Turkey Noodle Soup Ingredients & Notes
- Butter: Helps the vegetables brown without burning. If you prefer, swap it for your favorite cooking oil.
- Vegetables: I love a ton of vegetables in my soups, so I use carrots, celery, onion, and mushrooms. Feel free to use as much or as little as you like!
- Seasoning: Garlic and sage pair wonderfully with turkey, so I add them to the soup for a little extra flavor! If you don’t have fresh, use 1 teaspoon garlic powder and ½ teaspoon dried sage. Bay leaf adds great depth of flavor and earthiness to the soup. Just make sure to take it out before serving.
- Stock: Chicken stock gives the soup great flavor. I recommend using a good quality, low sodium stock.
- Turkey: This is a perfect recipe for leftover roasted turkey. Smoked turkey would also be delicious.
- Noodles: Egg noodles are always a classic addition to soup, but elbow or ditalini noodles would also work!
- Turkey should be fully cooked before adding it to the Instant Pot. Do not use uncooked turkey in this recipe.
- Store leftover soup in the fridge up to 3 days. If you want to keep it longer, store it in the freezer.
- You can substitute cooked shredded chicken in place of the turkey if you prefer.
- The key to cooking pasta in the instant pot is to cook it for half of the time on the box. The egg noodles I use traditionally cook in 7 minutes on the stovetop, but in the Instant Pot they take about 3 minutes.
What’s the best turkey to make Instant Pot Turkey Soup?
You can use any kind of turkey you like for this this recipe, as long as it’s cooked. Simple, savory flavors will work best in this soup. Turkey breast works well, but you can use dark or white meat.
If you aren’t starting out with leftover turkey, you can cook some to use in this recipe. I recommend this Instant Pot Turkey breast recipe for an easy option.
