Since it was cold today, I decided to make some turkey soup from leftover turkey and some broth I made from the bones. I didn't have noodles so I tried the Ramen noodles and it was very tasty.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

We loved being able to make such a creamy turkey noodle soup without having to add a drop of cream. It's thick and creamy with a punch of flavor. No one would ever guess that the flavor and noodles came from a pack of Ramen. Carrots and celery add a touch of freshness to the soup. A great way to use leftover turkey. Or, if you crave this not at the holidays use a store-bought rotisserie chicken. Hearty and comforting, this will be perfect on a cold day.

Thanks to the flour this is a very thick soup. If it's too thick for you, add a little water until it gets to a consistency you like.

    In a large stockpot, add butter and melt. Add the onions, carrots, and celery. Saute until almost tender.
  • Flour added to the veggies.
    Add the flour.
  • Cooking the veggies and flour.
    Brown for a few minutes (like making gravy).
  • Adding chicken stock to the pot.
    Add the stock and stir until the flour is dissolved and the mixture is creamy.
  • Salt, pepper, Ramen noodle packs, and seasoning added to the pot.
    Add the salt, pepper, Ramen noodle packs, and seasoning. Cook for a few minutes.
  • Adding turkey to the soup.
    Then add the chicken or turkey.
  • Turkey noodle soup simmering.
