Servings: 4 servings 1x


  • 1lb leftover cooked turkey – shredded, sliced or cut into cubes
  • 3 stalks of celery
  • 2 large carrots
  • 1 yellow onion
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp dried parsley or 1 tbsp fresh chopped parsley
  • 1/2 tsp rubbed sage of ½  tbsp fresh chopped sage
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • 1 qt turkey broth or chicken broth
  • 4 cups of water
  • ¼ cup lemon juice
  • 8oz egg noodles or noodles of choice


  1. Dice celery, carrots and onion.
  2. Heat oil in a large heavy bottom pot like a stock pot or dutch oven over medium low heat and pour in the celery, carrots, and onion. Saute veggies until soft and fragrant about 5 minutes. Pour in salt, parsley, sage, garlic powder and pepper and toss veggies in the seasonings.
  3. Place cubed turkey  in the pot along with turkey broth, water and lemon juice. Bring soup to a boil, then cover and reduce to a simmer. Simmer for 20 minutes.
  4. Cook egg noodles in a separate pot to avoid the noodles soaking up too much soup broth. Drain noodles and set aside.
  5. Serve hot soup in bowls over the egg noodles. Garnish with salt, pepper, parmesan cheese and fresh herbs!


  • Use any type of noodles that you like for this dish
  • You can use chicken broth or vegetable broth in place of turkey stock
