Gluten Free Living – 2017
Crockpot Gluten Free Turkey Noodle Soup is one of my favorite ways to use up leftover turkey. (Or chicken for that matter). I cooked off our turkey carcass after Thanksgiving so I had a couple of gallons of broth along with a lot of turkey I wanted to use up. I ended up making four different soups with our leftovers from Thanksgiving, including Turkey Corn Chowder, Turkey Vegetable Soup and this delightful recipe. I added some vegetables and Ronzoni’s new gluten free spaghetti noodles.
I’ve tried a LOT of gluten free products over the past three years and this is by far the best noodle version I’ve had. Many of them are so starchy that they cook up with a lot of sludge when you boil the noodles. Plus they just don’t taste all that great. But these noodles are so much better tasting that even my husband doesn’t realize he’s eating gluten free when I make them. (Usually he will avoid any kind of GF pasta because he doesn’t like the taste).
Ronzoni uses a mixture of rice, quinoa and corn. If you use only corn flour, the noodles are sticky and tough. If you use only rice flour the noodles are starchy and just don’t taste all that great. So now any time I want to use a noodle in a recipe, I usually try to find one that Ronzoni makes. I made a Gluten Free Macaroni and Cheese with their noodles about a month ago and they turned out terrific.
The wonderful thing about this soup recipe is you make it in the crockpot. You don’t have to do an excessive amount of prep work like some recipes. If you don’t have leftover turkey or turkey broth, simply substitute leftover rotisserie chicken and chicken broth instead.
If you’re looking for a fantastic soup recipe that’s gluten free and made in the crockpot for ease and convenience, I can’t recommend Crockpot Gluten Free Turkey Noodle Soup enough. I made a large pot and was able to have this soup as leftovers for lunches for several days afterwards. It was sooooo good.
