Leftover turkey? Not a problem with this savory soup. If you have the time, make your own stock with the turkey carcass; otherwise, chicken broth will work.

  • 1 Tbs ginger root, minced
  • 1 tsp soy sauce, low sodium
  • 1 tsp Herbes de Provence
  • 3 cups spinach leaves, fresh, chopped
  • 4 oz angel hair pasta, broken in half, uncooked

Directions

  • Spray a large soup pot with vegetable oil spray and sauté onions until translucent.
  • Add turkey stock or chicken broth and bring to a boil.
  • Add turkey, carrots, red pepper, ginger, soy sauce, and Herbes de Provence.
  • Simmer uncovered until carrots are soft but not completely done.
  • Add spinach and pasta to soup.
