Cream of Turkey Soup Plus

cream of

This is the swan song of a nine-pound turkey breast that has served us well over the last few days. The picture can’t begin to convey how really delicious everything shown actually was – so flavorful. The soup itself was so nice, and the addition of some lime juice made it really sparkle. The herb and garlic toast with Parmesan had just the right “tooth” to complement the soup. I had jazzed up the hummus with some Santa Cruz Red Pepper Paste, and that combination turned out to be a real keeper. I’ll be doing that again for sure.

To make this soup, I had simmered the bones in the Crock-Pot for about ten hours, and the aroma of the broth was just permeating every corner of our house. The smell was so mouth watering. A generous amount of chopped onions, celery, carrots, plus some medium salsa and alphabet noodles, made this soup very tasty.

This breast provided so much for so many, and still there is some in the refrigerator waiting to delight us with some nice club panini sandwiches on the morrow. There are even two buns left for the occasion.

While I was doing the dishes later, three deer came to the water pond. There was barely enough light to capture them, but I will process and post the pictures tomorrow.

    Have youse guys tried Sriracha hot sauce? That bowl of soup is a prime candidate! This sauce if very popular and can be used on a thousand-and-one foods.

      I’ve read about it. Gary, aka Louisiana Boy, uses Tabasco sauce on a lot of things, but we’ve not tried this sauce yet. Haven’t really seen it except in print. I don’t much care for things that require yogurt to quiet down my membranes, so am not particularly adventurous in that regard. We’ll try it at your house! ;->

    In Greece they put the yellows of eggs together with a lot of lemon juice into chicken-soups. That’s really delicious like your soup was. Happy 2015 to you and all the best. regards Mitza

  5. Everything looks so very tasty and colorful and your description of the stock cooking…. mouthwatering! 🙂


    • judilyn says:

      The stock is such a nifty bonus! I used half of it in this soup, and am hoarding the other half for some other delicious treat not yet imagined! ;-> Happy holidays to you! ;->


      • Sounds like a good plant…

        For me it was mostly work during the holidays. My holidays break will start on Mon… 🙂
        Why did I ever want to be a chef? Big mistake! 😀

          The smiley face at the end belies your disclaimer! You are a chef because you love food and the joy it brings to others, yah? Even being a “chef” for only one other mega appreciative diner is rewarding!


  6. Yes, it’s a never ending love-hate relationship… 😀

    That’s the best thing about holiday cooking… using the leftovers. Your soup looks superb. I will use your lime juice trick… and also the hummus. I love hummus, but some times I’d like it to have more zing!
