Mom's Oven - Thanksgiving Day Turkey Noodle Soup

Thanksgiving Day celebration has passed.  When family members bring their own food to share to celebrate this special day under one roof, surely, there are a lot of leftover foods like, turkey.  What to do with leftover turkey?  Here’s a simple, tasty recipe that you can try cooking it.  We know that it’s getting colder this fall season and winter season is also approaching.  It will be a delightful day to have a hot soup on the table during our meal which is usually, the first one to be served on the table.   It will not only nourish  our body, but also gives us warmth, lifts up our mood or appetite, and makes us feel better when we’re sick.  It is low in fat and great during dieting period.  It helps restore the necessary water balance in our body which in turn, keeps our blood pressure and salt content under control.   



½  lb          leftover turkey meat (without the bones)
10 c           water
½ of pack  rice sticks noodles (Hsinchu rice stick - 14oz /396 g)
1 tsp          garlic powder
1 tsp          Italian seasoning
1 tbsp        Lawry’s seasoning salt
1 tsp          ground black pepper
4 cubes      chicken broth
1 pc           small onion, chopped
3 c             frozen /fresh mixed vegetables, precut
5 c             water
                  milk (optional)

Preparation Time:  approximately 30 minutes

Cooking Time:  approximately 45 minutes

  1. Cut the leftover turkey (with bones) into small portions to fit in to a 5-quart cooking pot. Pour the first 10 cups of water and let it boil for 30 minutes. (Note: To avoid spillage, the amount of water will depend on how much leftover turkey you can put into the cooking pot.) 
  2. Soak the noodle in a big bowl with warm water.  Prepare the other ingredients.  (Note: Cut the vegetables into small pieces, if necessary.)
  3. As needed, debone the turkey and weigh the whole meat as indicated above.  (Note: Save the extra meat and broth, if there is any, and freeze them for the next soup making).  Separate the meat into small pieces and mix in to the cooking pot again.  Add another 5 cups of water into the pot.  Let it boil for another 10 minutes. 
  4. Add all the dry ingredients while boiling the turkey meat.  Stir to taste.
  5. Drain the water from the bowl.  Cut the rice stick noodles into halves.  Mix in to the pot and boil for another 3 minutes.  (Note: If you still like to add additional water, as the noodles can still absorb some of the water while boiling, you may do so.  But you might have to add additional seasoning or salt to maintain or suit your taste.)
  6. Mix in the onion and vegetables and boil for another 2 minutes. Serve hot immediately. (Note: Milk can also be added to a cup of soup, if preferred.)

Servings:  good for 5 to 7 people
