Happy tasty Tuesday everybody! It’s that time of year when we get to eat tons of delicious comfort food without all of the guilt. Some of my favorite fall comfort foods are hot, yummy, soups. Everybody loves a good soup and I’ve posted quite a few soup recipes on here. The last few days have been cool and rainy here in Montana, which has had me daydreaming about delicious soups for dinner.Read More
If you follow my Instagram account you probably know I have been into meal prepping and clean eating for a few months now. My go to meals have always been chicken thighs or salmon with veggies and quinoa. One day I was craving a black bean soup of some sort and decided to throw some ingredients together in a pot with black beans and see what happened. Well…it was amazing. I have since made the recipe a few more times and now that I have perfected it I want to share it with all of you. You can use whatever vegetables you like best because you really can’t go wrong with delicious veggies!
Prep Time: 20 mins | Cook Time: 20 mins | Serves: 5-6
1 lbs. Ground Turkey
15 oz. can Whole Corn
(2) 15 oz. cans Reduced Sodium Black Beans
1/2 bunch of Kale
1 large Red Bell Pepper
2 Jalapeno Peppers
1 large Yellow Onion (diced)
1 cup Cilantro
1 Tbsp Garlic
1 tsp Cayenne Pepper
1 tsp Cinnamon
2 tsp Salt
1 tsp Black Pepper
1 tsp Thyme
1 tsp Smoked Paprika (regular paprika is OK too)
1 Tbsp Honey
3 Tbsp Olive Oil
2 cups Water
- Heat your olive oil over medium high heat for a minute or until really hot. Add your garlic, and diced up onions, red bell pepper, and jalapenos to the pot. Stir for 3 minutes or until soft and add your ground turkey to the pot. Break up and stir ground turkey until browned.
- Once your turkey is browned add your can of corn (drained), cans of black beans (NOT drained), cilantro, and spices to the pot. Stir well to combine ingredients and spices.
- Now add your water to the pot, stir to combine, then add your pieces of kale to the pot. Make sure the kale is mixed and covered with the soup liquid then cover pot and let simmer for 10 minutes.
- Taste your soup and adjust the seasonings to your own taste buds. I tend to like spice and always add more cayenne and black pepper to my mix.
- Brown 1-2 corn tortillas and dip in your soup for an even more delicious taste.
You can share this delicious recipe with others or meal prep for 5-6 meals. Remember you can switch and mix it up with your own spices and veggies in this soup. You can even branch out to different types of beans, however, I would research which beans are best for clean eating purposes.
Enjoying a delicious meal without guilt is one of my favorite feelings! 😉 Have a great evening and let me know how you like the recipe!
This is by far my favorite recipe to date, because it is one I completely made from scratch, on my own. I asked my husband what he wanted for dinner one night and he said he wanted stroganoff. I had already taken ground turkey out to thaw earlier that day, and wondered how a stroganoff would taste using ground turkey instead of beef. I decided to go through my pantry and refrigerator to see if I had ingredients I could use to make a stroganoff. I’ve never made stroganoff from scratch before, but I’ve gotten pretty good in the kitchen learning what pairs well together, and goes into making base sauces for popular recipes.
So I decided to give it a try, and to say my husband and I were impressed is an understatement. He was a little scared of how it was going to taste considering I winged the recipe LOL. Of course when you make a recipe from scratch you have to make it at least one more time to figure out the exact measurements and ingredients. The second time around was just as good the first attempt, which means it’s only right I share it with my readers. If you decide to give it a try, leave me a comment and let me know how you like it and/or what you changed to make it your own. 🙂
Prep time: 10 mins | Cook time: 30 mins | Serves: 4
1 lbs. – Ground Turkey
3 cups – Beef Broth
1/4 cup – Sour Cream
2 oz. – Cream Cheese
1 – Beef Bouillon Cube
1/2 pint – Heavy Cream
3 Tbsp – Worcestershire Sauce
1/2 – Medium Onion
4 cups – Egg Noodles
1 Tbsp – Minced Garlic
Salt and Pepper (to taste)
1 cup Diced Mushrooms
In a skillet on medium high heat, using your olive oil, brown your diced onions (mushrooms) and garlic for about 2-3 minutes. Once they have cooked some add your ground turkey and cook until it has completely. If you don’t want your sauce to be thinner, drain your ground turkey and sit it to the side. If not, leave your ground turkey in the skillet to the side.
In a separate pot, on medium high heat, combine the following ingredients: beef broth, butter, sour cream, heavy cream, beef bouillon cube, Worcestershire sauce, and cream cheese. Whisk and stir until all ingredients have combined into a smooth creamy sauce.
Add your egg noodles to the sauce mixture and let cook for 7-10 minutes or until slighty soft. One your noodles have softened, add your ground turkey and onion mixture to the pot. Stir until all of the ingredients have combined. Cover the pot and let the stroganoff simmer for 15 more minutes, or until it thickens.
Dish your food and sprinkle with chopped parsley. Dinner is ready to be served.
Enjoy your tasty meal!
