Turkey Quinoa Soup

Soup2 I love leftover turkey at Thanksgiving and Christmas because there are so many things to make with it. This year I decided to create a soup because…well because I love soup!! I was lucky enough to have used a Blue Goose Pure Foods Organic turkey and I have to say there really is such a difference between organic poultry and conventional. I have combined Shredded turkey, celery, onions, carrots, swiss chard and both red and black quinoa. Add a few seasonings and you have a healthy and delicious soup for lunch or dinner.

Instructions
  1. Place first 8 ingredients in a large stock pot. Fill enough water to cover all contents and low boil until the bones are very soft and most of the meat has fallen away from the bones; about 2.5 hours. Let cool and then strain all the liquid from the contents, keeping the liquid in another large stockpot. Pick through remaining soup keeping all meat. Throw away the rest. Put meat back in with the broth. Then add next 8 ingredients. Simmer soup for 1 hour and season to taste. Leftovers can be easily frozen.
