Leftover Turkey and Dumplings Soup with Winter Greens and Cranberry Garnish

Serves: 4 to 6

This recipe is similar to the old children’s story "Stone Soup." Each ingredient is a gift from the remnants of a joyous holiday meal, and the sum of its parts is equally as fulfilling and sumptuous as the original. Happy holidays!



In a soup pot, heat the oil over medium heat and add the onions, celery, carrots, garlic and herbs. Cook until the vegetables are translucent and becoming tender, about 5 to 7 minutes.

Stir in the stock, mashed potatoes, turkey, gravy, greens, Worcestershire, Spike and pepper. Bring soup to a low simmer and cook gently, stirring occasionally, for 20 to 30 minutes.

To serve

Place 3 to 5 dumplings in the bottom of a wide soup bowl and pour the soup over them. Garnish with cranberry sauce and chopped parsley.
