So hey, here I am a Minnesota blogger and I have no Wild Rice Soup on my blog. Uff da. Well, I do have a Wild Rice and Smoked Turkey Chowder (amazingly good and healthy!) but it’s just not the same as a Classic Wild Rice Soup in the Instant Pot, now is it? (As a quick aside, I will be posting recipes that aren’t Instant Pot and aren’t soup, it’s just been a crazy Holiday week, so if you don’t have an “IP” please bear with me!)
Thanksgiving is just around the corner, so I decided to make a Shortcut Pho Ga Vietnamese Chicken Noodle Soup. And now, I’m sure you’re wondering “What on this side of heaven does Pho Ga have to do with the Great American Turkey Day?” Ahem. Thanksgiving, that is.
I don’t know about you, but I love, love, love me some Chicken Tortilla Soup. Or some Turkey Tortilla Soup. OK make that ANY Tortilla Soup. Just put it in front of me and I’ll eat it – no questions asked.
When the idea of making a Ramen with my Homemade Turkey Stock and a little leftover Thanksgiving Turkey entered my mind, I just couldn’t let it go. I mean seriously I was just under the grip of this cray cray idea. So of course, I started with google and I found the idea of Turkey Ramen is not without precedence. Is there nothing “new” in the world of cooking?
I don’t know when the thought popped in my mind to refashion my turkey leftovers into Pozole, but I’m glad it did. And this is not just any old Pozole but a Green (Verde) Pozole with Turkey. Pozole Verde de Pavo.
