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 just made this soup :) it is comforting, delicious and healthy! I love all of the colours. The only things I changed were: I added sage, nutmeg and fennel seed when browning the turkey to give it a sausagey taste, and then I added the coconut milk in at the end with the spinach so it wouldn’t curdle. I also added quite a bit more salt! Such a yummy soup :)

Any thoughts on using Oat Milk? I have allergies too. Thanks!

Hi Tracy,

The tough part about replacing the coconut milk with a different non-dairy milk is you loose the richness from the fat. You could leave out the coconut milk altogether and keep it brothy, or if you're okay with trying out the oat milk knowing it won't be super creamy, my guess is it will still taste great but just won't have as silky of a texture. Hope you love it! xoxo

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