Turkey, White Bean and Spinach Soup

There’s nothing I love more than a hearty bowl of piping hot soup.

I’ve made this soup a couple of times and it keeps getting better!

The turkey adds a great flavor and texture, plus tons of lean protein, and I added in extra spinach, plus some Kale and chopped tomatoes.

At the very end, once I turn off the heat, I add in the juice of half a lemon. It gives the soup a nice tart punch of flavor!

Here’s the recipe:

Enjoy!

 

 

*Turkey is low in fat (without the skin), containing only 1 gram of fat per ounce. It’s full of folic acid (great for women, especially if pregnant), B vitamins, zinc and potassium, which are all nutrients that aid in keeping blood cholesterol down and help boost the immune system.

For this recipe, I used Jennie-O Extra Lean Turkey.

*Spinach is high in fiber, vitamins C and E, beta-carotene (also found in carrots), manganese, zinc and also contains flavonoids, a phytonutrient that has anti-cancer properties. The high amount of vitamin A promotes healthy skin by allowing for proper moisture retention and the high amount of vitamin K is beneficial for bone health and contributes to a healthy nervous system. Spinach is completely versatile and can be added into soups, sautéed, eaten raw and even thrown into your favorite smoothie!

*The white beans add in a creamy texture to the soup while also providing some extra protein and fiber! Plus, white beans are extremely low in calories!
