After 400+ posts, this soup is by far the simplest–yet still tasty–of all soups we have ever posted. It has just TWO main ingredients, yet both ingredients bring a lot of flavour and go together well. Although it’s possible to add other ingredients, such as apricot kernels, I intentionally kept this quick and simple and served to my family for dinner. Everyone agreed it was still yummy.
You may have noticed that around Thanksgiving and Christmas time, we always post turkey soups because that’s when we have readily available turkey bones on hand– delicious leftovers from the festivities. Turkey is one of the leanest meats to use for soups yet is often overlooked or forgotten — so next time you eat turkey, remember to save the bones for soup!
- 1 turkey bones
- 1/4 pumpkin (medium size) cut into chunks
- 1.5 L water
- Salt to taste
- Bring water and turkey bones to a boil in a large pot
- Boil on medium about 1 hour
- Regularly scoop off any foam that may rise to the surface
