My Mom worked long hours so I needed to supply myself with lunch. We always had canned soup, American cheese and sliced boiled ham on hand. My favorite canned soup consisted of noodles and hamburger. I know, but I was only about 12 then. I hadn’t developed tastebuds yet! ;) I chose this time and that memory because it was my coming of age time. A time to start gaining independence. A time before having grownup responsibilities. I was allowed to use the stove when my Mom wasn’t home! It was the start of my interest in cooking for myself. Here is my healthier version of a ground meat soup. Lean ground turkey replaces fatty beef. Fat free, low-sodium broth gets enhanced with vegetables.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound lean ground turkey
  • 64 ounces non fat reduced sodium chicken broth
  • 1 cup diced celery
  • 1/2 cup carrots (diced)
  • 1/2 cup diced onion
  • 14 1/2 ounces diced tomatoes with juice
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt (or granulated garlic)
  • 6 cups noodles (cooked)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

Directions

  1. In a 4 quart saucepan or Dutch oven, all oil, turkey, celery, carrots and onion. Cook over medium heat until turkey browns and vegetables start to softened.
  2. Add broth, tomatoes, lemon juice, thyme and garlic salt. Simmer for several minutes until thoroughly heated.
  3. Add noodles, stir and serve.
