This was really good. I ran out of bay leaves this week so I just left it out. I also found myself out of peas so I just double up on the green beans. I made a vegetarian version of this by subbing No Evil Commander Cluck "chicken" and No Chicken "chicken" broth. Even the "I don't like soup" kid liked it!
I used some leftover turkey to make this delicious soup. I followed the recipe exactly except I used about 1 1/2 cups turkey instead of just one cup. Next time I make it I think I'll add some rinsed and drained kidney beans or garbanzo beans. This is a wonderful brothy soup .... five stars for sure!
This was very good. I used normandy blend frozen veggies and a mixed frozen veggies just because it was what I had on hand and half a can of green beans as well. Didn't have the zucchini. Despite all of this it turned out very yummy!
Excellent soup! Thank you "nataliepooh" for the broth recipe--it's really good!
This soup is very good! Even my young daughter enjoyed it! I used canned vegetables instead of frozen, but the soup had plenty of flavor. It's great for a chilly night! I'll be making this one again!
I like a lot of veggies so I added the kidney beans AND garbanzo beans. I used canned chicken broth (I had cooked the turkey before I got this recipe and the juice was long gone) and it was still delicious! With a loaf of home made bread, a great way to use leftover turkey.
I submitted this recipe, and TOH did not include my recipe for homemade turkey stock, which is really what makes this soup so good. I boil a turkey carcass with 4 C water, 2 carrots, 2 celery, 1 onion, 1 lg. clove garlic, 1 parsley sprig, 1 bay leaf, 2 t. dried basil and 1 t. dried thyme. Boil until meat falls off bones, then strain and use in minestrone.
I was disappointed, not much flavor when I followed the recipe. Added some hot sauce and some canned tomato soup along with additional seasoning and it helped some.
This was excellent. I used homemade turkey stock and I think that is the key to this recipe turning out so well. Next time I will add more noodles than called for.
