As a fellow mom on the fly, I have a passion to serve other moms who want to ditch the processed crap and focus on the real food. I've journeyed through six years of trial and error and now hope to empower other women to take charge of their health. Real food is key. As your real food coach, I am here to guide you toward a successful health transformation through the use of real foods!
1/2 large red pepper, diced
2 celery stalks with greens, diced
1 large carrot, diced
8 oz mushrooms, sliced4 garlic cloves, pressed
3 tbsp butter
3 tbsp flour, I use cassava for GF
1 small butternut squash, peeled and diced1 1/2 tsp thyme, fresh
6-8 cups broth
1 can coconut milk, or cream
3 cups diced or shredded turkey
2 handfuls baby spinach
1/2 package of egg noodles, I use Jovial GF
1 1/2 tsp salt to taste
1 tsp pepper
Heat dutch oven or bigger soup pot on medium heat. Add butter and the first 4 ingredients. Cook till onion is clear in color and mushrooms softened then add garlic and thyme for 2-3 minutes. If the butter is all absorbed then add another 2 tablespoons to mix, melt then add your flour. Stir until the flour is cooked a bit and combined with veggies. This is your roux.
Now you start to add the broth one cup at a time. Heating up to thicken a bit with each cup. I use about 4 cups then add turkey and squash. Cook for 15 minutes. Next add the noodles, coconut milk, and more broth as needed. Cook till noodles are softened. Lastly, add the baby spinach and cook for 5ish more minutes. I add salt and pepper slowly at the end for taste.
If you wish for denser soup use less liquid, more “soupier,” use more. Remember the noodles will absorb liquid too. So you will likely need to add more broth.
