They call me soupy... because I like soup.

Ok, so the soup I just made is delish (even though it will feed an army.)


2 cans of cannelini beans (drained. One can blended)
1 can dark red kidney beans (drained)
14.5 can fire roasted diced tomatoes
1/2 package of ground turkey
red pepper flakes
green chile sauce
portabella mushrooms (sliced)
fresh okra sliced

In large dutch oven/large pot put in olive oil and then saute the onion until tender. Add garlic (I'm leaving the amounts open... I used a small yellow onion and 4 cloves of garlic.) Then add chopped celery and cook about 8-10 minutes. Add red pepper flakes (again, I didn't measure) Then add the ground turkey and cook until done.

Pour in fire roasted tomatoes, beans, blended beans, mushrooms, okra, and green chiles.
Pour in about 3-4 cups of water.

I let it cook for about an hour on low and then tore up the kale and let it cook an additional 15-20 minutes.

Ok, and seriously this makes an ass ton of soup. I may have forgotten some things I'm not sure because it came from my head.

look at you, Chefy McCheferson! This looks like a delicious soup, and really really healthy, too. It's hard to make just a little bit of soup.

Have you ever tried throwing a parmesan cheese rind in the soup? I add it with the veggies, and then let it stay in with the simmering liquid until I'm ready to serve. It gives a really great flavor... makes it feel a little indulgent when no calories were added.

This is something I appreciate about you Cate... your ability to see something and add cheese and deliciousness. I'll try it next time!
