Got some extra leftover turkey hanging around from family dinner? Don’t box yourself in with a boring leftover turkey sandwich meal.

Turn that leftover turkey into something special with the help of Randall Beans!

Got a 48-oz. jar or two of Randall Great Northern Beans stocked up in your pantry? Use beans, shredded leftover turkey and some turkey stock (bonus points if it is homemade!) as the foundation for this delicious turkey soup that is perfect for winter.

Full of other healthy ingredients like spinach, carrots, onions, garlic, sweet potato and herbs, this recipe is perfect for beating the cold of winter and fighting off the flu or the common cold. Moms: this one is perfect for sick kids!

This is also a great soup recipe to prepare in a slow cooker or just keeping low and slow on your stove top. The longer it cooks, the longer all the ingredients have to meld together, the better it will taste. That means it will be good the day after too.

Turkey gets a tough reception as a leftover meal. It doesn’t have to be as long as you have a great recipe to use it in. Makes 8 to 10 servings, so take some across the street to your neighbors too. It’s winter, it’s cold. Why not spread a little love?
