So you have leftover “Quick & Easy Vegetable Soup”, leftover “Persian Saffron Rice” and maybe some leftover turkey, ham or chicken in the freezer. How about turning your Vegetable Soup into a Turkey Soup and serving it over Rice? That’s what I did here.
I picked the meat off of out leftover Thanksgiving Turkey legs that I had stored in the freezer. I put the frozen leftovers of my “Quick & Easy Vegetable Soup” in a large stock pot and add the shredded turkey. Over medium heat I brought the ingredients to a simmer. Turned the heat down to low and continued to keep hot until I had re-warmed my leftover “Persian Saffron Rice” Now I am very lucky as I have Vintage Anchor Hocking Microware that warms food in the microwave without changing their texture or taste. Once the rice was warmed I then topped it with the newly combined Turkey Soup and dinner was served.
Well we didn’t finish off the newly combined Turkey Soup so I froze the remaining amount. The weather turned colder and we wanted a quick bowl of soup. Hey I have a couple bowls of Turkey Soup in the freezer.
In a medium sauce pan over medium-low heat I brought the frozen leftover Turkey Soup to a simmer, turned the heat down to low until I was ready to serve. I served this soup with our family recipe for “Native American Fry Bread” which are basically like whole wheat tortillas. It was perfect to warm us on this afternoon.
