We know. We know. It's been a month since Thanksgiving, and you still can't face another bite of turkey. But that bird provides some cheap, low-fat protein.

And this time of year, when the weather is chilly and all you want is to cozy up by the fireplace, we've got just the solution: put it in a soup.

Contrasting the comfort food companions usually associated with turkey, the ingredients in this soup provide a sparky switch for your palate. Plus, you can make use of the leftover veggie platter tidbits from holiday parties galore. Waste not, want not.

Total cost per serving: $2.05.
