Happy Friday everyone! Another completed week in the books!

My husband and I have been fighting colds for the past week and so we’ve been living for soup these days. So if you’re not interested in yet another soup recipe, then keep on scrolling. HOWEVER, you may like to have this recipe in your arsenal when you’re really not “feeling it”. This was so easy to cook up while not feeling good, and it made me feel a little better overall after I ate it! So, without further adieu, here we go!

Start by chopping onion and celery, and sauté in your pot with some oil or butter. I’ve been reaching for Avocado oil these days due to its super high smoke point! While it’s cooking, add one to two tablespoons of minced garlic.

Next, add some ground turkey to the mix, and start browning it with the vegetables and oil.

Meanwhile, chop up four to six slices of bacon into smallish pieces (spoiler alert: I use 6 because, BACON!) and fry them in a separate pan.

Once your ground turkey is cooked and browning, add 4-6 cups of chicken or vegetable broth. Then, add one small can of tomato paste. Start stirring.

Then, add 1/4 tsp thyme, 1/4 tsp sage, 1/2 tsp Chipotle Chili powder (if you have regular chilli powder, use that…BUT I’m telling you chipotle chilli powder is the BOMB DIGGITY), 1/4 tsp onion powder, and some salt and pepper to taste.

Finally, once your bacon is cooked, add it to your soup.

Here’s an optional step that I think would have taken this soup to the next level if I had the stuff on hand: toast some bread, butter it lightly with garlic butter, and cut into small cubes to make croutons. Or you can use baguette, or store-bought croutons. Place your croutons on the soup, top with cheese and bake in the oven at 425 for about 10-15 minutes until your cheese is melted and browning.

If you want to keep things low-carb, and don’t feel like the extra step, OR if you’re like me and have zero bread in the house (thank you husband!) then go ahead and ladle your soup in a bowl, top with some shredded cheese and enjoy!

  1. Hi Marcie – It’s getting to be soup weather. This looks good! I’ll have to try one of your recipes sometime.

    This is a weird observation…You must have a ton of different plates and bowls. I browsed through some of your recipes and you seem to use a different plate or bowl each time. Do you plan it that way? They’re cool dishes! I think it’s fun that you do that.

    1. Haha thank you Jason! I do have a lot of different plates and bowls! Definitely not by design on my end (the bowls actually came in a set and they were each different)! Mostly it’s just a hodgepodge of hand me down dishes my husband and I put together when we got married 😅 I can’t bring myself to get rid of perfectly good dishes just to get a “matching” set!
