Turkey and Red Peas Soup with Black pepper and Thyme biscuits is a great day after holiday meal.

Comfort food comes in many forms and this Turkey and red peas soup is one of them.

After making my White wine Braised Turkey legs I was left with two massive leg bones. Waste is something I try to avoid as there are always ways to utilise left overs so after a daily video call with my parents back home, the idea of soup was formed.

Without a doubt, I enjoy fusing Caribbean influences into my dishes because the flavors are always fresh and inviting and its a piece of me of course.

This soup consists of a turkey leg bone and meat, left over stock, red kidney beans (known to us as red peas), vegetables, herbs and coconut milk.

The Red peas soak up all that turkey flavor making them plump and meaty. Also the combination of robust turkey, fragrant herbs and creamy coconut milk are heaven!

In addition to a side of Black Pepper and Thyme Biscuits and its a wholesome meal on a cold winter night.

First, place turkey bones and meat, water and Red Kidney beans in a large pot on a medium high heat and bring to a boil, adding more water as needed. Allow the Turkey meat to soften and bone to come down nice and soft.

Next, when the kidney beans are soft toss in the herbs, vegetables and seasonings and continue to boil on medium heat.

Lastly, once the vegetables have become tender, pour in the coconut milk and butter. Stir ten let simmer until well combined.

• Use any vegetables or meat for this dish. Chicken or lamb will also pair well with these flavors.
`• This can easily be made vegetarian or Vegan. Omit the meat, add more vegetables and a quality Vegetable stock.
• I personally like Maggie flavor cubes and vegetable stock cubes, however you can just use 1 Stock base to keep it simple.
