Low-FODMAP Creamy Leftover Turkey & Potato Soup

Low-FODMAP Creamy Leftover Turkey & Potato Soup  /  Delicious as it Looks

I'm excited to share with you that I have been named a Top 50 Low-FODMAP Blog! It is an honor and a badge I will proudly wear. I have to thank you, all of my readers, for keeping me working, even when my energy is low. I so enjoy all of the emails and comments I get. It's very encouraging and gives me the motivation to keep going with this blog. Thank you so very much for reading and trying my recipes and giving me feedback!

Speaking of feedback, I got accolades from my husband for making this soup recipe. I adapted it from a recipe I found several years ago on Genius Kitchen (formally known as Turkey Soup Recipe. We had this for our lunches the week following Thanksgiving this year. It's very warm and hearty. I like to thicken it up a bit with some gluten-free flour, making it very creamy and filling.

The crackers featured in the photos are Gluten-Free Table Crackers from Schar. They are very much like soda crackers (or saltines). I enjoy crackers and some cheese with this soup. Whether you are making it for lunch or dinner, I'm sure you will enjoy it too.

Creamy Turkey & Potato Soup
Low-FODMAP, Gluten-Free
serves 4


2 teaspoons butter
2 teaspoons FODY Food Co. Garlic Oil
1 cup thinly sliced carrots
1 rib celery, thinly sliced
1 bunch scallions, thinly sliced (green parts only)
3 cups Low-FODMAP Chicken Stock (made using turkey bones)*
2 cups diced cooked turkey
2 cups diced potatoes
1 teaspoon salt*
1 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon dried crushed rosemary
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 cup lactose-free milk (I used 2%)
2 tablespoons gluten-free flour
1 - 8 oz. jar sliced button mushrooms, drained
fresh parsley for garnish

  1. Melt butter and garlic oil together in a large stock pot or Dutch oven over medium heat. Saute the carrots, celery and scallions in the butter and oil until softened.
  2. Add the stock, turkey, potatoes, salt, basil, rosemary, and pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 15 minutes.
  3. Whisk the gluten-free flour into the milk, stirring until there are no lumps. Add the milk mixture and mushrooms to the pot and bring back to a simmer. Cook until the soup is thick and bubbly and the potatoes are tender, about 5 minutes more.
  4. Serve garnished with parsley, if desired.

*Don't have any stock made? Just use FODY Food Co. Chicken Soup Base. However, be sure to omit or reduce the salt since the base already contains salt.
