Christmas leftovers

 Hello Dear Reader,

A turkey, though expensive, is so versatile. Here’s my version of minestrone soup with turkey as a chunky addition. You will need: One large carrot, one large onion, 2 sticks of celery, one leek, the outside leaves of a savoy cabbage, a good squirt of tomato puree,  2 chicken stock cubes in 1 litre of boiling water, a small amount of spaghetti cut into little pieces and a good handful of cooked, chopped turkey. Here’s the how to:

1. Chop and sweat off all the veggies in a little olive oil.
2. Dissolve the stock cubes in a litre of boiling water.

 3. Add the spaghetti and chopped turkey and cook for 30 minutes on a low heat.

 4. I serve the soup or chunky broth with a dollop of pesto. I don’t add it before as the garlic can lose its flavour.

 We’ll have a couple of bowls each tonight and some for lunch tomorrow. There’s still plenty of turkey left so you’ll just have to wait and see what I do with that.

Until tomorrow,

Love Froogs xxxx

  1. That looks scrummy. We had free range chicken because we're not keen on turkey. I made chicken, pearl barley and potato stew today with dumplings. I have enough chicken left to make a chicken and sweetcorn flan, plus a chicken and hanm pie for the freezer using leftover boiled ham. My 2 chickens will have served 6 on Xmas day, another meal cold with ham and chips on boxing day, chicken stew today plus a flan and pie for another day. Pretty good value I think. I love getting creative with leftovers.

  2. Hate turkey,so we had a rib of beef. Sounds extravagent, but fed 5 of us a lovely roast beef dinner on Christmas day, 4 single portions of beef curry in the freezer, 1 x 2 portion of roast beef dinner with gravy and a massive tub of roast beef with gravy for the next time the 10 of us are together. Put the bones in the slow cooker to make lovely gravy…. yum!
