To start off this post, I just want to say that this is my 100th POST! Yay!! How cool is that?! So to celebrate, I’m going to bring out a new recipe that I made up today–Turkey, Corn and Bean Soup (creative name, I know, lol). Basically I was trying to use up some stuff I had in the pantry and it has been getting pretty chilly and felt like it should be a soup night. This was super easy, I threw it together on my lunch hour, put it in my crock pot, and let it go all day so it was done when I got home. The best part? It’s pretty healthy! Let me know what you think!
Turkey, Corn, and Bean Soup
1 package frozen corn
1 can beans, drained and rinsed (can be navy beans, pinto beans, black beans, etc)
2 cups cooked turkey, chopped (I used smoked turkey that had been given to us)
1 quart turkey/chicken stock (I used homemade)
2 teaspoons Garlic salt
1 tablespoon Onion powder
1/2 teaspoon Parsley flakes
1 teaspoon Cumin
Pepper, to taste
Add all ingredients to crockpot, with the seasonings to taste (I’ll put about what I used). Turn crockpot on to low heat and let go for 6-7 hours.
This should freeze really well, and would be nice for a quick lunch during the work week. I plan on freezing it in one serving containers so that I can just take out a meal at a time.
