We thought we were done with soup, but a cold front — it’s only in the 80s — swept through. We went light on the seasoning and salt because smoked turkey has an intense flavor.
Smoked Turkey and Turnip Soup
- 2 1/2 cups, smoked turkey, chopped
- 4 cups cooked white beans
- 2 cups turkey broth
- 1 small bunch turnip greens
- 1 tbsp fresh oregano, chopped
Wash turnips, separating out the greens. Chop the root vegetables in 1/2 inch chunks and the greens in slender ribbons, about three inches long. In a large pot, combine beans, turnip chunks, turkey and broth. Bring to a boil and then reduce to a simmer. Allow to thicken and the turnips to get tender, about 40 minutes. Throw in the oregano and the greens and allow greens to wilt, about 5 minutes. Taste and season with salt and pepper as needed.
