Recipe: Leftover Turkey Corn Soup

Savour those turkey leftovers with these refreshing recipes. No casseroles here…we promise.

If you’re like me, you’re sitting on pounds of leftover turkey and looking for a fresh way to make use of it all. Savour Winnipeg has you covered. We’ve rounded up a remedy for that tired old turkey casserole with a series of refreshing recipes for those lovely leftovers.


  • 1/2 lb of leftover turkey (white or dark meat)
  • 2 Tbsp (30 mL) butter
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 celery stalk, diced
  • 1 carrot, sliced
  • 2 Tbsp (30 mL)all-purpose flour
  • 3 cups (750 mL) chicken stock
  • 1 potato, peeled & diced
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) frozen corn
  • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) thyme
  • 1 bay leaf
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. In a frying pan, heat butter and cook onion, celery and carrot for 1 minute.
  2. Reduce heat to low and add flour. Mix and cook for 1 minute to get rid of that raw flour flavour, then add stock and bring to a boil.
  3. Add turkey, potato, corn, thyme and bay leaf. Cook on low heat 15 minutes longer, or until potato is cooked.
  4. Add salt and pepper, to taste. Optionally garnish with cilantro.
