This soup goes together quickly and is packed with so many good things. It’s a great way to use up your leftover Thanksgiving turkey and a clever vehicle to get your family to eat their greens.



In a heavy soup pot, heat oil over medium heat and add onions, celery root, carrots and parsnips. Cook, stirring, until onions are translucent and slightly tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in quinoa and herbs. Cook for 1 minute more.

Add 2 quarts of chicken or turkey stock and simmer the mixture for about 15 to 20 minutes, or until quinoa is tender. (If the quinoa absorbs too much liquid, add additional stock.) Stir in turkey meat and greens and season with salt and pepper. Simmer for 10 minutes to wilt the greens.
