Turkey Veggie Chili Soup
I invented this lovely mild chili soup a couple of days ago and re-made it tonight. If you like chili-flavoured things, then you can add as much chili powder as you would like. My version is very light tasting.
400g ground turkey
1 can (796ml or 28oz) diced tomatoes (I use Unico brand "Italian Flavoured")
1 large carrot, chopped into half-coins
3/4 tsp chili powder
2 cups boiling water
1 cup frozen or fresh peas
1 cup frozen or fresh corn
- Brown ground turkey on medium heat, season with black ground pepper and a dash of salt, set aside.
- In soup pot, bring can of tomatoes to a boil. Add carrots, cooked turkey, chili powder, and water, stir well.
- Put lid on and bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer until carrots are almost cooked.
- Add peas and corn and cook until they are done (approximately 4 minutes).
- Eat. YUM!
This would also be good with other seasonal vegetables, such as green and yellow beans, potatoes, etc. Would be good with pasta or rice.
