Curried Turkey-Peanut Soup
Turkey leftovers don't have to be limited to tetrazzini and sandwiches. This soup draws inspiration from a similar Senegalese version. For an extra spicy soup, add 1 or 2 stemmed, seeded, and minced jalapeño or serrano chiles to the pot along with the garlic in step 1.
Why This Recipe Works
This sweet and savory African-inspired recipe combines leftover turkey with sweet potatoes, curry powder, and peanut butter. Toasting the curry powder and cumin intensified their color and flavor. Cooking the rice in the soup saved on dishes and also helped build layers of flavor in our Curried Turkey-Peanut Soup. Adding the leftover turkey at the very end of cooking ensured that it stayed tender.
