  • 1 pound lean (93%) ground turkey
  • ¾ teaspoon kosher salt divided
  • ¾ teaspoon ground pepper divided
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • ½ yellow onion chopped
  • 1 medium carrot diced
  • 1 stalk celery diced
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 large green bell pepper chopped
  • ½ large red bell pepper chopped
  • 1 (14 oz.) can crushed tomatoes (preferably no salt added)
  • 1 (14 oz.) can tomato sauce (preferably no salt added)
  • 3 ½ cups chicken broth
  • ½ cup instant brown rice (dry)
  • 3 tablespoons minced flat-leaf parsley
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Heat a large nonstick saucepan over medium-high heat and lightly coat with cooking spray.
  • Add the ground turkey and season with ½ teaspoon salt and ½ teaspoon pepper. Cook, crumbling with a wooden spoon, until the turkey is cooked through. Transfer to a bowl and discard any liquid.
  • Heat the olive oil in the same saucepan, reducing the heat to medium.
  • Add the onion, carrot and celery. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion is translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in the garlic, Italian seasoning and bay leaves. Cook for 1 minute.
  • Add the green and red bell pepper, crushed tomatoes, tomato sauce, chicken broth, cooked ground turkey, ¼ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper to the saucepan. Stir to combine.
  • Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce heat so that the soup cooks at a lively simmer. Cook for 25 minutes.
  • Add the instant brown rice and cook for additional 10 minutes, or until the rice is tender.
  • Remove from the heat, remove and discard the bay leaves, stir in the parsley and adjust the seasoning, if necessary. Serve.
