Welcome to my latest recipe in the Soup Maker and today we have a delicious soup maker turkey and ham cream soup. It combines a delicious combination of 2 different types of meat along side 2 different types of cheese for the perfect hearty winter soup.
I love my meat and I love my cheese. These are 2 of the best things in my diet and I would be lost without both of them.
Yet once upon a time I was a vegan. Yes I am not kidding I was a full on vegan that refused to eat anything that had anything to do with animals. I lived and breathed animals and all I wanted to do was look and touch them.
I had watched lambs being born, walked family dogs, thought cats were incredibly cute and had an obsession with cute ducks at the park.
However I met Dominic and with him being a chef, he hated everything about vegetarian cooking, vegan cooking and before you could blink I was back to cooking minced beef lasagne again.
Though I do sneak in some vegan meals every now and again and I just get the same old lecture:
“Where is the cheese?”
“This is missing something”
And when he says that second one I just know he is talking about cheese 🙂
So this recipe is for when I am fancying my meat and cheese. It is very flavoursome and takes me as far away from my old vegan days as I can get. Oh and did I mention that it is made in less than 10 minutes thanks to the soup maker?#Soup Maker #Turkey & #Ham Cream #Soup #Recipe via recipe_thisClick To Tweet
The Soup Maker place the turkey breast meat, ham, chicken stock and cook on the chunky soup setting for 28 minutes. After 5 minutes stop the soup maker by lifting it up.
Take the lid off, reduce the stock by half (I find with a ladle works best) add the rest of the ingredients and blend.
Serve with croutons.
Because the meat is already cooked you are really using the soup maker as a warm up rather than a cooking machine. Therefore put it on for chunky soup as usual and then manually stop the soup maker after 5 minutes.
I used a chicken OXOcube with 250ml of warm water to make my chicken stock. I used this over turkey stock as it gives a good balance for the turkey and ham.
