Hearty Gluten Free Turkey Soup

On a cold winter’s day a good hearty, gluten free turkey soup is an American tradition. If you’re watching your weight, choose the white turkey meat, if there’s any left. Otherwise, the dark meat has more flavor, and is what is really needed in a soup. Without enough flavorful meat, salt is the main ingredient that brings the flavor to to any soup recipe. So, after Thanksgiving, kick back and wrap yourself in a nice warm blanket (weather permitting), and enjoy!
