Turkey Soup

Simple and classic, yet delicious and satisfying.

turkey bones with meat left on it
4 onions diced
1/3 olive oil
1 small turnip diced ( I think mainlanders call these rutabagas?)
8 carrots diced
2 cans of tomato paste
1/3 cup of brown rice
pepper, paprika, oregen, garlic or other spices as preferred

Boil bones, stirring frequently, until they are clean, remove the bones from the pot.
Add the carrot and turnip, continue to boil and stir frequently.
Sauté onion in olive oil and add to soup, reduce heat to medium. 
Add the tomato paste, spices.
When the veggies are almost cooked through, add the rice.

Tip: About 10 minutes after I add the rice, I turn off the stove, cover the pot and let the heat already in the pot and stove finish the cooking.  That way, I get a break from stirring and can start to clean up the kitchen!
