Turkey Soup -- Yet Another

READY IN: 9hrs
Recipe by Darlene10

A recipe that I have made over the years. It comes from Best of Bridge "Enjoy". Haven't made this for a couple of years but made it today and served it with beer bread. It's a little different than the other turkey soup recipes and thought I would share it. The cooking time includes preparing the broth from the turkey carcass.

Excellent soup! While being similar to my recipe, I found the rice, barley and dried vegetables made for a wonderfully delicious 'new' tasting Turkey Soup that made for an instant hit. I used a tin of plum tomatoes which I quartered. Served in white bowls the tomatoes made it look as good as it tasted and had me wishing for a camera. Served this with Dani Jean's French Bread 105342 ... a great combination!
