Turkey soup with tomatoes and herbs.

Great soup, if you have turkey leftovers from holidays or if you just wish to have a rich, hearty soup for lunch. Any part of turkey will be good (I cooked mine from turkey neck and some leftovers). It takes 30-40 minutes to cook and the taste is amazing. The key to great taste are tomatoes and herbs.

Ingredients:
2/3 lb of Turkey meat
1 white onion
1.5 cup of boiled pinto beans (boil separately or canned rinsed very well)
½ can of diced tomatoes
2-3 potatoes
½ of red bell pepper
½ teaspoon of cumin
½ teaspoons of basil
½ teaspoon of oregano
Pinch of black pepper
Pinch of salt.
1 carrot (optional)
3 quarts (approx.) of water;
1/3 cup dill

Instructions:

Prepare the vegetables: peel onion, carrot and potato. Wash everything carefully.
Shred the carrot, cut the potato in mid-sized chunks, and finely chop the onion. Set half of onion aside.
Wash and chop the red bell pepper.
Take a 4 quart pan, put the turkey meat and cover it with water (approximately 3 quarts), set on medium heat and wait until it starts boiling. Take away the scum if any. Add salt, pepper, bell pepper, carrot, potato and onion. Boil for 15-20 minutes, then, add the tomatoes(canned diced tomatoes) and spices: cumin, basil, oregano. (if you have fresh herbs basil ,oregano etc. – add them at the end). Let the soup boil for 10-15 more minutes and then, just before serving add the finely chopped dill.
Serve warm, with toasted bread or garlic bread.
Sincerely,
Helen
