Old-Fashioned Turkey Noodle Soup


Are  you looking for something fast , easy and grain free? This old fashion turkey noodle soup will surprise you with this ‘drip off your chin” satisfaction.

Here are two recipes from my book. Hope you enjoy it.

1 butternut squash, peeled, seeded and cubed into 3/4’ inch pieces (approx. 4 cups)
3 garlic cloves, peeled and chopped
1/2 sweet onion, peeled and halved
1 tablespoon olive or coconut oil
1/2 teaspoon Celtic sea salt
2 1/2 low sodium vegetable broth
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Toss you’re prepared vegetables with olive oil on place them on a large cast iron skillet for roasting. Stir a few time to make sure squash is fork tender and roast for 40 minutes. Remove any onion or garlic that seem to be over roasting and set aside. After you’ve roasted them for 40 minutes, allow them to cool for 10 to 15 min. Remove any garlic or onions that have over ‘roasted”.
Place your roasted mixture in a blender or a food processor and blend until creamy. In large pot place blended mix and broth and salt. Cook on medium low until heated through adding more liquid as needed and taste for seasoning.
I like topping my soup with raw pumpkin seeds and a dash of cayenne pepper for some heat.
Roasted Red Pepper & Tomato Soup
10 medium sized vine-ripened tomatoes, quartered
1 small onion, quartered
4 cloves of garlic
2 red bell peppers, seeds removed and quartered

A few sprigs of rosemary
Celtic Sea salt & ground black pepper

Toss your prepared vegetables including your garlic and rosemary with olive oil and place them in a cast iron skillet. Sprinkle with thyme, sea salt, and freshly ground black pepper and mix well to combine.
Roast veggies for 45-50 minutes, or until tender and lightly browned. Blend your roasted mix in a blender or a food processor and blend until the soup is thick & creamy. In large pot place blended mix. If it’s too thick you might want to add a little bit more veggie broth. Cook on medium low until heated through adding more liquid as needed and taste for seasoning.
