You can easily create a vegetarian version of this soup by using vegetable stock instead of chicken and omitting the turkey. Did you recently stock up on fresh carrot and celery sticks for your guest to dig into? Well after the ranch dip is all gone, this soup is a great way to repurpose your remaining veggies.
