After a huge Turkey meal there are always leftovers.
Today I decided to cook these up into a huge soup.
3 Large Sweet Potatoes
7 Large Root Parsley
7 Normal Sized Carrots
3 Stick Celery
Celeriac (can be dropped if you are allergic)
3 Single Clove Garlic
1 Red Onion
2 Yellow Onions
1 Can of Chickpeas
2 Cans of Chopped Tomatoes
3 Small Cans of Tomato Puree
Chop all the vegetables into 1×3 cm sized chunks (or to your own preference) and add to the casserole.
Leftover Turkey – Minimum 1 kg, but use whatever you have.
Salt, Pepper, Chili, Herbs (I do not specify any in particular here because it depends on what I have in the cabinet, but I always have Oregano and Basil as a minimum). I also chose to add some hot sauces for taste. You don’t have to!
Let the Soup Slow Cook for 2 hours!
Its a real Treat!
This amount of soup should be enough for 10-15 people and whatever is not eaten day 1 or 2 is perfect to freeze in portion sized Tupperware boxes and bring to work or school for lunch!
Some years ago I was in California visiting family where I was asked to make a beet soup from a recipe out of a magazine. Of course I never saved this recipe, but lately I have been thinking about that soup and not remembering all the ingredients I decided that I just make up a recipe. It turned out quite well and it both taste and look delicious.
- 2 table spoons of Olive Oil (I used Olive Oil with Basil taste, but regular olive oil tastes just as good)
- 1 Onion
- 1/2 Red Onion
- 5 medium size Beets
- 3 Carrots
- 1 big SweetPotato
- 1/4 celeriac
- 1 Single Clove Garlic (or 4 cloves of garlic)
Cut the ingredients in small (carrots) and big pieces (all the other) and throw them all in a casserole (ca. 4 litres) with enough water to cover them. Cook until all of them are soft (almost 30 minutes).
Once all the vegetables are soft use an Immersion (stick) blender to mash them. Add salt and pepper as well as other spices (chili) for taste.
Serve with 1 tablespoon of SourCream or Creme Fraiche per serving. Mix with Soup and add Basil for decoration :)
