This has to be the easiest soup ever to make. It's like beef stew but subbing out the beef for ground turkey. I started making this when I cut back my beef intake. I don't add potatoes which makes for a very satisfying healthy low carb meal. I've found that extra lean ground turkey tends to be chewy and doesn't absorb the sauce and spice very well so I use regular ground turkey. You can use chicken, beef or veggie broth and any additional veggies that you like.
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 1⁄3 cup chopped celery
- 1 onion, chopped
- 1 lb ground turkey
- 4 cloves of minced garlic
- 1 teaspoon pepper
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1 (14 ounce) can stewed tomatoes
- 1 beef stew seasoning (I use McCormick's)
- 3 cups water
- 1 cup beef broth
- 2 zucchini, quartered and chopped
- 2 squash, quartered and chopped
- 3 -4 carrots, chopped
- 1⁄2 cup frozen corn
- 1 cup frozen cut green beans
- Heat olive oil in large pot and saute onions and celery until translucent, about 5-7 minutes.
- Add ground turkey and season with salt and pepper, add the minced garlic.
- Brown until no longer pink while stirring and breaking up large chunks of meat, drain well and return to pot.
- Add stewed tomatoes with juice along with remainder of ingredients.
- Bring to a boil, cover and simmer for an hour 1/2 or until veggies are soft.
I substituted cabbage for the zucchini and chicken broth (one without preservatives) for the beef broth. I felt healthy eating it and the taste was great, leaving a satisfied feeling.
