How to Make It
All you need is a few simple ingredients including some pantry and freezer staples.
Ground turkey. Pre-cook and crumble the meat. If yours renders a significant amount of fat, drain it before adding to the slow cooker.
Vegetable broth. You can certainly use chicken broth or bone broth instead, if you like.
Diced tomatoes. I like to use the fire roasted tomatoes but you can also use the regular diced tomatoes. Make sure to add the juice too!
Onion soup seasoning packet. These mixes are so great to have on hand for adding flavor to any soup, stew, or chili. We typically use Lipton or Knorr brands.
Frozen vegetables. The best mix for this is the green beans, carrots, & corn blend that’s readily available in the freezer section.
White beans. Also known as cannellini beans or northern beans. Drain them through a mesh strainer and give them a good rinse to get rid of the sodium from canning. You could also use chickpeas instead.
Combine all the ingredients in a slow cooker and cook on low for 8-10 hours, or high for 5-6 hours. Sometimes I start the cooking on high for 2 hours and then turn to low when it starts bubbling and boiling, and let it cook for about 4 more hours.
How Can I Thicken my Soup?
This recipe is pretty well balanced, but if you want to add something to it try rice, lentils, small pasta, cubed potatoes, or grains like barley or pearl couscous.
