Ground Turkey Soup Recipe

Ground turkey is an ingredient that’s easy to find in most grocery stores. However, I’ve found that grocery store ground turkey is a bland version of what I can get from a local farmer. If you haven’t tried ground turkey direct from a farmer yet, you’re missing out! If you don’t have ground turkey on hand, this recipe is also good with leftover roast turkey from holiday cooking.

How to Make a Delicious Soup

An original version of this soup that I made didn’t include the egg noodles or any carbs at all. When I fed it to my family for the first time, they suggested that egg noodles would go great in this soup, so this recipe was born! If you don’t have egg noodles, another pasta or white rice could substitute. Since the soup is so simple, be sure to use a good quality chicken or turkey broth (homemade is good). I find that the lemon juice is really key for giving this soup a “zing” of flavor. Also, be sure to add the Herbes de Méditerranée at the beginning of the recipe as directed, as this will help “bloom” the herbs and give the best flavor to the soup.
