Turkey Vegetable Soup

Here’s a hearty soup recipe made with ground turkey, added vegetables, tomato, beans and spices:  Turkey Vegetable Soup

Turkey Vegetable Soup

I like this soup because it’s pretty hearty with all of the veggies packed into it.  The ground turkey adds the protein element to the soup.  And kidney beans add to the bulk of it too.

Chili powder and cumin give the soup nice flavor.

If you are following the Weight Watchers plan, this soup counts as ZERO Freestyle SmartPoints and then you can count the cheese as extra points if you decide to sprinkle it on top.  I suggest you go for it and add the cheese on top!

This is a great, healthy soup to eat as comfort food on a chilly day.  It’s also nice to eat for lunch since it’s quite filling too.

    I don’t have a Dutch oven, can this be made in a large stockpot instead? Or a slow cooker/instant pot? Any help is appreciated!

      yes, a large pot would be just fine.

    I’m new to WW and the points program. What would the points be if you added the cheese?

    The recipe looks yummy! Thank you for sharing. 🙂

      It depends on the cheese you decide to use. You’d need to look up the point count for the cheese you’re using!

    This recipe does not make sense.  The ingredient list says 6 cups of beef or chicken broth but in the directions is says to add 3 cups.  Which is it?  Also, the ingredients have a lot listed that are not included in the directions.

      Hi Lori, sorry– I just edited this yesterday and made an error. Just add all the broth (not 3 cups!). The instructions says to add the broth and the remaining ingredients… so that includes everything. Sorry for the confusion.
