This is a wholesome and hearty soup, which is perfect for the cold winter months. Turkey mince is simmered with pasta, chickpeas and kale in a seasoned chicken stock.
Dried herbs can be substituted for the fresh, just use half as much.
The flavour is good, but whoa nelly, the pasta pushes the soup over the edge (in terms of heartiness)! I would use less pasta or perhaps none at all. I also threw in some chopped cilantro and a few tbsp of cooked lentils that I had left over from another dish. - 27 May 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Delicious, esp. with the fresh herbs. Instead of the pasta I added cooked quinoa for a little extra protein and whole grain nutrition - excellent. - 14 Mar 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This is a delicious soup that's comforting on a chilly night and super easy to prepare. I used leftover T-giving turkey, veg broth (it's what I always have on hand), and leftover pumpkin puree instead of tomato paste (I thought it would go better with the rosemary and sage). I also omitted the pasta. The only thing I'd change in the future is to add more kale. This will be my go-to turkey soup recipe during the holidays! - 02 Dec 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
