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 cornbread, gluten-free sandwich bread or cheese and herb Irish soda bread, and enjoy!

Want to change things up to put it on repeat but keep it fresh? Here are some ideas.

Recipe Adaptations:

  • Add ⅓ cup white or brown rice.
  • Leave out the potatoes for low-carb (or replace them with cauliflower).
  • Skip the onion to make the recipe low-FODMAP.
  • Omit the bacon and use 2 tablespoons of avocado oil if you don’t have bacon on hand.
  • Add sun-dried tomatoes or artichoke hearts.

I'm inspired to try more of your recipes! This was very tasty! I found your site after searching for an extremely easy soup recipe with ground turkey. I really didn't feel like cooking today, but your recipe seemed so quick and easy I figured I could do this, plus I HAD to do something with that package of ground turkey I had thawed out yesterday. I just happened to have the other ingredients on hand (used frozen green beans in lieu of zucchini). The coconut milk really changed things up! Definitely not a dairy cream, but definitely a nice addition to a soup. Thank you for the inspiration! - LJ, Anchorage, AK

Your blog has changed my life, lol! I have never found so many great recipes in one place. I share with all my friends! This soup is fabulous! I swapped kale for the spinach because that’s what I had and I didn’t put in the coconut milk. I’ve made so many of your res in a row and don’t want coconut in every thing I eat, haha 😂. I thought of adding oat milk for some creaminess but the soup holds it own without. Thanks for your hard work!

How long will this hold up as leftovers? Wanted to make a pot and eat for lunch everyday this week. Curious if it is still good after being in fridge for 5 days?? Thanks
