Guest blogger KyLynn Hull shares a simple and tasty recipe for hearty mushroom and leek soup.

You can add or vary the vegetables as you prefer. SERVES 4

• 1 1/2 pounds turkey wings, neck and back bones

1. Combine first 5 ingredients in a Dutch oven. Cover and bring to a boil over medium heat;  reduce to medium-low. Cook 30 minutes and skim off foam that rises to the surface.

2. Reduce heat to low and simmer at least 2 hours. Remove from heat and cool 30 minutes or until room temperature.

3. Pour broth mixture through a colander into a large bowl, discarding bay leaf and orange peel.  Remove meat from bones, chop meat and reserve for soup. Discard bones.

4. Combine onion, carrots, ginger juice, turkey meat and turkey broth in a Dutch oven. Bring to a boil over medium heat, reduce heat and simmer until vegetables are tender. Season with salt and sprinkle with parsley.
