Turkey Sweet Potato Minestrone Soup
With the colder weather, I’ve been craving soup lately. So I made one of my favorites, a recipe I got from my Mom (who makes the best soups!). It’s healthy, filling, and super easy to make. It made a perfect post-ride lunch today!
Sweet Potato Turkey Minestrone Soup
- 1 lb ground turkey*
- 1/2 cup diced onions
- 1/2 cup diced carrots
- 3.4c thin sliced celery
- 3 cups chicken broth (or water)
- 2 cups diced, peeled sweet potatoes
- 28oz canned tomatoes (undrained and chopped)
- 15oz can great northern beans (drained and rinsed)
- 1 tsp dried oregano
- salt & pepper
- 8 cups spinach (chopped)
Combine turkey, onions, carrots, and celery in a large pot (or dutch oven) over medium-high heat. Saute for 7 minutes or until turkey is browned.
Add the 3 cups of chicken broth/water, sweet potatoes, tomatoes, beans, oregano, salt and pepper.
Bring to a boil, cover, and reduce heat. Simmer for about 30 minutes.
Stir in spinach, cook an additional 2 minutes.
*For a vegetarian version, replace ground turkey with another can of great northern beans (or beans of your choice)
