Whenever I hear “vegetable soup” I am transported back to my childhood when my mother would make vegetable soup. Her soup invariably contained Lima beans which I detested. Ergo, vegetable soup has never been appetizing for me.
Since I started my WW journey (again) I’ve had to change up the way of life I had fallen into. I had a habit of eating starchy and calorie-loaded carbs and sweets and now, if I wanted to be successful, I needed to swap out the carbs and sweets for fruits and vegetables.
I adapted this Turkey Vegetable Soup from a WW Hamburger Soup and it was wonderful!
WW TURKEY VEGETABLE SOUP
One pound ground turkey
Chopped onion to taste
One can corn
One can diced tomatoes
2 stalks celery, chopped
2 large potatoes, peeled and chopped into small pieces
Chopped carrots (2 or 3 large carrots or 8-10 baby carrots)
Montreal Steak Seasoning (optional)
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp thyme
1/4 cup Ketchup
3 cups beef broth
Coat the inside bottom of a large stockpot with olive oil. Over medium heat, saute ground turkey with chopped onion and a sprinkle of Montreal Steak Seasoning until turkey is browned. Add the cans of corn and diced tomatoes without draining. Add celery, carrots and potatoes. Add beef broth, ketchup and seasonings. Sprinkle with garlic salt. Continue to cook soup on medium to medium-low heat until vegetables are done. Serve with WW 2 ingredient bagel.
This soup makes at least 6 servings.
The Smart Point value of this soup will depend on the type of ground turkey you use. 99% fat-free ground turkey is 0 points, but regular ground turkey is 6SP for 3 ounces.
Though the WW app I calculated a bowl full of soup at 6SP.
