Turkey Soup with Leftover Thanksgiving Turkey

This Turkey Noodle Soup is the BEST way to use up leftover turkey from Thanksgiving. This soup is so good that I made a turkey in the air fryer just so that I could make this soup! SOOOOO good! Make sure to save this recipe so you can make it next week. I promise you are going to love it. Turkey, tomatoes, spinach, and noodles simmered in turkey broth. So simple yet so delicious. Whip up a batch of cornbread, and you have comfort food at its best.

How to Make Turkey Soup from Scratch

This Turkey Noodle Soup is very easy to make. Start with sautéing some onion, carrots, and celery in a Dutch oven. Add some tomato paste, basil, and Italian seasoning to the pot and cook for a minute. Next, add some turkey broth, diced Italian tomatoes, chopped turkey, and thawed frozen spinach. Bring the soup to a boil and reduce the heat to simmer for about 20 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste. About 15 minutes before serving, add some uncooked egg noodles. As soon as the noodles are done, the soup is ready to serve.

Tips for Making Turkey Soup

  • I used purchased Turkey Stock for this soup. I bought it at Walmart. If you can’t find turkey broth, you can substitute chicken broth. You can also make your own turkey broth with your leftover turkey carcass. Here is my recipe for Slow Cooker Chicken Broth: https://www.plainchicken.com/2015/07/slow-cooker-chicken-broth.html Just swap the chicken carcass for your turkey carcass.
  • Can Turkey Noodle Soup be Made in the Crockpot? YES! You can absolutely make this soup in the slow cooker. Sauté the onions, carrots, and celery. Transfer the vegetables to the slow cooker and add all of the remaining ingredients except the noodles. Cook on LOW for 6 to 8 hours. About 20 to 30 minutes before serving, stir in the egg noodles. 
  • Can Turkey Noodle Soup be Frozen? Yes! This soup makes a great freezer meal. We often freeze the leftovers. Let the soup cool and transfer to freezer bags. To reheat, thaw in the refrigerator and reheat on the stove or in the microwave. You may need to add a little broth when reheating. The noodles will soak up some of the liquid.
  • If you are making this soup exclusively as a freezer meal, you may want to leave out the noodles until you reheat the soup. This will prevent the noodles from soaking up too much liquid.
  • Can substitute leftover chicken for turkey.
