Cream of Turkey Soup

62 Easy Soup Recipes To Cozy Up To This Fall (7)

It’s not what you’re thinking. Campbell's cream of chicken soup is NOT playing any role in this recipe. Any soup labeled "cream of'' might trigger the idea of a broth-based soup thickened with a roux and cream… that’s about it. If you’re lucky, there might be some pieces of chicken hanging out in there, but good luck. We’ve decided that cream of turkey soup wouldn’t have that reputation. Instead, it’s going to be a warm wholesome soup with celery, carrots, poblano chiles, shiitakes, and bits of turkey (maybe with those Thanksgiving leftovers?!).

Tomato Soup
