Reviews for Tuscan Turkey Soup
"This is my favorite soup. Have used turkey, rotisserie chicken, and diced ham! All are delicious!!"
"Love this soup. Pumpkin is a great way to get a thicker broth without adding a lot of calories. It was a little bland for us so we added more pepper, oregano and Lawry's season salt. Very yummy. Definitely a keeper."
"I used chicken cuz it was cheaper than turkey. I had to double the seasonings listed and just kept adding seasonings till it tasted good to me. I know I added some poultry seasoning as suggested by another reviewer as well as oregano, Italian seasoning, and seasoned salt. I definitely added the Parmesan cheese and some hot sauce to my serving. By then, it was quite tasty!"
"I used ground turkey, substituted a yellow bell pepper for the celery and added a half bag of fresh spinach. De-lish. Tasted like it took hours."
"Delicious soup!! I used ground turkey because that was all I had at the time and it was perfect! Will definitely make again!"
"We love this delicious and healthy soup!"
"We loved the taste of this soup. Easy and with simple ingredients."
"I cut the recipe in half b/c I was making it for one person. I added a sweet potato (diced small) and sauteed it for two minutes or so while I chopped my onion and celery. I also added my leftover green beans (with dried cranberries) and corn from Thanksgiving. I also added a little poultry seasoning. I found I needed a little more broth (than one can)."
