Turkey Avgolemono Soup

This classic lemon orzo Greek soup traditionally made with chicken is a great option for leftover Thanksgiving turkey. It’s creamy, light and bursting with lemon and dill for freshness.

I feel very un-American saying this but usually white, creamy soups freak me out. Pretty sure it all traces back to a long ago run in with a can of cream of mushroom soup that I thought you just ate as is not realizing you’re supposed to add water. I gag a little just thinking about that.
