Chunky Turkey-Vegetable Soup

Source: Everyday Food, January/February 2007


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 large sweet potato (about 12 ounces), peeled, quartered lengthwise, and thinly sliced
  • 1 can (14.5 ounces) diced tomatoes with juice
  • 1 can (14.5 ounces) reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried crushed rosemary
  • coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1 pound cooked turkey breast, cut into bite-size pieces
  • 1 small head escarole (about 8 ounces), trimmed, leaves torn into bite-size pieces and washed well


  1. In a large saucepan with a lid, heat oil over medium. Add onion and garlic. Cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in tomato paste.

  2. Add sweet potato, tomatoes and their juice, broth, 1 cup water, and rosemary; season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, and reduce to a simmer. Cover; cook until potato is tender, 12 to 15 minutes.

  3. Stir in turkey; add escarole in two batches, waiting for the first batch to wilt before adding the second. Cover, and simmer just until turkey is heated through. Season with salt and pepper. Serve.

    I just made this recipe and it tastes quite nice. I found that I needed a full 32 oz of stock because the sweet potatoes drank it up and I wanted it to be a soup rather than a stew. I, too, could not find escarole and substituted kale which worked fine.

    I used a 32oz box of broth, a full teaspoon of rosemary, more turkey, and a can of rinsed and drained cannellini beans. Yum!

    Soup is definitely good food! I made a fantastic turkey chili with my leftovers. Visit me at my website:

  • fmr 22 Jan, 2009

    I thought this soup was great - had wonderful flavor and is fairly healthy.

  • rcravey 21 Jan, 2009

    This soup is fantastic and it is a great way to use leftover turkey. The ingredients are uniquely different than what I normally put in vegetable soup; we really enjoyed it. I had enough leftover to take for lunch tomorrow....can't wait!

  • LisaMarie1972 20 Mar, 2008

    This is really good. I use whatever greens I can find. I also server it over any type of little pasta.

    Escarole is not an ingredient that is readily available where I live in southern Missouri. What would be a good substitution?

    I would also like the nutritional information as it would make it so much easier for those of us who have to count carbs to give insulin!!

  • kkt 4 Jan, 2008

    Agreed, we need nutritional info if this is being marketed as a way to eat healthy.
