JD Farms Turkey Minestrone Soup
A filling, healthy, easy to make soup, that you can make any time.
2 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
2 lbs. JD Farms mixed ground turkey
1 large onion, diced
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 stalks celery, diced
1 large carrot, diced
½ lb. of mushrooms, sliced
1 tbsp. JD Farms blackening or Cajun seasoning
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
2 – 28 oz. cans diced tomatoes
6 cups JD Farms turkey broth
4 cups vegetable broth
1 -15 oz. can white kidney or cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
freshly grated parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
Heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Cook the turkey, breaking it apart as it cooks. When the turkey is almost fully cooked, add the mushrooms & onion, cook until the mushrooms start to brown and the onion is translucent, about 10 minutes. Add the garlic, celery and carrot and cook until they begin to soften, about 5 minutes. Stir in spices, salt and pepper to taste; cook 3 more minutes.
Add the diced and crushed tomatoes and the broth to the pot and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium low and simmer 15 minutes. Stir in the kidney beans and cook just until the vegetables are tender, about 10 more minutes. Re-season as necessary. Ladle into bowls and top with the parmesan cheese and chopped basil.
