big meal of the weekend: turkey stoup


I’m pleased to announce my first official Big Meal of the Weekend: Turkey Stoup

I just gracefully burnt my tongue on this incredibly healthy and satisfying creation. What is stoup do you ask? A hybrid soup/stew. Here’s what you need:

1lb ground turkey

Lots of hearty veggies: 1/2 to 1 cup of the following: onion, green beans, carrots, celeri, spinach, potato

1 jalapeno, diced

1 can pinto beans

Low sodium chicken broth

Can diced tomatoes

1 tbsp diced garlic

Start by browning the ground turkey in a splash of EVOO. Chop all the veggies into stew-sized pieces. In a stew pot, heat a generous amount of EVOO and add garlic, jalapeno, onions, green beans, carrots, potato, celeri. Hold spinach for later.

 

When the turkey is finished browning, put to side. Let the veggies sautee  for about 10 minutes. Then, add 1 cup diced tomatoes and 3 cups broth. Rinse and drain the beans, add. Stir in the cooked turkey and a handful of fresh spinach leaves. Optional: 1 tsp ground cumin. Add sea salt/pepper to taste.


Bring to a boil and let simmer, checking every 10 minutes. Let it cook until the potatoes look soft, but not falling apart like above. Serve alone or with a piece of whole wheat bread. Enjoy!
