Turkey Lentil Soup

Turkey And Lentil Soup 008Another yummy soup with just leftover turkey bones.  I love soups and they are so healthy for you.  This soup was cooked for 5 hours but 2 hours would do.  The longer you cook bones, the more of the healthy things you extract from them.  I do make a lot of soup especially during the winter months.  I am usually up early in the morning, so by 3 or 4 a.m. I have started to make my soup.  By noon I have a nutritious lunch.  Served with a salad it is fabulous.  If my grandchildren are here after school they have a nice bowl of soup to warm them up.  Or if you have lunch or supper guests, they always appreciate a nice bowl of soup. You just can’t lose when you make soup.  I don’t understand why people don’t make more homemade soup instead of opening up a can of something. It is not only healthier, but cheaper to make.  You can use up leftovers and things in your fridge that you would normally throw out.  You can become so creative when making this dish.  Almost anything goes.  Give it a try and you most definitely will become addicted.

Turkey And Lentil Soup 002Chop 2 carrots, 1 onion, 3 ribs of celery, 1/4 cup of parsley and 2 cloves of garlic.

Turkey And Lentil Soup 005Don’t forget the 2 potatoes.

Turkey And Lentil Soup 003Place the turkey bone into a stockpot, bring to a boil and gather the scum.  Then add all the veggies, plus 2 bay leaves,1 cup of lentils and salt and pepper.  Bring to a boil and then reduce the heat and let it simmer partially covered for 2-5 hours.

Turkey And Lentil Soup 007When it is cooked, take a potato masher and crush some of the veggies. You will find that the lentils will disappear and you will end up with a rich and creamy soup.

Turkey And Lentil Soup 008There you have it.  Turkey and lentil soup.
