  • Changed up the veggies to match what I had on hand. I'm pretty sure the sodium level is related to the turkey stock they used. There may have been salt added to the turkey before I bought it, but I did not salt it and my stock was from the turkey that we cooked for Thanksgiving. Quite tasty. - 11/28/11

  • I ran this through a recipe analyzer and came up with 282 calories per serving BUT only 688mg sodium. I bet with a few tweaks I can get the sodium down a bit more. The other counts were more or less the same. I am giving this a try tonight but I think it sounds good.

    (Later: This soup was a HIT! - 1/6/11

  • I made this soup with a few small changes. I used only a couple sprays of olive oil. I used fat free, low sodium chicken broth. I used spinach instead of broccoli (add near end) and I added a couple more veggies that I happened to have. It came out great! Will definitely make again! - 11/12/09

  • I don't understand why the sodium count is so high. Otherwise it looks like a good, healthy recipe...unless that sodium is correct, in which case, I'll pass. - 4/9/09
