If you’ve got more turkey or roast chicken leftovers than you know what to do with, you can transform some into a tasty Vietnamese noodle soup that’s perfect for slurping in autumn.
In this video from the ChefSteps YouTube channel, cookbook author Andrea Nguyen shows you how to turn turkey bits into super flavorful broth rice noodles won’t be able to resist bathing in. For the broth, you’ll need some apples, celery, carrots, cabbage, cilantro, onion, crushed fresh ginger, star anise, cloves, coriander seeds, and cinnamon. You’ll also need the turkey carcass, but you’ll have to break it up into pieces and rinse it first. Once the broth is made, you’ll add some leftover slices of turkey, rice noodles, red onion that’s been soaked in water, green onion, and a little more cilantro — then dig in. You can adjust the recipe to suit your own tastes and it works well with roast chicken as well. Or you can follow Nguyen’s complete recipe here.
