Turkey Noodle Soup with Mushrooms, Pea Shoots and Bonito Flakes

Turkeys are funny birds. Every time I make one for Thanksgiving, and every year, no matter how many guests we have, there always seems to be a bottomless pit of leftover turkey. While there are some awesome leftover recipes out there, this one has the virtue of speed and ease of preparation. Plus it tastes nothing like the Thanksgiving meal, which is a bonus. Anyone else sick of cranberry sauce and turkey together by now?

Turkey Noodle Soup with Wakame, Pea Shoots and Bonito Flakes

Include as much as you like of each ingredient

INGREDIENTS

Wakame (dried seaweed)

Bean threads (dried noodles)

Miso Ginger broth (I used a prepared one, but if you prefer, you can make your own)

Dried shiitake mushrooms

Roasted turkey, skin and bones removed, meat chopped

Pea shoots

Bonito flakes

Sriracha chili sauce

METHOD

Soak the wakame in cold water in a small container. Soak the bean threads in cold water in a separate container. While these ingredients are rehydrating, put the miso ginger broth in a medium pot. Add the shiitake mushrooms and bring to a boil. Remove from the heat, and in a large heatproof bowl, add the turkey meat and season the broth. Drain the wakame and bean threads. Add to the broth. Pour some soup into a bowl and top with a few pea shoots, as many bonito flakes as you’d like (careful, these are salty!) and sriracha chili sauce if you like it spicy.

  1. Nabeyaki udon, turkey style, looks terrific. I’ll relish on others turkey leftovers as the only remains of our turkey between our family and hosted guests, a stripped carcass.
