Easy Turkey Soup

I had purchased Lou’s Barbecue Co. Quick -n-Easy Tender, Slow Roasted Turkey Roast in gravy. The package is 400g and serves 2. When I opened the package I realized it was dark meat. I’m one of those people that “prefers” white meat. So I decided to make turkey soup.

I cooked the turkey in the pouch as suggested in boiling water for 8 minutes.

Then opened the package and put the turkey and the gravy in my crock pot.  I added a 900ml box of beef broth bouillon and heated up until warm.

I then added 3 frozen spinach nuggets and huge handful of shredded carrots which I chopped up in my food processor.

I added a little salt due to the addition of the spinach and carrots.

I cooked for a few hours and used a fork to break up the turkey meat. You don’t have to break up the turkey if you want big chunks.

I also added a little parsley.

An hour or so before serving add 1/4 cup basmati rice that has been strained with cold water to remove the starch. Add the rice to the soup.  Cook soup for at least the time suggested on rice package. Longer if you want it really soft.

The soup ends up really smooth. You would hardly know there was rice in it.

Serve with nicely toasted French or Italian bread.

Enjoy!

Ingredients:
1 400g box of Lou’s Ready cooked Turkey
1 900ml box beef broth (chicken or veg)
Great Value frozen spinach nuggets
Grimmway Farms shredded carrots (Garden Basket)
Salt, pepper, parsley, etc. to taste
1/4 cup rinsed basmati rice

Feel free to make this soup to your taste changing as you wish.

I had also thought of adding pasta but would cook pasta separately and add to soup shortly before serving as pasta soaks u all the liquid.

Enjoy!
