found this fabulous recipe on Chowhound.com. It's a great way to use the left
over turkey and homemade stock
from Thanksgiving. This recipe makes a thick and hearty soup.
This recipe can be made using chicken stock (which is the classic recipe).
It's a rule in our house that we never eat any soup the same day it's made.
An overnight in the refrigerator gives flavors time to meld together. Do yourself
a favor, make this soup a day ahead of time, you'll get the best flavor that way.
Please read my "cook's tips" following the recipe.
Turkey Mulligatawny Soup
2 tablespoons unsalted
1 medium yellow onion, medium dice
1 medium Granny Smith apple,
peeled, cored and medium dice
1 medium carrot, peeled and medium dice
5 medium cloves garlic, finely chopped
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon curry powder
1 tablespoon garam
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
turkey stock, or low sodium chicken broth
2 cups diced, cooked turkey
1 1/2 cups COOKED basmati rice
1 14-ounce can unsweetened coconut milk
1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
1/2 cup packed fresh cilantro leaves and tender stems for garnish
& pepper to taste
butter in large pot over medium heat. When it foams, add onion, season with salt,
and cook until tender, about 3 minutes. Add apple, carrot and garlic, stir to
coat in butter and season again with salt. Add freshly ground black pepper. Saute
until apple is tender and onion is translucent, about 5 minutes.
flour, curry powder, garam masala, cumin and cloves over the vegetables and stir
until the spices are fragrant and the flour has cooked slightly, about 2 minutes.
add stock, stirring until flour has dissolved. Bring to a simmer and cook until
the vegetables are tender, about 10 minutes.
turkey, COOKED rice, coconut milk and lemon juice and return to soup to
a simmer for about 10 minutes. Stir in lemon zest, if using and season with additional
salt and freshly ground black pepper as desired. Garnish with cilantro and serve.
Cook's Tips: Make sure you cook the flour and spices for at least
2 minutes as called for in the recipe. Don't rush this step and stir the vegetables
the entire time. I only added
one cup of the stock to dissolve the flour. When the flour was totally dissolved
and the stock thickening I added the rest. I think it's easier to tell if the
flour is incorporating well in a smaller amount of liquid.
I would suggest you make the final addition of salt and pepper, and decide about
adding lemon zest AFTER the soup has sat for a day. The flavors change incredibly
- for the better - if the soup sits (refrigerated) overnight.
soup is quite thick. Add chicken stock if you need or want to thin out the soup.
When serving a very small
squirt of lemon juice helps to freshen it up and a dollop of sour cream (which
goes great with the cilantro) has a nice cooling effect.

A side note: Before I made this soup
the first time I read the comments left by others who had made it. Some people
chose to change the recipe, leaving out key ingredients (one person made it without
garam masala). The first time I prepare a recipe I always follow instructions
and NEVER leave an ingredient out. That is the only true way to measure how good
a recipe is.
