Why I Love This Recipe

Notes

Substituions for this turkey soup recipe:

Can you make a creamy turkey soup? Sure! Stir in 1/4 cup heavy cream or coconut cream once it has cooked to make this recipe a creamy soup.

Turkey Noodle Soup Recipe: Just add cooked noodles to the soup when you’re ready to serve for turkey noodle soup

Spicy Turkey Soup: If you want some spice, add 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes to the soup as it’s cooking

Broth: We used homemade bone broth in this recipe, but you can use chicken stock or whatever broth you have on hand.

Add ins: Quinoa, Brown Rice or Noodles all work in this recipe. You can also add zucchini noodles

Zucchini Noodles: For best results, I recommend adding the zucchini noodles to the bowl instead of adding to the slow cooker pot. This way your zucchini noodles/spinach won’t get soggy if you eat leftovers. You can also sub pasta for zucchini noodles.

WW Freestyle Note: This can be 0SP if you use spray to sauté your veggies instead of pouring olive oil into the pan.

Veggies: You can add peas, potatoes or even spinach to this recipe!

Herbs – I like to add in a little chopped fresh rosemary and a bay leaf to this recipe – but you can use whatever herbs you like!
