Crockpot Turkey Noodle Soup

There's nothing like a bowl of mom's noodle soup.... Normally, she makes her recipe on the stove top with homemade noodles! I decided this week to try it in the crockpot for a quick, delicious meal.

Mom's Homemade Soup ... Crockpot Style

Slow cook rice, handful
Barley, handful
Carrots, sliced (about 1 C)
Celery, sliced (about 1 C)
Onion, diced (about 1/4 C)
4 C chicken broth (I usually end up using 6-8 C -- because I make a bigger batch)
1 C cooked turkey
1 C dried whole wheat egg noodles

In a crockpot, combine broth, carrots, celery and onion. Cover and cook on high for 1-2 hours.

Add barley, rice and cooked turkey and reduce crockpot to low. Cook an additional 3-5 hours. About 1 hour before serving, toss in a heaping handful of egg noodles*. You should be able to toss everything in the crockpot in the morning (minus the noodles) and allow it to cook all day rather than adding ingredients in stages.

*Alternatively, you can cook the pasta on the stove top and toss in before serving.

  1. Yummy! I love homemade soup. I am not feeling good this week and have had trouble finding things that I am able to eat so today I was glad to remember I had homemade turkey soup in the freezer. It is such a comforting meal.

  5. Oh I love soup and this one is so close to the chicken soup I make in the crockpot, I'll have to definitely give it a try :)

  6. Do you use regular brown or white rice? Should I cook it first or just put it in the crock pot and let it cook that way? Can this soup be frozen?


Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear from you; especially how you're finding JOY in your kitchen.
