Turkey Meatball & Potato Soup

Turkey Meatball & Potato Soup

Serving size, 8

This recipe is Whole 30 and Paleo friendly, just lose the Parmesan garnish and bread suggestion. Be sure to read the label on your fire roasted tomatoes for added sugars and unnecessary ingredients! Enjoy this hearty fall soup.

From the Cutting Board:

Paleo OMG turkey meatball recipe (I doubled Julie’s recipe)

  • 2 pounds of ground turkey
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp fine sea salt
  • 2 tsp dried oregano
  • 2 tsp dried basil
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes

    Soup
  • 3 carrots, diced
  • 6 stalks of celery, diced
  • 1 yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 head of purple kale
  • ½ zucchini diced
  • 1 can fire roasted tomatoes, do not drain 
  • 2 boxes chicken broth
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 3 yellow potatoes
  • 3 red potatoes 
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 2 bay leaves 
  • 1 sprig of fresh rosemary, chopped
  • 1-2 tbsp olive oil
  • Fresh basil & Parmesan for garnish

To the Soup Pot:

Start placing all ingredients for the meatballs in a large bowl and mix until well combined. Scoop a heaping spoonful of the meat mixture and mold into a ball shape with your hands. Once all the meat balls are shaped, add a little olive oil to the bottom of your soup pot (or a separate frying pan) and brown the turkey meatballs for 3-5 minutes. Remove the meatballs and add your mirepoix of carrots celery and onion to the pot. Add more oil as needed, sauté until the onions become translucent. Once the mirepoix is complete, add in your 6 potatoes and garlic and continue to cook, about 2 minutes. Stir in the chicken broth, kale, zucchini, tomatoes. Bring to a boil then reduce heat and add back in the turkey meatballs, Italian seasoning, chopped rosemary and bay leaves. Let the soup simmer for 30 minutes. Check to make sure the meatballs are cooked and potatoes are tender and continue to cook an additional 15 minutes if needed.

Serve with a warm loaf of rosemary olive bread and a side salad. My Winter Harvest Apple Salad accompanies this dish perfectly!

 

Enjoy!!
