This is the perfect soup to use up some of that leftover turkey from the holidays.
3 cups leftover turkey, chopped
8 cups turkey or chicken broth
1 can (12 ounce) evaporated milk
1/2 cup flour (To make this Gluten Free, substitute 1/4 cup of cornstarch for the flour)
2 large potatoes, peeled and cubed
2 stalks celery, finely chopped
1 medium onion, finely chopped
4 carrots, sliced
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon thyme
1/2 teaspoon sage
Bring turkey broth to a boil in a large pot.
Add potatoes, carrots, and celery, and cook for about 15 minutes, or until potatoes are almost tender.
Add turkey, onion, salt, pepper, thyme, and sage, stir well and return to a boil. Reduce to medium and simmer for another 5 minutes.
While soup is simmering, mix evaporated milk and flour or cornstarch in a mixing bowl with a whisk until thoroughly blended and no lumps remain.
Blend milk mixture into soup. Cook, stirring constantly for the first 2 minutes, then occasionally, but gently until thickened (about 8-10 minutes).
