Left Over Turkey Curry Soup

Put all that leftover turkey to good use in this tasty soup. It’s quick and easy to make and is loaded with color and flavor thanks to red curry paste, carrots, peppers, mushrooms, and snow peas. Fermented pastes are absolute must in a kitchen. They gives us great umami flavors and bring tastes from around the world. The cabbage is optional, but gives a lovely crunch. Let the soup sit a few minutes once you have fully prepped the bowls. And of course soups always taste best the next day…so save some!

1 serving = 3 oz. pro, 2 fats


1 tablespoon avocado oil

2 medium shallots, thinly sliced lengthwise
