Turkey Noodle Soup with Fennel and Lemon

Turkey Noodle Soup with Fennel and Lemon

Soup is the perfect meal to warm you up on a chilly day, and this turkey noodle soup is no exception. The combination of dill and fennel add delicious flavor to the soup, while the lemon adds a subtle citrusy note to brighten up the dish. If you have any leftover turkey or chicken from a previous meal, this recipe is a great way to use it up and create a new and tasty meal.



  • 8 ounces Sfoglini Whole Grain Radiators
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 medium onion, diced
  • 1 small bulb fennel, diced
  • Kosher salt, to taste
  • 1 medium carrot, peeled and diced
  • 1 stalk celery, peeled and diced
  • 1-2 cups cooked and shredded turkey or chicken meat (light and dark)
  • 1 quart chicken stock
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1/4 c chopped dill
  • Freshly cracked black pepper
  • Chili oil (optional)


    Bring a pot of heavily salted water to a boil. Cook the pasta to al dente, according to package instructions. Strain and set aside.

    In a large pot, heat the olive oil over medium-low heat. Add the onion and fennel, seasoning with a small pinch of salt. Cook until the vegetables start to soften, 5-7 minutes. Add the carrot and celery and cook for 5-7 minutes longer, seasoning with a little more salt.

    Add the turkey meat and cook for 2 minutes. Add the chicken stock and lemon. Turn up the heat and bring the liquid to a boil, then lower the heat to a simmer. Simmer for 10-15 minutes.

    Add the pasta and dill and cook for 2-3 minutes more to warm through. Season the soup with more salt and freshly cracked black pepper, to taste. Serve warm with your favorite chili oil or paste (optional).
