Turkey Tuesday III

Sometimes I look forward to the obligatory turkey sandwich after thanksgiving more so than the big meal ;)  In anticipation of some leftovers from the upcoming holiday, I tried out a few recipes that would put that turkey to good use!  Feel free to check out the Curried Turkey Salad and Crustless Turkey & Spinach Quiche featured the past couple weeks.


For the last tuesday before Thanksgiving, I thought I would share some other recipes that I've had a chance to try out...

The first is a Spicy Turkey Soup w/Yogurt, Chickpeas and Mint.  I loved the technique used to create this creamy soup (hint:  it doesn't involve cream!!).  Don't leave out the smoked paprika butter and mint, they pack the flavor for this soup!



The second recipe is for a Sweet Potato Hash with Turkey and Poached Eggs.  I added a chopped red pepper and definitely wouldn't leave it out next time.  I might also increase the thyme, or  instead add some cumin and chipotle/adobo sauce for a richer flavor.



What are you looking forward to most this Thanksgiving??   I'm excited for my parents to join me down in Boston for the holiday!!

Ooh, I'm first to comment. Awesomeness.
Both of those pictures are so pretty. The soup sounds so hearty. I'm definitely much more into turkey dishes than just plain old turkey we get at the big dinner.
See you tonight! :D

Personally, I'm excited about pie. So much pie. And also that soup that you made. Those flavors are my kind of deal.

Your sweet potato has looks positively delicious! I am looking forward to Mom's stuffing!

I'm with you on the awesomeness that is the leftover "gobbler" sandwich!

I'm most looking forward to meeting my little niece for the first time down in Austin :). Oh, and the fact that on Thanksgiving, nobody bats an eye if I have 3 desserts after a big turkey dinner ;).

Oooh the second dish speaks to me most! Yay runny eggs!

I'm not going back for THanksgiving, but I really enjoyed my break from school (though finals is around the corner).

I have a feeling that your parents ate well while they visited you.

I have been making a similar hash (minus the turkey) for dinner on the regular lately- it is SO good! Nothing like a quick to throw together, but protein packed and tasty meal. Hope you're having a good week so far

Kerstin said...

Oh man, I wish I would have seen that soup before I made the one I did - looks scrumptious!

Val said...
