Step 1

Start by first of all peeling, and rinsing vegetables: potatoes, and carrots. Cube the potatoes after rinsing them once. Then, slice the smaller half of each carrot and grate the larger end. Set aside until ready for use.

Step 2

Into a large cast iron pot or Dutch oven on a stovetop add water, 3 bay leaves, and ½ tsp. of sea salt. Bring it to a boil. Reduce the heat to low, and add cubed potatoes, and sliced carrots.

Step 3

Also, add leftover Thanksgiving turkey meat, and chicken bouillon and let it simmer for 10 minutes.

Step 4

While the soup is simmering sauté the carrots. To do this, heat a small frying pan over medium heat, and add shredded carrots, 1 tbsp. of olive oil, salt, Mrs. Dash seasoning, and garlic salt to it. Sauté for 5 minutes stirring every minute or so.

Step 5

Now add sauté carrots to the soup, and well-rinsed rice as well, and let it simmer for 10 more minutes. Then add parsley and dill.

Step 6

Once done, remove the soup pot from the heat and let it rest for 20 minutes before serving. Your delicious Leftover Turkey Soup is ready to be served in bowls for a hearty combination!

Step 7

Next, spread a teaspoon of homemade mayonnaise on each slice. For the second option of topping, combine cream cheese, pressed garlic, and salt. Spread a thin layer of the mixture on each bread slice.

Step 8

Place a piece of smoked salmon on each slice of bread on top of the cream cheese or mayonnaise. Then place a slice of cucumber on top of the salmon.
