{NEW} Fast + Healthy Tuscan Soup 🌱🍅🥔🥣

With a few simple swaps, we’ve made our favorite restaurant-style Tuscan soup MUCH healthier!

Here’s how we did it!

➡️Ground Turkey instead of Italian Sausage
➡️Add lots of garlic, red pepper flakes, and fennel seeds to mimic that sausage flavor
➡️Minimal amount of healthy oil instead of a half stick of butter
➡️Bone broth for added protein instead of conventional bouillon
➡️Added fresh kale or spinach
➡️Option to use non-dairy milk if you choose

Like most soup, it’s even tastier the next day, so make a double batch!

makes 6-8 servings
Ingredients:

  • 1.5 lbs ground turkey
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil, or avocado oil
  • 1 sweet yellow onion, diced
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1/2 tsp fennel seed
  • 1/8-1/4 tsp red pepper flakes (depending on your heat preference)
  • 4-5 fresh garlic cloves, pressed
  • 4 medium Russet potatoes, peeled and chopped into small cubes
  • 1/4 cup chopped sun-dried tomatoes
  • sea salt and fresh ground black pepper
  • 6 chicken bone broth, or vegetable broth, or water
  • a large handful of baby kale, or baby spinach, ribs/stems removed
  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut milk (preferred), almond milk, or grass-fed cream
  • a large handful of fresh basil, chopped
  • a small handful of fresh parsley, chopped

Heat oil in a large stock pot, then cook your ground turkey until almost browned, about 4-5 minutes.In that same pot with your cooked meat, stir in the onions, oregano, fennel seeds, red pepper flakes, garlic, sun dried tomatoes, and a tiny pinch of sea salt and pepper, then cook for a few minutes more, stirring frequently until the onions soften.Add in the potatoes and broth, reduce heat and bring it to a simmer.Cover your pot and continue to simmer until potatoes are tender, about 15 minutes more, then add kale or spinach, stir, and turn off heat.Allow to sit, covered for 5 minutes, then gently stir again.Finally, with your stock pot completely removed from heat; add in the milk, basil and parsley. Give everything a big gentle stir. Taste and season your soup with sea salt and pepper if desired. Allow to cool a bit before serving. Even tastier the next day, so make a double batch!

Enjoy!
