Pumpkin Turkey Soup
This comforting cold weather soup is filled with creamy pumpkin and savory turkey. Doesn’t get cozier than this!
If you’re making this after your big holiday meal, feel free to use shredded, roasted turkey instead of raw, ground turkey. Simply chop the shredded, roasted turkey and add in the last 10 minutes of the cooking time. Enjoy!
