Directions

  1. Combine turkey carcass, water, 1 cup celery, 2 carrots, onion, 2 teaspoons salt, thyme, bouillon, and bay leaf in large 4 quart stockpot. Bring to boiling. Lower heat, and cover. Simmer for 1 1/2 hours. Strain stock, and discard solids. Skim off fat using ladle or fat separator. Pick meat off bones when cooled. Reserve meat.
  2. Combine 6 tablespoons flour and 1/2 cup milk in a jar with a tight fitting lid. Shake to combine. Pour stock into pot. Bring to simmering. Strain flour mixture through sieve into stock, stirring.
  3. Slice remaining 3 carrots. Add rutabaga, ground pepper, remaining 1/2 cup celery, and sliced carrots. Simmer 20 minutes, or until vegetables are tender.
  4. While the soup is simmering, prepare the dumplings. Combine parsley and bread in processor; whirl until medium size crumbs. Add 1 1/4 cups flour, baking powder, and salt; process just until combined. Add 1/2 cup milk and butter; process using on-off pulses just until blended.
  5. Drop mounded tablespoons of dumpling mixture into simmering soup. Place cover on pot. Cook for 12 minutes, or until dumplings are dry in center. Add turkey meat; cook 3 minutes, or until heated through.

I had to cook the soup for quite a bit longer than the recipie recommended to get the dumplings cooked. After this, the soup and the dumplings were quite good. I also found that after allowing the mixture to thicken in the refrigerator overnight, it made a most delicious stew for dinner the next evening.

This soup is awesome! Pure comfort food. I made this using the Thanksgiving turkey carcass. I pressed a few (4 or 5) large cloves of garlic while making the broth. I omitted the rutabega, added 5 small potatoes,added some fresh basil I had on hand for another recipe, and added a bit of salt. The flour/milk mixture makes a nice creamy broth. I do not have a food processor, therefore I used another recipe I had for the dumplings. Will definately be making this recipe again and again! Thanks Christine...

Great soup for leftover turkey. I didn't make the dumplings and omitted the rutabaga (whatever that is??) I used more bouillon probably 6 cubes or so. Came out really great!!Freezes great too!
