From My Kitchen: Turkey Soup

For the first time in a few years, I finally found a good recipe for using leftover turkey from our traditional Thanksgiving meal, so I thought it would be nice to share it with you.

1/2 garlic clove

2 Tablespoons olive oil

Frozen mixed vegetables, half bag


1. Pour olive oil, garlic, and onion into crock pot and heat on low.

2. Add turkey, carrots, potatoes, and broth. Add bay leaf.

3. Cook on low for at least 4 hours. Add mixed vegetables and cook for 30 minutes more.
