Turkey Soup

Ok, I’m ready for some healthy food after a wonderful Thanksgiving feast.  Soup is one of my favorite things to make, and we’ve got lots of leftover turkey…so here goes!

1 tbs Olive Oil

Large clove of garlic, minced

1 medium shallot, minced

2 slices of turkey bacon, chopped into 1/2 inch pieces

pinch of red pepper flakes

1 large carrot, sliced into coins

1 stalk of celery diced fine

4 cups of chicken or turkey broth

Leftover turkey, any remaining skin & bones removed

1 can white beans, rinsed & drained

1/4 cup ditalini pasta

Saute bacon in olive oil until just underdone, add the garlic and shallots and saute a minute or two more until the garlic is fragrant.  Add the red pepper flakes, celery and carrots and saute a minute or two more.  Add the chicken broth, turkey & white beans.  Bring to a boil, then lower heat to simmer.  Add the ditalini and simmer for 30 minutes.

That’s it!  You can add more veggies if you like- sometimes I add baby spinach or greenbeans.  Mushrooms are good to add as well.  Pretty much a low fat, healthy soup- enjoy:)
