Gumbo-Style Turkey Soup
If you're looking for gumbo-flavor without the daylong cook time, check out this recipe that utilizes leftover Thanksgiving turkey. No leftover turkey on hand? No worries, just buy a turkey breast and bake or pick up a rotisserie chicken from your grocery store for a simple swap. When cooking, be sure to allow the roux enough time to develop a deep caramel color. This will serve as a delicious flavor base for your soup. Fans of spice will love the kick from Spicy Andouille. Top each bowl with a few leaves of parsley for a fresh finishing touch. Be sure to serve with thick slices of crunchy French bread to help sop up the last few drops of broth. This soup feeds eight, making it the perfect day-after-Thanksgiving meal to serve lingering house guests.
