Turkey Pot Pie Soup






The actual title to the recipe is Turkey Pot Pie Soup with Buttermilk Biscuit “Croutons”. I'm not biscuit fan so I omitted the "croutons". 

Carol told me about the recipe. She found it on pinterest and I hurried over to her board to pin it.


Leta was very sick and I brought her a bowl and she seemed to enjoy it. The first pot of soup didn't make it to a photo shoot. I loved it and knew I would be making it again.

Great way to use up leftover turkey!

 PLEASE NOTE: I am only giving the ingredients and directions to make the soup. If you want to make the buttermilk biscuits please go to Cooking and Beer where I found the recipe.

Ingredients:

1/2 cup unsalted butter, divided
1 medium-sized yellow onion, diced
3 medium carrots, peeled and diced*
3 medium celery ribs, peeled and diced
2 cloves of garlic, finely minced
3 cups chicken or turkey broth (or stock)
2 medium-sized Yukon gold potatoes, diced (peeled if desired)**
1 bay leaf
salt and black pepper
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
2 cups shredded or diced Turkey breast
1 1/2 cups frozen peas
1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup whole milk
1 cup half and half ( used evaporated milk)
4 ounces sour cream


Directions:

In a large dutch oven over medium-high heat, melt 2 tablespoons of the butter. Add the onion, carrots and celery to the dutch oven and cook the veggies until are just tender, about 8-10 minutes.

 Add the garlic and cook for an additional minute. Add the broth, potatoes, bay leaf, salt and pepper to taste and the  Italian seasoning. Mix well. 

Bring the mixture to a boil and then lower the heat to a simmer. Cook the potatoes until they are fork tender, about 15 minutes. Add the turkey breast, frozen peas, and fresh parsley. Stir to combine and lower the heat to low.

In a separate medium size saucepan, melt the remaining 6 tablespoons of butter over medium heat. Whisk in the flour and cook until the flour mixture is golden. Continuing to whisk, pour in the whole milk, half and half and sour cream. 
Bring the mixture to a simmer, whisking constantly, until the mixture has thickened.

Pour the flour mixture into the soup and stir to combine. Keep warm on the stove

* to save time buy a bag of frozen peas and carrots. I added 3/4 of a  16  oz bag of frozen peas and carrots.

** the first batch of soup I used a large sweet potato.  Same directions. I peeled mine and cooked it in the soup until fork tender.

 I didn't have enough half and half and substituted   evaporated milk  substitute for cream or half and half products

  1. WOW, this looks amazing. I love the heart shaped bowl. I also like the idea of putting sweet potato in. I have lots of leftover turkey, since we had a 20 pound turkey and only 5 adults who really ate it. I gave lots of it away, but still have one pack of white meat to use up. I must try this one.

    I am so sorry to see that Leta is still so sick. I sure hope she improves fast. I finally feel less like a space creature today. At least my head is coming down to almost "normal".

    I am cooking up a batch of my easy peasy corn bean soup. It is made with all canned corn and beans, so not sure if you who are "fresh" people would like it. It takes no time to throw in the pot, and is really good.

    Ok, hope you all have a great day. Linda, thanks so much for this recipe.....going to have to try it soon.

  2. I made this soup last night and love love LOVED it! I made the "croutons" because Bob likes "stuff" on his soup-I was very happy with mine as is. Oh and I substituted fresh cooked green beans for the peas-Bob would have had a fit had he seen little green balls floating in the soup-silly man. It's DELICIOUS-and a perfect home for the homemade turkey stock I got from the turkey bones....you know me....use every bit of that turkey right down to the last gobble. :)

    I'm sure Leda was very happy to see you coming with a hot bowl of soup-there's nothing better when you're feeling not so hot. I bet that nice hot soup hit the spot for her.

    I have a dish almost like yours Linda-and I've never used it.....another flea market find.....your soup looks great in yours!

  13. Won't be having turkey till Xmas. You can be sure this marvellous recipe will be on the menu at some point! Ray will be thrilled to have the crockpot cooking the broth overnight! LOL I don't do that often but I always do with the turkey. You know I could go for a bowl full right now. We had a very light supper and the soup would be the finishing touch tonight.
