Turkey Soup With Cheddar Dumplings
Leftover Turkey Recipes
Not your usual turkey soup.
-1 tablespoon olive oil
-4 carrots, cut in half lengthwise and thinly sliced into half-moons
-1 onion, diced
-3 3/4 cups homemade or low-sodium canned chicken stock
-1 cup all-purpose flour
-1/3 cup yellow cornmeal
-1 teaspoon baking powder
-3/4 teaspoon salt, plus more for seasoning
-1 cup grated cheddar cheese
-3/4 cup frozen corn, thawed
-1 large egg
-1/3 cup milk
-3/4 pound cooked turkey, cut into 1-inch cubes (about 2 cups)
Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add carrots and onion. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes. Add stock and 2 cups water; bring to a simmer. Cover, and cook until vegetables are just tender, 8 to 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, combine flour, cornmeal, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl. Stir in cheese and corn. Add egg and milk; stir vigorously to make a slightly sticky dough. Using lightly floured hands, form dough into 1-inch balls; set aside.
Add the turkey to soup; season with salt and pepper. Bring to a gentle boil; add dumplings. Cover; cook until dumplings are cooked through, 5 to 6 minutes. Serve warm.
