  1. Dice carrots, potatoes, turnip or corn and additional cooked cubed turkey.

  4. Remove meat from rack and add to broth.
  5. Add soup mix, bouillon cubes and rest of dried vegetables or lentils.
  6. Simmer 1-½ hours stirring occasionally. Add tiny noodles and minced onion.
If you are going to add vegetables, do this now. Simmer until vegetables are cooked. Fifteen minutes before serving add cubed turkey if there was not enough meat on the rack. If soup is too thick, add water. If it is too thin add noodles. Serves many.

*Soup mix refers to a combination of dried legumes, lentils, rice and noodles you can buy prepackaged in any store.
