On a rainy/snowy/rainy day like today, soup for dinner is a must! Want to see what today looked like?
Turkey soup is very popular in our family and while I am positive that pretty much every family has a perfectly good recipe for turkey soup, this one is worthy of trying.
It just so happens that it is one of the many versions of soup that Dr. Tae Yun Kim has created. It is easy to prepare, outstandingly delicious and happens to pair perfectly with her brand new gluten-free bread recipe. The fresh herbs really make this superb!
Don’t worry – not these girls! Those are quite safe. Those are wild turkeys roaming the area. They get to live on Dr. Tae Yun Kim’s property freely and nobody bothers them.
To make the soup, here is what you need
2 whole turkey wings
about 1/8 c raw minced garlic, or more if you can handle it 😉
Himalayan salt to taste
black pepper to taste
1/2 medium yellow onion, cut into small strips
2 stalks celery, peeled and cut into bite sized pieces
1 medium size carrot, cut into bite siz slices
1 cup mushrooms, thinly sliced
1 small zucchini, thinly sliced
3 stalks broccolini, cut into bite size pieces
4-5 stalks of asparagus, cut into pieces
2-3 sprigs of fresh Thyme
1 large sprig of fresh Rosemary
1/2 cup chopped parsley
1/2 cup chopped green onions
Before you get started with the actual soup, you’ll need to pre-boil the turkey, as Dr. Tae Yun Kim recommends, to get rid of as many impurities as possible. To do this, cover the turkey wings with water, add 3Tbs Kosher salt and some crushed garlic and let come to a boil – boil until the foam stops bubbling up. This probably will take about 10 – 15 minutes. Drain, rinse, rinse your pot well and fill with about a quart of water.Cut the turkey wings into sections, and add to pot, season with salt and pepper.
Let it come to a boil, and cook for about 15 -20 minutes; then add the onions, herbs, carrots and celery, let boil for 5 minutes, and add rest of vegetables, adding the parsley and green onions just before serving. You can serve this with any kinds of (gluten-free) noodles and/or bread. It is most delicious with this particular bread! The blend of herbs and mushrooms and all the other flavors really makes this soup special. Go ahead and give it a try!
