Leftover Roast Turkey Soup

Adapted from Jamie Oliver’s recipe from Jamie’s Christmas with Bells On.

I love Mr. Oliver’s way of throwing every leftover from a hearty roast dinner – even the gravy – into a big pot, adding stock, simmering, blending and calling it soup. I’ve made a few adjustment to his recipe to work in more leftovers and use more of the ingredients I typically have on hand after whipping up a roast dinner.
