Easy Creamy Turkey Vegetable Soup

When we have some extra turkey or chicken, we’re making creamy soup! Love being able to add what ever vegetables we want and making a comforting soup out of it. It’s so filling and satisfying that you can make a whole meal out of it! Just add a nice side salad and you have a fanatic low carb soup dinner in minutes. If you have leftover turkey from Thanksgiving, this soup is even easier to make! Or if you have leftover roast chicken, it’s the perfect time to make this into a creamy chicken soup.

Can You Freeze This Soup?

Yes, it’s a great make ahead and freeze recipe. We like to freeze them in small freezer safe containers. When we’re ready to eat, we plan the day ahead. Take the frozen soup out of the freezer and keep it in the fridge to thaw a bit. Then when you’re ready to re-heat, just pour it into a pot.

If you want a more rich soup base use half & half or cream instead of the milk. This soup also works great with many non-dairy milks, preferably non-sweetened. You can also substitute cooked chicken for the turkey. If you want to make this a very low carb or KETO  soup version, just leave out the potatoes. You can add spinach, kale or celery for lowest carb versions.
