I didn't have leeks on hand, so I substituted onions. It was a hit and a great use of our leftover turkey.

Very good. I had no leeks but I added 1/2 an onion and an extra stalk of celery. The whole fam ate it right up.

I've been making this recipe for a winter now. I've used homemade vegetable or turkey broth and used leeks or a yellow onion. It always turns out well. This is a fabulous way to use up leftover turkey from the holidays. I cube up any leftover meat and throw any leftover celery and carrots in a ziploc bag with the turkey carcass to use for broth. All of it can go into the freezer to make this soup at a later date.<br/><br/>I like the idea of using wild rice instead of noodles to make it gluten free but I haven't had the chance to try that yet personally.

Yum, what an excellent way to use up leftover turkey. The only changes I made was I left out the bay leaves, only cause I didn't have any and didn't use any parsley. Other than that followed recipe exactly and got wonderful compliments from everyone at the table. Thanks for posting.

mmm...delicious! This was almost 2 meals for my family of 3.5 next time I'll double it. I used onions instead of leeks this time around. I also used a pound of ground turkey & whole wheat egg noodles. I'll be making this again soon!

I made this with homemade turkey stock and used 1/2 an onion in place of the leeks. I also added one package of sliced mushrooms and I replaced the egg noodles with broken spaghetti. Next time, I will use the egg noodles. This is one of the best soups I have made to date. Thank you for the recipe!

Fantastic! I kicked up the pepper and did a bit of cayenne pepper. Also used onions instead of leeks cause I did all this with what I had on hand. Used up carrots, celery, leftover turkey, etc. Thank you for posting this!

EXCELLENT. Used one small onion and this turned out beautifully. I used leftover turkey from Christmas, and this hit the spot! Family loved it! Will be doing this with leftover turkey and chicken here on out!!

Great recipe, but since our family does not like leeks and peas, I eliminated those items and it was still great. Also, I used 6 cups chick broth, plus 2 cups chicken stock to give it a tasty boost and only 1 tsp. thyme since that is so fragrant. Will definitely make again.
