Clean Out The Freezer Turkey Soup

Along with making the stir fry yesterday I also made turkey broth. Since the plan was to make turkey soup today I figured I might as well get rid of a couple of bits of things in the freezer. We always end up with things in the freezer that aren’t enough to have with a meal. I hate the idea of putting them in the trash so they end up just sitting in the freezer. Could try blaming the size of the can or bag but the fault is mine, it’s because of how I cook. When I make something I use only what I think is enough and even if that means a half cup remains I just put it back in the freezer. Thankfully I make soup often because it is a great place to use the small bits up. Cleaned out some with a recipe I made about a month ago but still had a couple of things left. There was a bag with french style green beans and a small freezer bag of diced tomatoes. So rather than the normal turkey soup I make, which we both really like, I added them. That is the nice part of homemade soup you can use any vegetables and it turns out good. This addition actually made a great soup especially with a good piece of Multi grain garlic baguette.

4 litres turkey broth

1 onion chopped

1 large rib celery chopped

1 carrot chopped

1 cup french style green beans

1 cup diced tomatoes

1 cup chicken broth ( little left in the box in the fridge )

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon pepper

1/6 of a bag of broad egg noodles

Throw everything in a pot except the egg noodles and bring to a boil, reduce heat to a very gentle boil and cook for 45 minutes. Serve at the temperature you like. Cook the egg noodles in a separate pot according to package directions. Put the hot egg noodles in the bottom of the soup bowl and ladle the soup over them. You can cook the noodles or any pasta in the soup but we never do. Because I make lots of soup the pasta goes to soft in the leftovers.
