Our Thanksgiving is in October here in Canada so after hosting Thanksgiving dinner last month I threw together this utterly delicious, simple soup. I love using turkey leftovers in this way! 

This soup seriously took only minutes to make. We served it with turkey and cranberry sandwiches on fresh herb bread. Best. Leftovers. Ever!

This leftover soup recipe makes four servings and is perfectly paired with a turkey sandwich. Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week.

This is one of those soup recipes that is super versatile. Try some of these suggestions!

Substitutions:

  • Swap out the curry and ginger for more traditional spices like poultry seasoning, black pepper and a bay leaf.
  • Add wild rice, egg noodles or white rice for a hearty soup.
  • Use whatever leftovers you may have! We’ve added white onion, green beans, celery stalks, leftover gravy and even diced brussels sprouts in the past.
  • After blending the soup, leftover turkey meat can also be added. Simply chop up dark meat or turkey breast into bite sized pieces and add them to the pot.
  • This creamy soup can easily be cooked in the slow cooker for 4 hours on low.
  • Use sweet potatoes or yams instead of squash.
