Letter Thoup (Recipe: Turkey Alphabet Soup)

On an average day, letters and numbers floating around in your soup bring warmth and goodness that brighten that average day and make it above average. We don’t need to aim for royal superlatives everyday such as best ever or most exciting, Above average is just fine. Actually, average is not...

Ingredients

  • Use any combination of vegetables, fresh or frozen. Fresh vegetables may be added directly to the soup raw, however, I prefer to saute before adding to the soup pot because of the added flavor caramelization brings to the party. I sauteed onions, sweet peppers, celery and carrots. The canned English peas require very little cook time and are added directly to the soup pot. The tiny little alphabet pasta requires very little cook time. It will continue to cook off the heat if there’s sufficient liquid in the pot. Add additional water or stock if necessary after the pasta has been added to the pot.
  • 6 quarts stock
  • 6 cups raw vegetables (I used onions, sweet peppers, celery and carrots)
  • olive oil
  • 4-1-1 seasoning
  • 4 cups cooked turkey, diced
  • 1 (15 ounce can) English peas, drained (I use LeSuer very young small sweet peas)
  • 16 ounces alphabet pasta, uncooked
