Anything & Everything Soup
Now that the cold has set in, what better time to make some warm and cozy soup! The beautiful thing about soup is that it can be the most nutritious breakfast, lunch, and dinner if you put the right items in it Plus it’s easy to store in a mason jar and take with you to work throughout the week. Eating greens are must, i.e collards, kale, mustard, turnip, etc…this soup will have everything you need to get in all your micronutrients, fiber, protein, and good carbs without sacrificing flavor. The down side of soup is the sodium content. But our bodies need quite a bit of sodium, so go low sodium wherever possible and for the truth of the matter if you drink your 96oz of water daily and sweat when you workout your sodium will balance itself The can sizes maybe a little off but most vary between 12-16oz. Now enough chatting, recipe time!
1 32oz can of low sodium diced tomatoes
2 16oz cans of black beans
2 16 oz cans of great northern beans
1 16 oz can of corn
1 16 oz can of low sodium collard greens
1 16 oz can of low sodium mustard greens
1 16oz pack of organic ground turkey
1 packet of beef onion soup mix
1 low sodium chicken bouillon cube or powder
Rinse off all your beans and corn thoroughly and then put them into your pot. Add in the canned tomatoes, collards, and mustards (do not drain). Start cooking your vegetables on low and get your ground turkey started. Season your ground turkety with salt, pepper, cumin, paprika, chili powder, onion powder, and garlic powder. I’m old school, so I don’t measure my seasonings, I season to taste. Always remember to season lightly because you can always a little bit more but it’s hard to take away. Now if you over season just add a little water to cut the taste. Once your turkey is done which takes only about ten minutes add it into the pot with your vegetables and be sure to get all the seasonings out of the skillet. Now add your beef onion soup mix and chicken bouillon to the pot with 2 cups of water. Cook on low for another 15-20 minutes and season to taste with the same seasonings you used for ground turkey if necessary. This soup was supposed to last my wife and I through the week and it only made it 2 days, needless to say it was quite tasty! I hope you enjoy yours the same.
P.S I wish I could’ve posted a picture before we ate it all, so please post yours!!!
