Super healthy Turkey, Bean and Veggie Soup


This is so “adapted” that I’m calling it my own at this point, even though it started out from a pin 🙂

  • 1lb ground turkey
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 4-5 carrots, peeled & diced
  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 bunch kale, ribs removed, roughly chopped
  • 1 tbsp Herbs de Provence
  • Salt + Pepper to taste
  • 1 can butter beans drained and rinsed

Saute onion and carrots in a tbsp of olive oil in a large pot about 5 minutes. Add ground turkey and cook through until mostly white. Add all seasonings except salt & pepper and mix until combined. Add broth, water and beans and cover and allow to simmer for 10 minutes.

Add kale and simmer for another 10 minutes. Add salt & pepper if desired after tasting.

Since I had grabbed the low sodium, organic broth I did end up adding salt & pepper rather generously. however, this being my first attempt at using kale I must say I was pleasantly surprised and how nice it tastes after cooking!

Also, for a Monday night dinner, this was not a problem at all given how lazy I can be 🙂 Sure, there was some chopping but not too much and the fact that it all ended up in one pot to wash always makes me happy. The flavors blended quite nicely too.

And? The teen liked it! Even with all those healthy, leafy greens!!
