Mashed Potato and Turkey Soup

If you love soup, this recipe utilizes both the turkey and the mashed potato left-overs! One of my favorites…


  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 medium yellow onion, diced
  • 2 cups button mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 medium carrot, coarsely grated
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 4 cups low sodium chicken broth
  • 3 cups mashed potatoes
  • 2 cups cooked turkey, chopped
  • salt & freshly ground black pepper, to taste


In a large saucepan over medium-high heat, melt butter. Add the onion, mushrooms, carrot, and thyme, and saute until the onion is just translucent, about 4-5 minutes.

Add the broth and mashed potatoes. Stir until potatoes are mostly dissolved and broth is smooth.

Add the turkey and bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook, stirring occasionally, until heated through, about 10 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
