arrives in earnest?? :)

Have a wonderful day my friends!
