This month's recipe is: Day After Turkey Soup

Carcass of one turkey (about 1½ pounds) without skin

8 cups  chicken broth

1 head garlic, halved crosswise

2 bay leaves

2 sprigs fresh thyme

2 cups diced skinless turkey meat (white or dark meat)

 ½ pound green beans, trimmed and cut into 1 inch pieces

2 cups frozen corn kernels

1 large sweet potato, peeled and cut into ½-inch dice

1 cup small dry pasta, such Orzo

½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

 Sea salt

 Crusty bread for serving



1. Put the turkey carcass, broth, garlic, bay leaves and thyme in a large Dutch oven or Stainless Steel Stockpot(cut carcass in pieces if necessary so it fits) and add enough water to cover by an inch. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat; lower heat and simmer, uncovered, about 40 minutes. Strain the soup through a fine-mesh strainer into a large bowl; discard the solids. Add all but 2 cups of the broth back to the Pot; reserve the remaining broth for another use (it will keep refrigerated up to 3 days or frozen up to 1 month).


2. Add the turkey meat, green beans, corn and sweet potatoes to the pot  cover and cook over medium heat for 15 minutes. Add the pasta and continue to cook, uncovered, until the pasta and potatoes are tender, 10 to 12 minutes. Stir pepper and season to taste with salt. Serve with the bread.
