Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    1 lb ground turkey
    2 tsp onion powder
    1 tsp basil
    3 cups chicken broth
    1 cup each of frozen brocolli, fozen cauliflower
    1/2 cup frozen carrots (I just used a large bag of premixed veggies)
    1 1/2 cups fat free half and half
    8 oz shredded cheddar cheese

Directions

This makes about 8 large soup bowls

Brown ground turkey and drain off any fat. Return to a large pot/dutch oven and add onion powder. Brown a little longer to flavor the meat. Add chicken broth, basil and frozen veggies. Bring to boil and simmer covered about 20 minutes until the veggies are tender.

Add in FF half and half and then the shredded cheese. Take off heat and stir until cheese is melted. DO NOT return to heat or cheese will separate and not look creamy and pretty. (will still be edible, but clumpy).

So many vegetable/cheese combinations to use. Have fun!

You can garnish with sour cream

    This was delish. I used ground beef and beef broth instead of the half n' half with a 1/2 C of skim milk. I also used a bag of california blend veggies and added 2 Tbsp. of cream cheese. I substituted because I didn't have the half n' half. - 1/11/11

    I loved this soup, too. I used ground beef, and added half an onion, a few more fresh veges, such as celery, peppers, and added the cheese after serving. Forgot to add the milk, but still scrummy. I blended it a little, too. - 9/29/09

    This was great, but I would've used half as much meat and twice as many vegetables. Will do that next time. Delicious! - 9/2/08

    Has anyone tried freezing this - 7/22/08

    I wouldnt freeze it as your cheese would separate. You could freeze up to the point where you add cheese/cream. Then gently reheat and add your cheese/cream.

    I made this tonight for dinner. It did not look appealing and also looked to have too much basil. I changed my mind after eating this. This is so delicious. - 7/16/08

    I followed the recipe to the letter and the cheese didn't dissolve in the half and half at all. It just stuck to the ground turkey pieces. The soup was thin and tasted terrible. I'm hit and miss with this web site so far. - 1/9/13

  • I used a vegan cheddar cheese which took a little while to melt but tasted really good. I also used carrots and beans since my husband can not eat the broccoli. - 4/18/12

  • Delicious taste. Could have been thicker. I think I might blend half of it next time to get more thickness. I used grass-fed ground beef and substituted a sauteed chopped onion for the onion powder. I also substituted raw heavy cream for the half and half. - 10/24/11

  • This was pretty good, but I found myself wanting it to be a bit thicker. Next time I'm I'll try adding some pureed beans and see how that goes. - 6/26/11
