    Turkey Noodle Soup is a quick, easy and comforting turkey noodle soup recipe filled with savory broth, tender turkey and lots of vegetables!

    The winter months are upon us and I crave a warm bowl of soup when the chill hits. Turkey noodle soup is the perfect (and quick) way to warm your soul. Full of veggies, savory broth, tender turkey and pearls of pasta.

    Turkey Stock is the base to great gravy, sauce and stuffing. Make your own for robust flavor and maximum health benefits.

    Most people think of chicken noodle soup as the “food for the soul” but turkey noodle soup is just as good! While very similar, I substituted turkey stock, turkey (clearly) and pearl couscous for egg noodles. The same seasonings and garlic dill oysters crackers make this a winning dish!

     

    Another bonus? My version has such a thick and robust turkey stock, that the actual soup only takes 20 minutes to prepare! I used frozen vegetables, but you are more than welcome to use fresh.

    Use 1 1/2 cups chopped carrots, green beans, corn and a 10 ounce bag of raw pearl onions, skins removed, but whole.  Add at the same time at the turkey and even toss in other veggies if you wish, like celery, parsnip or rutabaga!

    I also swapped out traditional egg noodles for pearl couscous. After using them in my 10-Minute Italian Seafood Stew, they became my preferred pasta for soups. Since they boil in turkey stock, they are extra flavorful.

    Make sure you place any leftovers in an oversized container because they continue to swell and get even larger!

    If you are planning to make your own turkey stock, prepare it the day before and make sure to read my tips for how to make stock. Otherwise, use a store bought stock or broth, either chicken or turkey will do.
