Creamy Ground Turkey and Vegetable Soup - dairy-free, paleo, whole30 healthy soup recipe

How to Make Hearty Ground Turkey Soup with Vegetables:

Heat a dutch oven or large pot over medium heat and add the chopped bacon. Cook until much of the fat has rendered, about 2 to 3 minutes.  Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until translucent, about 5 minutes.

Scoot the onions off to the side of the pot and add the ground turkey (or sausage). Brown for 2 minutes, flip, and brown another 1 to 2 minutes. Use a spatula to chop the meat into smaller pieces.

Add the remaining ingredients except the spinach to the pot, cover, and bring to a full boil. Reduce the heat to a gentle boil and continue cooking 20 to 30 minutes, until potatoes are cooked through. Stir in the spinach and cook until wilted, about another 2 to 3 minutes.

Serve the soup with your favorite gluten-free sandwich bread or cheese and herb Irish soda bread, and enjoy!

I slimmed it down a bit by adding lite coconut milk and pureeing some of the broth and potatoes. Still tasty.

Really enjoying this recipe after making it for the first time. I added fresh thyme and bay leaves. I substituted a large turnip for the potatoes as I am following the AIP diet. I also added mushrooms : ) Thank you for this!

Have you tried to make this recipe in a crockpot? If so, do you throw all the ingredients in? Also, I am still in the challenge phase of my Low fodmap, and I noticed you used onion. Any alternatives?

This was really good. I was worried that it would need some seasoning, but no. To cool it off for my daughter, I poured a bit of evaporated milk in it at the table. It was so yummy that I added a little to mine, too. I also experimented with a dash of turmeric; that was perfect.
