I roasted a turkey breast for dinner last week and had lots of leftovers! I repurposed said leftovers in a soup, perfect for cold weather days.
4 c. chicken broth
2 1/2 lbs. leftover roasted turkey breast
2 medium yellow onions
1 tsp. olive oil
15 oz. navy beans, drained
15 oz. Great Northern beans, drained
28 oz. fire roasted diced tomatoes, drained
1 tbs. tomato paste
1 tbs. cumin
1 tbs. chili powder
2 bay leaves
S&P, to taste
1 tbs. fresh parsley
In large pot, bring chicken broth to slow boil. Rough chop roasted turkey breast into bite sided pieces. Add to pot. Finely dice onions and sauté with oil in non-stick saucepan. When sautéed to a golden brown, remove from heat and add to soup pot. Add beans, tomatoes, tomato paste, cumin, chili powder and bay leaves to pot. Reduce heat to simmer and cook for 2 hours. Stirring occasionally. Discard bay leaves. Finely chop parsley. Dish up and garnish with parsley and freshly cracked pepper. Serve hot and enjoy.
Sometimes, it takes a little creativity to use up those leftovers. How do you plan to use your Thanksgiving leftovers?
