Loaded Turkey Veggie Soup (Zero points)

Ok, as soon as you’re done reading this recipe, you need to grab your crock-pot and a pan and make this soup! TRUST ME. It’s a delicious and filling Zero point meal that anyone can love.

Yes, I know that’s a bold statement to say that ANYBODY will love it, but I’ll tell you this, my husband ate a big portion of it. Needless to say it didn’t last long before it was all gone.

I came up with this a few days ago when I was craving a really good wholesome soup, so I had to get it up for you all to try ASAP.

And you wanna know what makes it even better?? It’s made with most ingredients we already have in our kitchen.

Directions:

  1. In a pan over medium heat cook up ground turkey until no longer pink.
  2. While turkey is cooking, dump all other ingredients into your crock-pot.
  3. Once turkey is fully cooked, dump into crock-pot, stir to combine, cover and let cook on high for about 3-4 hours (this will allow all the flavors to combine beautifully).
  4. Serve in a bowl paired with your favorite low point bread and you got yourself a meal you can feel good about eating. (point value varies with bread, but I used Dave’s Killer Bread for 2p/ slice)
