1 turkey carcass, picked nearly clean
water to fill pot
leftover green beans
4 cups vegetables (celery, onions, fresh spinach, cabbage, etc.)
2 cups rice
Pick your Thanksgiving turkey nearly clean. (Turkey salad is great for a few days, or even turkey pot pies.) We are not real concerned about the choice meat here. Dump the turkey and all of its debris, including the juices, into a large pot. Add water to near top of pan--leave room for the rest.
Add all vegetables and rice, and bring soup to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for an hour or so.
Remove all turkey bones and unwanted debris (i.e., skin cartilage, etc.). There you have it. It's kind of a culinary scrapbook of your Turkey Day.
