Turkey Frame Soup

Ingredients
1
meaty turkey frame
8
cups water
1
large onion, quartered
1/2
teaspoon garlic salt
 
Chopped cooked turkey, optional
1
16 ounce can tomatoes, cut up
1
tablespoon instant chicken bouillon granules
1 1/2
teaspoons dried oregano, basil, marjoram, or thyme, crushed
1/4
teaspoon pepper
3
cups (any combination) sliced celery, carrots, parsnips, or mushrooms; chopped onion or rutabagas; or broccoli or cauliflower flowerets
1 1/2
cups medium noodles

Directions

  1. Break turkey frame or cut in half with kitchen shears. Place in a large Dutch oven or kettle. Add water, onion, and garlic salt. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and simmer for 1-1/2 hours.
  2. Remove turkey frame. When cool enough to handle, cut meat off bones; coarsely chop. If desired, add more cooked turkey meat (enough to equal about 2 cups total). Set meat aside. Discard bones.
  3. Strain broth through a sieve lined with 2 layers of 100-percent-cotton cheesecloth; discard solids. Return broth to Dutch oven. Stir in undrained tomatoes, bouillon granules, herb, and pepper. Stir in vegetables. Return to boiling; reduce heat. Cover; simmer for 15 minutes.
  4. Stir in noodles. Cover and simmer for 8 to 10 minutes more or until noodles are done and vegetables are crisp-tender. Stir in cooked turkey; heat through. Serve immediately. Makes 6 main-dish servings.
  5. Make-Ahead Tip:
  6. For individual servings, prepare soup and freeze in 1-1/2-cup freezer containers, leaving a half-inch head space. Seal, label, and freeze up to 1 month. To serve, transfer 1 portion of frozen mixture to a small saucepan. Cover and cook over medium heat for 15 to 20 minutes or until heated through, stirring occasionally.
