Christmas is always good for lots of leftover turkey, so of course I had to make something out of it!
First, I pulled all the leftover meat off the bones and stored it in glass containers in the fridge. I made bone broth in the slow cooker with all the turkey bones. You can find my recipe for bone broth here.
Then after 24 hours when the bone broth was done, I strained the broth out and poured it into a large pot. I made 12 cups of broth in this batch.
Here is the recipe!
12 cups turkey bone broth
5 cups chopped turkey
1 large sweet potato, peeled and chopped into small cubes
10 large carrots (roughly 4 cups)
2 small celery bunches, chopped (roughly 4 cups)
5-6 garlic cloves, minced
1 large white onion, chopped
3 cups spinach or kale (or mix of both)
1/2 cup diced green onion
3 tbsp diced chives
1 tbsp parsley
1 tbsp oregano
2 tsp sage
Salt and pepper to taste
Pour turkey broth into pot and add sweet potato, carrots, celery, garlic, and onion. Bring to a boil and then reduce to simmer until everything starts getting soft. Add remaining ingredients including turkey and simmer for another 15 minutes or so.
Let cool and store in fridge or freezer. This is great for lunches, I’ve been eating it all week!
