Leftover Turkey Soup

What’s the point of making great stock if you don’t use some right away? This soup is a generic-stuff-leftover-in-my-fridge kind of soup. You don’t have to follow the recipe exactly. Use whatever you have on hand. The below recipe is something I threw together and it was delicious.
1 cup dried Navy Beans (substitute with pasta if desired)
3 slices of bacon or pancetta, diced
2 carrots, medium dice
5 shallots, sliced
3 cloves or garlic, minced
1 stalk of celery, chopped
3 potatoes, diced
1 tablespoon butter
4 cups of stock
Left over turkey meat (however much you have 1/2c or a cup)
Splash white wine
Thyme, marjoram, salt & pepper
  1. Prepare the dried beans as instructed on the package. Note: A “quick hot soak” takes at least 1 hour, so prepare this ahead of time.
  2. Cook the bacon in a large pot until just crisp and add wine to deglaze. Add onions, carrots, garlic, and butter. Cook on low heat for approx 10 mins until onions are translucent.
  3. Add stock, celery, potatoes, spices, turkey and beans. Bring to a boil and simmer for approx 20 minutes until potatoes and beans are tender. Correct seasonings and enjoy.
