Michelle`s Top Healthy Thanksgiving Leftover Recipes
Turkey Salad with Warm Clementine Dressing from the ever down to earth Jamie Oliver (rocket is arugula for those who aren`t familiar with the term).
Turkey Tortilla Soup - I just got back from Palm Springs where I ate AH-mazing Mexican food daily and have a definite hankering for the warm flavours now that the rain has set in back home. Tortilla soup is an approachable intro for those who aren`t big bean or spice eaters. Just dial them up or down to suit your taste.
Turkey Cobb Salad - a great take on a classic, filling meal of a salad
Chunky Turkey Vegetable Soup - a nice and easy soup from Martha herself, if you can`t find escarole substitute any hardy green with a touch of bitterness such as arugula, kale or even bok choy.
Turkey Con Chilli - another great recipe from Jamie Oliver. Don`t be intimidated by the longish ingredient list, most of it will be found in your pantry or any grocery store. Chili freezes beautifully so make a big batch and freeze the leftovers if you`re getting tired of turkey day in and day out.
Chicken Posole - just substitute leftover turkey for chicken in this gorgeous, warming dish. Can you tell I`m craving soup yet? Stay warm, friends and happy Thanksgiving!
You can also shred leftover turkey for tacos, dice and freeze it, make turkeys salad sammies or just enjoy a good old fashioned plate of leftovers.
