I just made this recipe and it tastes quite nice. I found that I needed a full 32 oz of stock because the sweet potatoes drank it up and I wanted it to be a soup rather than a stew. I, too, could not find escarole and substituted kale which worked fine.

I used a 32oz box of broth, a full teaspoon of rosemary, more turkey, and a can of rinsed and drained cannellini beans. Yum!

Soup is definitely good food! I made a fantastic turkey chili with my leftovers. Visit me at my website: http://moreismoremom.wordpress.com/2010/11/25/spicy-thanksgiving-turkey-chili/

This soup is fantastic and it is a great way to use leftover turkey. The ingredients are uniquely different than what I normally put in vegetable soup; we really enjoyed it. I had enough leftover to take for lunch tomorrow....can't wait!

Escarole is not an ingredient that is readily available where I live in southern Missouri. What would be a good substitution?

I would also like the nutritional information as it would make it so much easier for those of us who have to count carbs to give insulin!!
