Turkey Vegetable Soup
© Copyrighted 2000-2010
Updated

Maureen has made turkey soup every Thanksgiving after the turkey has been pretty well carved and picked over. This is one of her curry flavored vegetable turkey soups. I think it's absolutely the best anyone can make without salt or the use of chemically based broth substitutes.

Makes 12 to 16 cups
