Each year on the day after Thanksgiving, our daughter, Sarah, makes this simply scrumptious soup! Thought you might like to try it and so here’s the recipe.


6 cups homemade turkey stock (recipe follows)
1 cup of five of the following vegetables diced:
• celery
• carrots
• onions
• green beans
• cauliflower
• mushrooms
• Brussels sprouts
• corn
• peas
(Use canned vegetables to supplement.)
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 cup mashed potatoes
1 can straw mushrooms, drained (available at Asian food markets)
2 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon oregano
1 ½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1 cup dried orzo
Gravy to taste (get a packet)

In a Dutch oven, heat olive oil and sauté your choice of vegetables for 5 minutes. Add minced garlic and cook another 3 minutes.

Add the turkey broth, mashed potatoes, straw mushrooms, chili powder, oregano, salt and pepper and bring to a boil. Add orzo, cook until tender (about 6-7 minutes) and serve.
