I really love utilizing ground turkey in recipes. In fact, my ground turkey stuffed peppers are currently the most popular recipe on my blog—for good reason. Be sure you don’t miss it!

I think that people may shy away from using ground turkey in their favorite recipes, but, I find that it’s a tasty replacement for ground beef.

In fact, I strongly prefer ground turkey in my vegetable soup and my family agrees that this recipe is a winner, hands down.

I also love this ground turkey vegetable soup because it’s not fussy. It’s similar to the veggie soup that my grandma used to make when I was a kid!

This is actually a cornerstone dinner recipe in my home and one that I come back to over and over throughout the year.

I adore hearty soup recipes when the weather begins to cool down in the fall. There’s just something so comforting about a big bowl of vegetable soup. Honestly, I could eat this soup every day, and I do thoroughly enjoy my leftovers for days after I make this soup.

I’m often asked by my readers if my soups freeze well. While I haven’t frozen this soup, I think it would do great in the freezer. I’m going to give that a whirl very soon and I’ll report back with my results! :)

  1. Can I add kale to this, if so how much?

  2. My sister made this and brought me over some. It is so good. But I am on a calorie counting diet. 
    Do you know what the serving size and nutritional information is?

  3. I am making this today, as it’s COLD! I am having to make some adjustments for what I have in the house. I am using 2 vans of VegAll canned vegetables versus fresh. I dont have celery so I am adding a pinch of celery seed, but everything else I have. Im serving it with some corn bread muffins(sweetened with honey)

  4. When does the garlic go in ? Lol

  5. This was the perfect recipe! Just what I was wanting.

  6. I just made this delicious healthy soup tonight from your recipe! I ❤️ it and will have it everyday for either lunch or dinner! That also save me $$ and I don’t cook much. This is easy to cook! Thank you so much for sharing! 🙏💕

  7. This recipe is fantastic. I’ve made it twice, with both hamburger and turkey. I also load it up with more veggies and make enough for lots of leftovers.

  8. I made this today for the first time. It was delicious. I used frozen mixed vegetables and left out the potatoes. I also added Trader Joe’s Seasoning Salute instead of salt and pepper.

  9. We use ground turkey a lot in my family. I was searching for recipes using ground turkey and wanted to try something different! I found your recipe and I made this soup for dinner last night; it was delicious!! Will definitely make it again!! Thank you for sharing it!! Since I decided at the last minute to search for something to do differently with ground turkey, I had to substitute some ingredients!! So I didn’t have a diced tomatoes, and I used crushed and I didn’t have a can of tomato paste, but I added a few squirts from tube. I didn’t have celery, so I used frozen peas & carrots and added some baby yukon & red potatoes and I had a purple potato; it really looked pretty and tasted sooo good, especially since it was soooo cold last night; it really hit the spot!

  10. Making this for the first time tonight, I’ll let you know how it turns out , and I decided to add some pasta to it  , Thanks for sharing . 

  11. I make this soup quite often to take to work for my lunch. The only change I make is substituting white beans for the potatoes. That makes it zero points on my WW plan. Love it!

  12. Oh my gosh!  My husband quit eating red meat about a year ago, and I wanted to make soup with ground turkey and found your recipe.  It is so delicious!!!   I make it all year round now when that craving for veggie soup rolls around.  Sometimes I add some browned sliced turkey smoked sausage along with the ground turkey.  Thanks for this great addition for a great go to meal.  

  13. Crissy, This soup is scrumptious! I just made it a couple of night’s ago and my husband and I love it!! Thanks for sharing. Carol

  14. Have not been able to find the nutrition on this soup in the article. Am I missing it ?

  15. peepee poo poo

  16. I loved this soup. It is so hearty and tasty and perfect for the first week of Fall!

  17. My husband and I’s new favorite go to for soup! Love it!

    • Good recipe, I did also change it up a bit, instead of Zucchini I used Eggplant, and I also added Green Peas, all in all good soup.

  18. Your soup is amazing. Especially while “shelter at home” . The only changes I made was to add a can of navy beans and I had an Italian seasoning mix I used instead of the oregano and thyme. Excellent!

  19. Can you make this soup using a ground beef?

  20. I just found this recipe and it’s a new family favorite, thank you!

  21. Just made this and eating it now. It’s very tasty and easy to make. I only bought one Caron of broth and there was only 5 cups in it. I didn’t want to go back to the store so I just used that. Found it was not quite soupy enough so I ended up adding the cup I was short on broth in water. Now it’s soupy enough and tastes just as good. 

  22. Can you make this soup using vegetable broth? 

  23. I made this last night. I made the soup broth from chicken and turkey bones that I had frozen (I hate to waste anything). I cooked them in the crock pot then added that to the onions after straining out the bones. I used left over turkey instead of ground, since I had that on hand. The soup was fantastic. My nephew doesn’t like tomato based soups, but he went back for seconds. Thank you so much!

  24. Can I make this without the tomatoes and tomato paste? This is due to dietary restrictions.

  25. Love this soup! I make this very low sodium by using no salt added veggies and tomatoes and paste! I omit the potatoes and add egg noodles instead. So good! 

  26. I made this for dinner this evening. It is delicious!! I love using ground turkey! The family liked it, so much flavor. ?

  27. This soup is absolutely delicious.  I would use fresh corn & green beans.

  28. Great Recipe!! ???? I did a little more of everything that the recipe called for, because my family loves this soup. I added a can of tomato sauce and a little water also, AND some okra.  And  I seasoned my turkey very heavily with Lawry’s seasoning. Plus I made lot of extra seasoned turkey and sat in a bowl on the side in case anyone wanted more meat in their bowl. They complained last time that there wasn’t enough meat in the soup (when I made it exactly by the recipe). Thanks for sharing. 

  29. This is delish!! I’ve made it twice now and my family loves it. I use ground turkey sausage to give it a little extra something. Love it!! 

  30. Love, love, loved the Turkey vegetable soup!  I think it has become my new favourite soup!  Hubby loved it too.  Thank you!

  31. I eliminated potatoes and replaced with dark red kidney beans, because potatoes do not freeze well and the beans even add more color to this delicious soup .  Also added fresh Baby spinach torn, Roma tomatoes, and frozen peas.  I freeze this beautiful soup in wide mouth glass jars and thaw overnight in the fridge.

  32. I have had this recipe for some time now, and I had copied down the nutritional facts at that time, unfortunately at the time did not have to worry about sodium. I was wondering, do you have the full nutritional facts for it as I love to make it, but soups tend to be high in sodium.

    Thankyou for your help.


  33. I’m making my second round of this recipe today, I think its great. I don’t cook much but this is easy, healthy and tastes very good. Thanks for sharing.

  34. Absolutely delicious soup!  The entire family loved it.  Thank you!

  35. Love this soup’s flavor but without potatoes next time will use Orzo andPotatoes don’t freeze well.

  36. This was an excellent vegetable soup recipe.  I only added one potato and put a little bit of cabbage in it too.  I plan to make it again in the fall.

  37. Can i do this in a crock pot?

    By the way, I have made and absolutely love the turkey stuffed pepper recipe! ?

  38. This soup is delicious! I have made this a few times now and making it again tonight. The only thing different that I did was add a can of no salt added peas. Very yummy recipe, thank you for sharing!

  39. I mad me this tonight. I’m just learning how to cook and I found this to be pretty simple! I used no salt chicken broth and no salt diced tomatos, I’m sensitive to salt. This soup has a really good flavor! I will definitely be making it again.
