Crock Pot Turkey Bone Broth
2 small or 1 large yellow onions
5 celery stalks
4 garlic cloves
6 cups bone broth
1 tsp of thyme
1/2 tsp of rosemary
1/2 tsp of sage
1/4 tsp celery seed
2 bay leaves
1 tsp of sea salt
1/2 tsp of black pepper
1.5 lbs of cooked turkey meat
Peel the carrots. Dice carrots, celery, and onions. Add to the crock pot. Mince the garlic and add to the crock pot. Cover with the bone broth. Add all spices and mix thoroughly.
Cover and cook on high for 3 - 4 hours or low for 5 - 6 hours, until vegetables are tender. Add turkey and cook for another 30 minutes to warm the turkey and allow it to absorb the flavors. Taste and adjust spices to your liking.
If desired, cook gluten free pasta when you add the turkey to the crock pot. I recommend quinoa pasta or brown rice pasta. I don’t like cooking the pasta in the crock pot because if you have leftover soup, the pasta doesn’t heat up as nicely, so I always cook the pasta separate and add to each individual serving.
