Lean Turkey Bean Soup or Lettuce Wrap Filling…right?


This is one of those simple recipes that can be transformed into something completely different.  I have been making this soup for years…it is one of my younger daughter
Chlo’es most favorite things. I was making this soup one day last week when it
is was raining cats & dogs…we were chilled, and felt like something warm and
delicious. I love this recipe because it is an easy 30 minute meal as well.
Often, if I don’t have exactly every item, I go through my vegetable drawer
and can easily use anything that is in there to make the perfect blend.

But we enjoyed the soup so much, that a day or two later we wanted it again….but just before I added all of the water and bouillon, I took a little nibble. Well it was so……..
delish, I decided to just use it as a filling for lettuce wraps. It was so simple, hearty
and made such an easy lunch. We ended up eating it a few days in a row. Then, the
last  little bit of it I made into a simple soup adding a few cups of chicken broth
for Chlo’e to have for an after school snack. She just loved it.
