White Bean Turkey 'Soup'
1 large onion, chopped
5 cloves of garlic, minced
1 tablespoon fresh sage
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
a pinch of red pepper flakes (or more if you like it spicy)
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1 tablespoon flour
1 lb. ground turkey meat
1 can cannellini beans, drained
1 can pinto beans, drained
1 can great northern beans, drained
3 cups chicken broth
salt and pepper to taste
1. Add the chopped onion to 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Add salt and pepper to taste and mix well.
Here are the 5 garlic cloves that I used. If you do not like garlic as much as me, you could most definitely use less!
2. Mince the garlic cloves.
3. Add the garlic to the onion mixture and mix well. Add salt and pepper to taste.
4. Add the sage, nutmeg, cinnamon, oregano, red pepper flakes, and cumin. Mix well.
5. Add the flour and mix well.
6. Add 1/4 cup of the chicken broth. As you mix it, the mixture will begin to thicken.
7. Drain and rinse the beans.
8. Add the beans to the onion mixture and mix well.
9. In a separate pan, cook the turkey meat. Add salt and pepper to taste and stir well until all the way cooked through. (about 8 minutes)
10. Add the rest of the chicken broth to the bean mixture.
11. Add the turkey meat to the chicken broth and beans.
12. Mix all of the ingredients together.
13. Put a lid on the soup and let it simmer for about 20 minutes so that all of the flavors incorporate together.
Here is the final product! I added a little basil pesto to the top of mine... I am saving that recipe for tomorrow! Enjoy!
Until next time...
