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.
Love Froogs xxxx
