Creamy mushroom turkey soup for nights when your kitchen feels small

Print this recipe
This leftovers soup is deceptively simple to make, and perfect if your kitchen is feeling crammed with stuff, or just generally lacking in counter space. If your local supermarket sells some carrot and celery sticks, or pre-peeled garlic cloves, even better! You can also do the chopping in sections, for instance chopping the mushrooms while the onion and garlic cook, so you don’t need to set things aside, which means less counter space, chopping board space and dishes required.
In fact, even if you mess up the timing a bit, the flavor of the parmesan rind and sautéed mushrooms will hide a multitude of sins. So if you’re looking for a recipe that fits in your kitchen, no matter its size, this is a great one to try.
