This recipe used the last of my turkey from thanksgiving. I used a wing, and the meat fell off the bone on its own after simmering the soup for a couple hours.

Recipe Ingredients for Turkey Lentil Soup

3 cups green lentils
2 cups red lentils
6 cups stock, turkey
2 cups water
2 onions, chopped
5 cloves garlic
2 tbsp rosemary
1/3 head cabbage
1 cup turkey (cook on bone)
1/4 c olive oil
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper

Recipe Directions for Turkey Lentil Soup

Saute the onions and garlic in the olive oil until the onion is clear. Add the lentils, stock, rosemary, salt, pepper, turkey (as mentioned above, I used one wing from the turkey). Add water to get broth to desired amounts (~2 cups for what I used here, but it could be more or less also depending on how thick you want the soup). Heat mixture to a slight bubble and add cabbage. Allow to bring to a bubble, and lower heat. Simmer for 1 1/2 to 2 hours or until lentils are "gentle" and creamy. Stir frequently when simmering - about once every 15 minutes.
