Tuscan Turkey Soup

It has been really cold, windy and rainy in Beaverton lately and the only thing to cure that is to make a big pot of soup. My husband found a recipe for a soup that we thought would do the trick to warm us up from the inside out, we wanted a soup that was thick, hearty and full of flavor and this recipe had all of that. We did of course take the liberty to add a few things to make it more our own recipe and to make this soup really have a kick.

1 C. - Chopped Onion
1 Tsp. - Minced Garlic
2 Tbs. - EVOO
2 (14.5 oz) - Cans Chicken Broth
2 C. - Cubed Turkey
1 Can (15 oz) - Solid Pack Pumpkin
1 Can (15 oz) - Cannellini Beans
½ Tsp. - Salt
½ Tsp. - Dried Basil
¼ Tsp. - Pepper
2 Tbs. - Johnny's Garlic Seasonings
½ Tbs. - Italian Seasonings
½ Tsp. - Louisiana Season or Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
2 Large - Red Potatoes (cubed)
Wondra Flour or Corn Starch
Grated Parmesan Cheese

In a large soup pot sauté the onion and garlic in the EVOO until tender. Stir in the broth, turkey, pumpkin, beans, potatoes and all of the spices. Bring to a boil and cook until the potatoes are tender and everything is heated. Thicken with some Wondra flour or corn starch to the desired thickness you like, then dish into bowls and garnish with Parmesan cheese.

I could really go for some of this. It's cold over here too and soup is perfect for days like these.

Marybeth, this does sound like a terrific soup. You are so correct about a large 'one pot' meal to ease the cold days of winter.

Thanks for this great recipe...
