Instructions

  1. INGREDIENTS:

    1 tablespoon olive oil

    3 cloves garlic, minced

    1 onion, diced

    1/2 teaspoon dried thyme

    1/2 teaspoon dried basil

    4 cups Chicken Broth 

    2 bay leaves

    1 cup uncooked orzo pasta

    2 cups baby spinach

    1 (15-ounce) can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed

    Juice of 1 lemon

    2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves

    1 pound cooked, Seasoned Ground Turkey 

    Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste


    Ground Turkey

    1 tablespoon olive oil

    1 Tbsp of Herbs de Provence

    1 tsp crushed red pepper

    Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

    DIRECTIONS:

    Heat olive oil in a large stockpot or Dutch oven over medium heat. Add garlic and onion, and cook, stirring frequently, until onions have become translucent, about 2-3 minutes. Stir in thyme and basil until fragrant, about 1 minute.

    Whisk in vegetable stock, bay leaves and 1 cup water; bring to a boil. Stir in orzo; reduce heat and simmer until orzo is tender about 10-12 minutes.

    While the orzo is cooking, heat the olive oil in a pan. Added the Ground turkey, Herbs de Provence and Crushed red peppers to the pan. Mix until brown. Drain and set aside.

     Back to the pot with the soup. Stir in spinach, turkey, and cannellini beans until the spinach has wilted, about 2 minutes. Stir in lemon juice and parsley; season with salt and pepper, to taste.

    Serve immediately.  

Recipe Notes

You can make this a veggie soup by substituting the Chicken broth with Vegetable Stock and Ditching the Turkey. it will still be SOOOOOOOO GOOD.
