Turkey Sweet Potato Soup

This simple, flavorful soup is the perfect dish for using up leftover turkey after Thanksgiving. It’s also wonderful with any soup-able leftover protein: chicken, beans, or extra firm tofu would all work as substitutes for turkey.

Ingredients

  • 2½ cups sweet potatoes, peeled and chopped
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 (14 oz.) can low-sodium chicken broth
  • ½ tsp. marjoram
  • ½ tsp. thyme
  • Cayenne to taste
  • 2 cups chopped cooked turkey
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 2 Tbsp. cornstarch
  • 2 cups skim milk

Directions

  1. Combine sweet potatoes, celery, onion, garlic, water, broth, marjoram, thyme, and cayenne in an large, heavy-bottomed pan. Bring to a boil.
  2. Reduce heat to low and simmer until sweet potatoes are cooked (15-20 minutes). Stir in turkey and peas.
  3. Combine cornstarch and milk in a small dish, then stir it slowly into the soup mixture. Cook until thick and bubbly (5 minutes).
