Ingredients:

  • 1 lb. lean ground turkey (optional)
  • (1) 32 oz. container of chicken broth
  • (1-2) 14.5 oz. cans of chicken broth
  • 2 cups of gluten free pasta (something small like elbows)
  • (2) 14.5 oz. cans of kidney beans (drained and rinsed)
  • (2) 14.5 oz. cans of diced tomatoes
  • 1 large onion (diced)
  • 40 oz. mixed frozen vegetables
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp dried basil
  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme

Directions:

Cook pasta according to package directions.  (Note: If you’re planning on freezing the soup, make the soup and wait to make the pasta until you’re going to eat the soup. Gluten free pasta tends to break up and kind of dissolve after being frozen, especially when reheated.)

At the same time, saute onions and brown turkey meat in a pan. Transfer into a large stock pot, add all ingredients (except pasta), and simmer for 20 minutes. When ready to serve, add pasta and stir through.

 

Enjoy!
