This soup has been a long time favorite in my family. I picked up this recipe when I lived in Germany. It’s yummy, warm and doesn’t cost a whole lot to make. I usually double this and we have it the next day for lunches.
Ground Turkey Vegetable Soup and Cheese
1/2 – 1 pound Ground Turkey
2 Onions, chopped
4 cups water (I’ve used Chicken, Beef and Vegetable broth for all or part of the liquid- great way to finish up open containers in the fridge)
1 can (29 ounces) or 1 quart canned tomatoes
5 medium potatoes, washed and cubed (small red potatoes are good…and easy!)
3 large carrots, cleaned and sliced thick (half some baby carrots for a time saver)
1 teaspoon salt
1 bay leaf
2 cups (8 ounces) Monterey Jack or other cheese, cubed.
In a large stock pot brown ground turkey with onion, Add water, tomatoes, potatoes, carrots, salt and bay leaf. Simmer, partially covered, until vegetables are tender, about 45-60 minutes. Just before serving, sprinkle cheese cubes on top.
