A Hearty Turkey Soup

A Hearty Turkey Soup

My favorite season is finally here: fall! I’m so excited to drink copious amounts of hot chocolate and wear all my poufy sweaters and coats. I love the feeling of fall. The way the air smells and feels. I love cozying up to a blanket, or most of the time, my boyfriend.

One of my favorite dishes to make when it’s chilly outside is some sort of soup. I love a good steaming hot bowl of soup. I usually make more or less the same type of soup, plus or minus a few ingredients. It turns out to be the perfect bowl of joy on a chilly day. This one is delicious and easy to make. Just put how much you want of each ingredient instead of me telling you exact amounts.


  1. Water
  2. Turkey Legs
  3. Onion
  4. Garlic
  5. Curry powder
  6. Paprika spice
  7. Salt
  8. Ground black pepper
  9. Fox point seasoning
  10. Zucchini
  11. Potato
  12. Carrots
  13. Sweet Potato
  14. Tomato
  15. Eggs


  • Peel and chop an onion in half. Peel a few cloves of garlic.
  • Put both the onion and garlic cloves into a pot of water.
  • Add some sort of protein such as turkey legs or whatever part of the chicken you have.
  • Add salt, ground black pepper, curry powder, paprika spice, and fox point seasoning. Add as much as you want, add to taste.
  • Let the onion, garlic, turkey, and spices cook on a very low heat for 3 hours or more.
  • Once it’s cooked for at least 3 hours, add chopped potato and sweet potato.
  • Let it cook for 20 to 30 minutes.
  • Then add chopped carrots. Let it cook for another 20 minutes or so.
  • Add the remaining ingredients except for the eggs. Let all the veggies cook for 20 more minutes.
  • Then turn the pot up to boiling. Crack a few eggs into the soup.
  • After 5 minutes, your soup is ready.

      1. Soren, do you whisk the eggs with a fork and drizzle them into the soup? I’ve been making soup one night a week for the past month and want to continue to do so until the spring warm weather comes. This sounds like a delicious recipe to use leftover Thanksgiving turkey. Love the idea of the sweet potatoes. Thanks. P.S. I used to teach at YES and had your now 5th grade brother in my class.
