Cheap and Healthy Cold-Weather Family Recipes: Meals from Thanksgiving Leftovers

Soon your family will be gathered around the table for a big turkey dinner with all the trimmings. It's one time of the year when one single meal contains literally thousands of calories. Even after stuffing yourself fuller than the turkey, you'll still probably have leftovers. What do you do with them? Thankfully, you can use those leftovers to create meals that aren't so loaded with fat and calories.

Turkey Stock

1 turkey carcass
3 carrots, broken in half
3 large onions, cut into quarters
3 stalks of celery, broken in half
1 head of garlic, sliced in half lengthwise
Fresh cracked black pepper
Sea salt

1. Place the turkey carcass and vegetables into a large stock pot.
2. Fill the stock pot with water to cover the carcass and vegetables.
3. Season with pepper and salt and simmer for 3 to 4 hours over low heat.
4. Cool for 10-15 minutes and then strain the stock.
5. Refrigerate the stock or freeze for later use.

Tip: When freezing homemade stock, always reheat to a boil and taste the stock before using to determine freshness.

Turkey Tortellini Spinach Soup

1 batch of homemade turkey stock
2 packages of fresh cheese tortellini
4 cups of leftover turkey breast, cubed
2 large packages of fresh spinach, washed
Fresh cracked pepper, to taste
Parmesan cheese, optional

1. In a large soup pot, heat the stock to a boil, add the tortellini, and cook the pasta according to the package directions.
2. A few minutes before the pasta is finished cooking add the turkey.
3. Before removing the soup from the heat add the spinach and season with the pepper.
4. Serve the soup topped with parmesan cheese and a side of crusty bread.

Instead of continuing to consume thousands of calories the day after Thanksgiving, why not try cut the fat and calories and enjoy the delicious soup listed above?
