A great way to use up any leftover Turkey you might have from the Christmas dinner. It's sure to keep tummies warm during the cold winter also.
Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 60 minutes
Serves: 5 people
1 - Bay Leaves
3 - Celery
stalks, finely diced
1handfullCheesy Bread Croutons
1.5LChicken Stock Cube
125gSuperValu Button Mushrooms
1.25cmSuperValu Fresh Ginger
peeled and chopped
2tspSuperValu Fresh Thyme
(leftover turkey bones and meat)
Preheat the oven to 220°C/gas mark 7.
Put the turkey bones on a roasting tray and roast in the oven for 20 to 30 minutes, until nicely coloured. This will bring out extra flavour, but you can use the leftover turkey bones without roasting them if preferred.
Remove the bones from the oven and place in a large saucepan with all the remaining ingredients except the croutons. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 30 to 40 minutes, until the vegetables are tender. Skim off any scum that might form on the surface.
Remove the bones from the broth and shred the cooked meat. Add the meat back to the broth and simmer for a further 2 to 3 minutes. Check the seasoning and serve immediately with some cheesy bread croutons.
