With Thanksgiving coming up, you're going to need all the turkey recipes you can get! I found this recipe on the Taste of Home website and made it for dinner last night...It's SO GOOD. Perfect for snuggling on the couch with a warm blanket on  blustery afternoon. It's called "Contest-Winning Turkey Meatball Soup" and it's for ground turkey, but I'm sure it would be just as delicious if you substitute some roasted turkey.  photo Use 1_zpsak9szpb8.jpg
Ingredients:
2 cans chicken broth (I actually used vegetable broth in mine)
1 celery rib with leaves, thinly sliced (I used 2)
1 medium carrot, thinly sliced (I used about 18 miniature carrots)
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 tablespoon butter
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
2 tablespoons dried parsley flakes
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/2 pound lean ground turkey
1 cup uncooked egg noodles
I added a 1/2 teaspoon of garlic and a dash of salt to the pot half way through cooking (because I love garlic).

What to do:
1) In a large saucepan, bring the broth, celery and carrot to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 10 minutes.
2) Meanwhile, in a small skillet, saute onion in butter until tender. Transfer to a large bowl. Add the egg, bread crumbs, parsley, Worcestershire sauce and pepper. Crumble turkey over mixture and mix well. Shape into 1-in. balls.

3) Add meatballs to the simmering broth. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 15 minutes or until no meat is longer pink. Add noodles. 

4) Cover and simmer for 5 minutes or until noodles are tender. 

Makes about 5 servings.

I love this recipe because it's tasty, SUPER easy, and the best part is it's only 193 calories per serving! Enjoy and have a happy turkey day!

Until next time,
