Turkey Kale Soup

I’ve been eating this simple (yet super flavorful) soup all week and it’s been hitting the spot on these cold cold days we are having here in Boston.

This soup is packed with protein and veggies and the perfect dinner meal, starter, or a nice light lunch! So many of you are on Whole30’s and 21DSD’s this month, so I am bringing you all sorts of compliant meal ideas!

    • You haven’t added when you cook the turkey…no big deal we can figure it out but just wanted you to know. Also..question….what do you do when after you eat you crave something sweet? Do you have something on hand always?

    • I love you! I just came from Lee @ Fit Foodie Finds blog and looked at your Foodgawker gallery and it’s absolutely ridonkey!

      I love

      I’m doing the Whole30 right now with a bunch of peeps in my FB group and we’re loving it. I’ll share the recipe with them! Yay. Looking forward to more! x

    • I just made this tonight, and it has good flavor, but mine is not red like the picture. Making me wonder if I am missing an ingredient like maybe tomato paste? Renee

    • Just finished dinner and had to comment! This soup was incredible. I was skeptical at first – figuring it was just another turkey + veggie soup – but, wow did it impress. I used two cubes of Trader Joe’s frozen basil while browing the turkey and added two more cubes while the soup wa simmering. I also used the entire 14.5 oz can of diced tomatoes. Other than that I followed the recipe to a ‘t’. My husband loved it as well. We can’t wait to make it again!

    • Made this for hubby and me and had dinner for two nights. This was so filling and delicious! He is super picky and loved it, too! Thank you!

    • Just an fyi: this recipe is technically not low fodmap as it contains onions and garlic which are two big foods to avoid due to being high fodmaps. Also contains quite a bit of celery which one also needs to limit if following low fodmap.
      store bought broths can also contain onion and garlic so have to watch out for that too.
      recipe looks yummy though even if you omit these ingredients

    • As a new cook, this recipe was tough for me. No indication of what level of heat to cook it over, burned the garlic twice, how big a pot, etc.
