In recipe #54 I posted how I made the broth from the leftover roast turkey from Christmas.

I made 2 kinds of soups using the broth and meat from the leftover turkey:

The one at left is Elbow Macaroni Soup (entry #54) and on the right is Arozz Caldo.

Here's the recipe for the AROZZ CALDO:
2 Tbls. olive oil or canola oil
2 cloves garlic, chopped fine
1 medium onion, chopped
1 cup glutinous rice
ginger, sliced
12 cups turkey broth (or chicken broth)
salt and pepper to taste
green onions for garnish
1) In a large SOUP POT, heat the oil and saute the chopped garlic until fragrant but not browned.
2) Add chopped onions and saute until they are transluscent.
3) Add the glutinous rice (rinse rice first) and continue to saute;
4) Season with salt and pepper.
5) Add in the meat and ginger, if the mixture starts to get dry up add a little broth and continue to saute about 5 minutes.
6) Pour in the broth and simmer until rice is tender and soup has thickened.
1) I used ginger about twice as big as my thumb.
2) Let me remind you that in my recipe, the turkey has been fully cooked that's why I did not have to saute the meat real well until tender.
3) When using fresh meat, like chicken, you need to saute until the meat renders its own fat or clear juice comes out of the meat before adding in the broth.


  1. I didn't know you're Pinay. From where? I'm from Novaliches, QC, came here back in 1987. I will so visit this site again for some delish Filipino dishes. I love gulays, esp. upo, and sitaw! Is there a good Asian market where you are?

  2. Hi CC, yes Pinay na Pinya ako from Dagupan City, Pangasinan. There are about 3 Asian markets that we go to. Do your your in-laws in Utah like Filipino Food?
    I like the way you put the hymns in the background of your blog page. I need to find out how to do that.
    Thanx again!
