Who doesn’t love turkey, not just at Christmas time either but Christmas is probably the time you’ll make this dairy-free turkey soup recipe that’s for sure. Every year I’m left with turkey that I have no idea what to do with. Now don’t get me wrong my partner loves turkey but is also very fussy so not all of it gets eaten, thus leftover turkey in the fridge.
This dairy-free turkey soup recipe was actually given to me by my sister. She came up with the recipe, so I had to give it a go, although just like any recipe I make I changed a few bits to suit us better. Which is one of the things I love doing with recipes! The internet is full of recipes, there are probably hundreds the same but everyone makes theirs differently and I’m sure people change my recipes a little as well.
I know some people who always add cream to their soup recipes to give it a more rich flavour, however, I don’t do that and I prefer to make my dairy-free soup recipes, the partner can enjoy them even more that way and everyone is happy and full up!
Using Left Over Turkey At Christmas
As I said, I’m sure loads of people have turkey leftover at Christmas and I hate food waste. That’s why I love making recipes to use leftover turkey, this being one of them.
