The best and most important part of this recipe though? My husband loves it!
1 pound of ground turkey, cooked separately beforehand
4 red potatoes, cut into small pieces
2 cups onions, chopped fine
1 cup carrots, chopped
1.5 cups celery, chopped
1 cups zucchini, sliced
8 ounces tomato sauce, canned (low sodium for a heart healthy option)
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 Tbs dried parsley
1 tsp dried cilantro or to taste
black pepper to taste
Directions1. In a large stockpot, combine chicken broth, potatoes, onions, carrots, and celery. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium high and simmer until the potatoes are tender, 20-30 minutes.
2. Add the turkey, zucchini, tomato sauce, garlic, parsley and cilantro. Reduce heat to medium low and simmer 10-15 minutes more until zucchini is JUST tender. Season to taste with black pepper and serve.
