Turkey Vegetable Soup Soup, wonderful soup. So nourishing and delicious and such a frugal meal.  A really simple way to make soup is to keep a container in your freezer and toss in leftover vegetables. I started doing that when I was first out on my own in my twenties.  Nowadays we eat so many vegetables there are rarely any left, and those are often eaten with breakfast or lunch the next day.

It's also a super way to use up veggies that have been sitting around for awhile and need to be used.

After making the turkey stock, that's exactly what I did, and here's the recipe.  Feel free to substitute or use your own combination of vegetables!
