I used some leftover deli meat, since it was already sliced and I didn't have any other cooked poultry. This soup was great, and I think it would be excellent instead of chicken noodle soup for when someone is sick, especially since it has garlic (natural antibiotic) and ginger (calms upset stomachs.) Definitely will be making this soup again. For ZWT9
Loved this versatile soup ellie. I must confess that I used large shrimp instead of turkey as I didn't have any leftover turkey to use. The shrimp worked well in this soup. I made the rest of the recipe as written, it had so much flavor and great textures. Thanks for sharing another family favorite.
