  • Filling and comforting, yet easy on the digestive system

Let’s whip it up!

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!

Recipe Adaptations:

  • Add ⅓ cup white or brown rice.
  • Omit the potatoes for low-carb
  • Omit the onion for low-FODMAP
  • Omit the bacon and use 2 Tbsp avocado oil if you don’t have bacon on hand
  • Add sun-dried tomatoes or artichoke hearts

    Oh my! I worried that this didn’t have any spices for flavor, but that was definitely not a problem. I made this to fit a low fodmap diet. It’s spectacular! I used leftover turkey from a breast. Now I may skip the turkey and go straight to the soup. Thank you!
