Nothing beats the convenience of some thoughtful meal prep, my freezer is loaded with my favorite soups for the upcoming chilly season, and I couldn’t be happier about it. 

Using Homemade Chicken Stock

Whenever you make homemade soup, I highly suggest using homemade chicken stock. I promise, your cooking will taste ten times better.

Remember that you can always freeze leftover chicken carcass/meat and make chicken stock on a day when you have time! No defrosting necessary!

Freezing Leftovers

This soup is excellent for freezing since it doesn’t contain a creamy broth.

Spinach Substitutes

Feel free to toss in some fresh kale, green beans, or Bok Choy (Asian cabbage),  instead of spinach if preferred.

Ground Turkey Substitutes

Ground beef or sausage are also similar meats that are  great in this soup. You can even do a combination of several meats.

For ultimate convenience, you could dice up a rotisserie chicken as well.

Ingredients

  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoon minced garlic
  • ½ cup diced yellow onion
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • Salt/pepper, to taste
  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • ½ teaspoon thyme
  • 2 cups fresh spinach
  • 15.5 oz. Cannellini Beans, drained/rinsed
  • ¼ cup Parmesan, shaved, to garnish

Instructions

  • In a large soup pot or dutch oven, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onions and garlic and cook until they are soft and translucent, about 5 minutes.
  • Add the chicken broth to the pot and bring to a light boil.
  • Season the raw turkey with desired amounts of salt and pepper. Drop them into the broth in bite-sized pieces. You can roll them neatly or just drop in pieces.
  • Add in the lemon juice and thyme, and let the soup bubble gently for about 15 minutes
  • Reduce the heat to medium-low. When you’re ready to serve, add the spinach and Cannellini beans and simmer until the spinach is wilted, about 2 minutes.
  • Top each bowl with Parmesan cheese if desired and serve! (This soup is delicious with crusty bread!)
