Turkey Vegetable Soup – ground turkey, mixed vegetables, beef broth and brown rice – ready in under 30 minutes. Leftovers are great for lunch and it freezes well. My husband gobbled this up! I’ve already made it 3 times this month!!
I’ve made this Turkey Vegetable Soup a couple of times this month. It is SO good and actually pretty good for you too. BOOM! This soup has tons of great things in it! Ground turkey, tomatoes, mixed veggies, corn and rice. It has lots of great flavor. We like to eat it for dinner and again for lunch the following day. I freeze any leftovers for a quick lunch or dinner later in the week/month.
I made a few little swaps to the recipe. Ground Turkey instead of ground beef, lower sodium beef broth and brown rice instead of white rice. I actually preferred the swaps. I can’t imagine that it would taste any better with the “regular” ingredients.
This is totally going in our regular lunch/dinner rotation!
