Turkey Soup with Fluffy Dumplings

Posted on 17 Oct 2014

It was Turkey Day (more commonly called Thanksgiving) this weekend past in Canada which always means there’s an abundance of food and leftovers. As such, I feel there’s no better use of your turkey carcass and extra meat than making turkey soup.

While recipe is a two-for-one—soup + dumplings— as I prefer dumplings in my turkey soup, you can instead use rice, noodles or even potato and skip my dumplings recipe.
