  • 1/2 teaspoon poultry seasoning
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 3 cups cooked shredded turkey
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tsp parsley dried


  • Combine potatoes, celery, carrots, onion, garlic, chicken broth, salt, pepper, poultry seasoning and bay leaf in your crockpot.
  • Cover and cook on high for 4 hours or until vegetables are tender..
  • Uncover and measure out approximately 2 cups of soup (be sure to avoid bay leaf,) and transfer into a blender*.
  • Puree briefly until ingredients are mostly combined.
  • Return pureed soup to crockpot and add shredded turkey, heavy cream and parsley. Stir well, cover, and cook on high for another 30 minutes.

Pureeing a portion of the soup will give it a thicker texture, but this is not required.
