Creamy Corn and Leftover Turkey Soup

Thanks to store-bought broth and shredded roast turkey, this 5-ingredient soup couldn’t be easier. The canned creamed corn adds a subtle sweetness to the broth, and it thickens the soup without the need for cream. Have some rotisserie chicken leftover from last night’s dinner? Feel free to use it in place of the turkey. And don’t go out of your way to prep an extra ingredient for a garnish. Top each bowl with celery leaves (you’ll have some on hand from the chopped celery in the soup) and freshly ground black pepper to make this simple supper look dinner-party ready.
