Leftover Turkey Noodle Soup

A super quick and easy camping meal, this Turkey Noodle Soup is great for leftover turkey. If you love this soup, you can also prepare the fresh turkey and make the meal from scratch. This dish is both kid and grown-up friendly and perfect to warm you up on a cold day.

The star of this soup is the noodles. Ramen noodles are already a favorite of outdoor cooks for their short cooking time. This quick cook time gives a preference over longer cook versions like spaghetti or fresh Asian noodles that can be difficult to carry.

The vegetables selected for this soup are onions, celery, and carrots. Sometimes camping you need to use what is on hand, so leeks, potatoes, garlic, and parsnips are all possible substitutes that would make an equally tasty soup.
