Made this soup tonight and it was delicious. Followed the soup recipe only as I had made stock earlier. Very flavourful and I would recommend this as a nice alternative to traditional turkey soup. If you like this style of flavouring, you will love this soup., Thanks for posting,
I bought a lot of turkeys, because they were dirt cheap, and I got pretty sick of the turkey taste. This soup is much better then traditional turkey soup. You cant taste the yogurt, it just adds a little zing. I’ll make this again for sure!
I LOVE LOVE LOVE this recipe and have made it so many times since first reading it last November. The first time I made it, I followed the recipe to a “T”…..almost. I got all of the ingredients into the pot and decided it was all too beige and needed a little color. I added some canned julienne carrots and some capers (just a little). Most of the time, I pick up a rotisserie chicken. YUM YUM! Thanks!
I attended Evie’s class w/ you and can attest to the fantastic flavors of this soup. Just unique enough to grab your attention, and goes together very easily w/ leftovers from turkey and Chinese take out :-) (think: rice). Because of a kosher leaning diet, I am searching for a good substitute for the yogurt that will a) hold up to heat and b) give similar flavor. Any thoughts on this challenge?
Loved loved loved this soup. My only substitution was sambal oelek for the cayenne. Thank you for your excellent blog.
This recipe is great! I made one little change because I didn’t have any paprika in the house. I used New Mexico chile powder instead. At this moment I’m eating it reheated for lunch and it’s fantastic. Thanks for the recipe!Steve
This is a great recipe! I modified it some by using the leftover turkey carcass and letting all ingredients simmer in my crockpot for about 8 hours with the carcass. In every other way I pretty much followed the recipe, adding a little more lemon juice and more paprika. It was fantastic but I had to spend some time picking the bones out. There is always so much meat still stuck on the turkey bones, it seems a shame to waste it every year! DEEE-licous!! Thank you!!
wow-wee…another home run. “one for the file”~ happy t’giving to you and yours, elise. (enjoying it in the parent’s new kitchen this year? ;)
Hi Elise, I am not a big fan of mint, can you suggest an alternative, or do I just skip the garnish? thx! :)
I would use chopped parsley in lieu of mint. ~Elise
