I discovered this absolutely delicious recipe a short time ago. Best of all, it's a great way to use your leftover turkey or chicken.


  • 1 pint turkey stock (homemade preferably)
  • 1 cinnamon stick, broken in half
  • 3 large, whole cloves
  • 1¼ cups coconut milk
  • ½ lime
  • Approx 2 TBSP fish sauce (optional, but recommended for full flavor)
  • 2 handfuls fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 2 handfuls scallions, chopped
  • 2 handfuls fresh turkey breast, sliced fine
  • 1 handful fresh mint, chopped
  • A couple jalapeño peppers, sliced (include seeds for more heat; exclude for milder heat)
  • 1 handful of mung bean sprouts
  • Few lime wedges


  1. Pour turkey stock into In medium soup pot.
  2. Add in cinnamon stick halves and cloves.
  3. Pour in coconut milk.
  4. Squeeze in lime juice. Stir.
  5. Over medium-low heat, bring up to a simmer. Simmer 30 minutes to allow flavors to infuse.
  6. Add in fish sauce and stir.
  7. Remove cinnamon sticks and cloves from soup.
  8. On a serving plate, arrange cilantro, scallions, turkey, mint, jalapeños, bean sprouts and lime wedges. Be creative with it; add whichever veggies you like. Each person can make their own soup bowl up, choosing their favorites, adding them to their bowl, then pouring hot soup over top.
  9. Ladle hot soup into each soup bowl, over chosen veggies.
  10. Add a squeeze of lime and serve.

Serves about 2
