I love leftovers, especially Thanksgiving leftovers. We were lucky to celebrate several Thanksgivings over the holiday weekend, and brought home lots of goodies. My dad let me keep the turkey carcass so I could make soup. It was so delicious and a perfect dinner after eating ridiculous amounts. I did go a little overboard with the orzo, so next time I will use half. What do you make with your leftovers?
Turkey and Orzo Soup Recipe by Melissa Parrish
-salt and pepper to taste
1) Make homemade stock with turkey carcass by putting bones in a pot cover with water. Add carrots, onions, garlic, and celery (all cut into bite size pieces). Simmer for an hour.
2) Remove bones. Skim off fat from top.
3) Bring to boil and add half box of orzo. Add kale, chopped up turkey, and parsley.
4) cook 9 minutes and season to taste.
