  • Heat olive oil in a large soup pot; add turkey, onion, and garlic. Cook over medium heat until meat browns and onion is soft, about 5 minutes. Stir in sage and rosemary and cook for about 1 minute, do not allow herbs to brown. Pour the broth and water into the pot along with the garbanzo beans and tomato paste. Bring to a boil and add kale. Simmer until kale softens, about 5 minutes. Season soup with salt and pepper.

  • To serve, place a serving of cooked pasta in the bottom of a soup bowl and ladle hot soup over.

The flavour is good but whoa nelly the pasta pushes the soup over the edge (in terms of heartiness)! I would use less pasta or perhaps none at all. I also threw in some chopped cilantro and a few tbsp of cooked lentils that I had left over from another dish. Read More

Don't understand why my experience was so far short of the rave reviews this recipe got. I am pretty good at following a recipe. I give it three stars based on good healthy ingredients. Read More

Delicious esp. with the fresh herbs. Instead of the pasta I added cooked quinoa for a little extra protein and whole grain nutrition - excellent. Read More

This is a delicious soup that's comforting on a chilly night and super easy to prepare. I used leftover T-giving turkey veg broth (it's what I always have on hand) and leftover pumpkin puree instead of tomato paste (I thought it would go better with the rosemary and sage). I also omitted the pasta. The only thing I'd change in the future is to add more kale. This will be my go-to turkey soup recipe during the holidays! Read More

Great soup. I decided to put in a cup of dry quinoa instead of using pasta and simmered until the quinoa is done. This made it nice and thick and stewy. I also used a lot of extra garlic (whole cloves) and hot sauce because I just do that with everything. Read More

This soup is delicious! The fresh herbs and kale make the soup really stand out from others. I would not change a thing! Read More

I really liked the ingredients. Followed the best I could with what I had on hand. Used homemade chicken broth which changed the flavor quite a bit. Next time I think I'd prefer white beans instead of the garbanzo. The kind I used had a really rough unappealing texture. Read More

This was very good and easy to make. The one thing I will change is to make only 6 to 8 ounces of pasta; 16 ounces of pasta is WAAAY too much for this recipe! Read More

I tried out several soup recipes this winter and this one quickly became my favorite. It's hearty and flavorful...perfect on a cold day with some crusty warm bread. I subbed the 3/4 water with more chicken broth. I also cooked the pasta separate and added in just before serving. If you have leftovers you'll probably want to keep the pasta entirely separate so you don't have that mushiness a day or so later. Thanks Liana for sharing. It will be first on my list to make next winter. Read More

Very hearty and tasty. Made this after learning that Kale holds it's texture in soups and stews and it did. I used ground buffalo rather than turkey because I had some in the freezer but I'll be making it again today with turkey. Yum! Read More
