Week Deux

Weekend – Crockpot Turkey Meatball Soup

Prep – 15 minutes / Cook 8 hours (low)


4c veg stock
1c carrots, halved
4 stalks celery, chopped
1 onion, chopped
1 bay leaf
3/4lb ground turkey
curry, cumin, cayenne, celery salt, pepper
breadcrumbs (optional)
**Add stock and all vegetables into crockpot, turn on high (my stock was still frozen). Prep the meatballs by adding any seasonings you prefer (add breadcrumbs if meat is too wet). Using a melon baller, roll into small meatballs and add directly to crockpot. Cook on high 4 hours and reduce to low for 4 hours. You cannot overcook this soup; however, you want to ensure the meat is cooked thoroughly. Boil any pasta you prefer and serve with soup and a buttered roll. Top with sour cream and chives.
