I don’t know about you but I’m done with turkey for a bit. Delicious for sure but I’ve made two of my own turkey’s this past week (I’m obsessed with whole turkey’s) and I need a bit of a detox. In case you are feeling the same, I felt compelled to share this amazing soup recipe. I came up with it years ago and it’s one of our favorites. It’s creamy (but contains no cream), full of flavor, detoxing and it’s filling without being unhealthy–you wont believe it.
My family and I have been trying to partake in a “meatless” day once a week too and this provides a great option everyone likes. I hope you’ll make it, love it and let me know!
