Select ingredients:


  1. Heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the onion, carrots and celery and cook for 5-7 minutes or until softened.
  2. Add the potatoes and turkey to the pot and cook for 1 minute. Season with Italian seasoning, plus salt and pepper to taste. Add both cans of corn, chicken broth and milk. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Divide into bowls to serve.

Substitute: Feel free to substitute leftover ham, rotisserie chicken or shrimp for the turkey for a delicious variation. Or for a vegetarian option, substitute with 2 (15 oz.) cans of your favorite beans.
