This is a basic turkey soup. I got a package of large turkey wings, and simmered them for a few hours. I took the wings out, got all the meat off the bones, strained the stock, cleaned the pot and reduced the stock by about half.
That can all be put aside. I did it on a separate night.
The rest of the recipe consists of: (all veggies are chopped & all herbs are fresh)
- 2 large carrots
- 1 medium Vidalia onion
- 4 stalks of celery
- 3 cups of Swiss chard (or spinach)
- 1 tsp. thyme
- 1 tsp. marjarom
- 2 tsp. parsley
- 2 ts[ salt
- 1/2 tsp. white pepper
- 1 cup barley
- 2 tsp. garlic
Saute carrots, garlic, onions, celery in a small bit of olive oil. Add turkey stock, herbs and stir for a few minutes. Add barley and simmer until barley is done. Add turkey and Swiss chard. Adjust herbs to taste.
