    20 oz pkg Lean Ground Turkey (Jeanie-O)
    Cooking spray
    1 medium onion, chopped
    1 medium red bell pepper, chopped
    1 jalapeno/serrano pepper (seeds removed) minced
    6 cups water
    3/4C dry (uncooked) chickpeas/garbanzo beans
    2C water
    1/2 cup red wine
    1 tablespoon roasted garlic powder (or regular)
    1 tablespoon roasted ginger powder (or regular)
    2 tablespoons sodium free chicken bouillon
    4 cups butternut squash, peeled and cubed (bite sized)
    4 cups collard/mustard/kale greens, shredded
    4 tbsp cilantro, minced


1. Spray a soup pot or dutch oven with cooking spray. Add the turkey, onion, hot pepper and bell pepper and cook until the turkey is cooked through and the peppers and onions are tender, about 8-10 minutes. Remove to a bowl, cover and refrigerate.

2. Pour the 6C water into the pot and scrape up any stuck bits. Add the chick peas and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, cover and cook about 1.5-2 hours, or until chickpeas are tender.

3. Stir in wine, 2C water, ginger, garlic, bouillon, butternut & greens, bring back to a simmer and cook about 25 minutes or until butternut is tender.

4. Stir in cilantro and cooked turkey and heat through, about 5 minutes. If you stir vigorously, some of the butternut will mash and make the soup creamier!!
