Remember all those leftovers we had from the Stuffed Turkey Peppers from last night’s dinner?
We had a small tupperware full of cooked ground turkey, cherry tomatoes, wild rice, and other goodies. I didn’t have to wonder long what to do with my pepper stuffing leftovers.
I decided to turn my pepper stuffing leftovers into a simple soup for lunch today. I gathered up the leftovers with some swiss chard from yesterday’s Farmer’s Market visit along with some low sodium chicken broth.
I brought the broth to a boil and added the turkey stuffing, which promptly disappeared into the broth. I knew I needed to add something else…
…so, I rinsed up a can of kidney beans and added those to the pot.
While the broth had been heating up, I triple-washed my swiss chard and tore the leaves into smaller pieces. After adding the beans, I added the swiss chard and cooked it down for about 4 minutes.
Lunch was as simple as that!
I love finding a good way to morph good leftovers into delicious, new eats!
Have you ever made stuffed peppers and had leftover stuffing? What did you do with yours?

throw it on a salad or in a wrap 🙂
I too love taking a bunch of leftovers to create random, yummy dishes!! this soup is genius!!!
When I make stuffed peppers (only ever used beef, will try with the turkey!) I use the leftover filling to stuff in a wrap for lunch the next day.
