Immunity-Boosting Ground Turkey Soup with Turmeric and Ginger

Immunity-Boosting Ground Turkey Soup with Turmeric and Ginger is creamy, tangy, hearty, and filling! This comforting soup is full of Thai flair and helps protect your immune system.

Looking for a clean and easy recipe that aids in protecting and boosting your immune system? Look no further! 

This protein-packed Immunity-Boosting Ground Turkey Soup is filled with antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and fiber. During cold and flu season (or let’s face it – pandemic), it is especially crucial to pay attention to your body’s ability to fight disease. 

One great way of ensuring your immune system stays functioning at an optimal level is to eat clean real food that is low-inflammatory. Aim for meals that mitigate versus cause inflammation, are low-carb and full of protein, healthy fats and fiber.

Avoiding any additional load on your immune system ensures your body stays strong so that in the event you do become sick, you recover quickly. 

Why is This an “Immunity-Boosting” Recipe?

I consider this ground turkey soup to be a nice little boost to your immune system because it is:

  • Low-carbohydrate and low-inflammatory
  • Contains anti-inflammatory ingredients like turmeric, ginger, carrot, and broccoli.
  • Packed with healthy protein, which is easy to digest, keeps your body strong, and punches down your inflammation.
  • Full of fiber – your digestive system needs a great deal of fiber to properly eliminate food. Ensuring you’re consuming enough fiber is a surefire way of achieving regular bowel movements. Healthy bowel movements are essential for your overall health.

If you’re a lover of Thai food, soup, and/or ground turkey, you’re going to go bonkers over this easy coconut soup recipe! it contains ingredients found in a classic Thai soup (like Tom Kha Gai), such as coconut milk, ginger, fish sauce, and lime juice, resulting in a lovely creamy soup with a Thai twist. YET, this coconut soup isn’t by any means a traditional Thai dish.

This soup is otherworldly delicious and so quick and easy to prepare! It fits the mold for a clean eating, paleo, keto, and/or whole30 lifestyle. PLUS, it can be made in a huge batch for those of you who enjoy meal prepping or serving guests.

How about we make it together? 

How to Make Immunity-Boosting Ground Turkey Soup:

Heat the oil in a dutch oven or large pot over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and saute, stirring occasionally until softened and translucent, about 3 minutes. 

Add the ground turkey meat and sear for 2 minutes without touching. Flip the meat and sear another 1 minute. Use a spatula to break the turkey meat into smaller pieces. 

Add remaining ingredients, stir well, and cover. Bring soup to a full boil, then reduce to a simmer. Cook 10 to 20 minutes, until vegetables have softened and turkey is cooked through. 

Taste the soup for flavor and add more lime juice, fish sauce, and/or sea salt to taste.

Hi Lisa,

I kept the recipe mild as I know many people don't enjoy spicy food, but I highly encourage you to add peppers and/or chilis if you like them! Hope you love the soup!! xoxo
