Why We Love It

Soup is my all time favorite comfort food. And I really like this Turkey Meatball soup since it immediately jogged my memory of the times I had the sniffles as a child.

You’d all the time find me curled up on the couch with my Nana’s blanket, watching Nickelodeon all day long!

An enormous bowl of brothy soup was all the time there, too. And on chilly days, I prefer to whip up a batch of this turkey meatball soup to remind me of those comforting, cozy times.

This soup is nourishing and hearty, without being heavy. The addition of zucchini noodles have a pasta-like quality that actually makes it feel like the proper winter meal, while still being good for you!

Like my Ham & White Bean Soup and Classic Lentil Soup, this recipe is one I come back to time and time again!

Ingredients

Ingredients Notes:

  • Use chicken or vegetable broth. Some health experts say bone broth has advantages like improved gut health and immunity.
  • There are a wide selection of store bought broths to select from. There are tons of great options on the market, from Porter Road (use code COOKATHOME10 for a reduction!) to more budget friendly options at Walmart and Costco.
  • To maintain this recipe low carb and Whole30, this soup is made with Zucchini Noodles. That is a straightforward and healthy swap whenever you’re used to pasta in soups. It slurps up whenever you eat it, which might be my favorite thing about soup, hah! You may substitute any noodle or spaghetti, but cook it individually in boiling salted water, so it doesn’t suck up all of the broth within the soup because it cooks.

Time Saving Suggestions

  • My favorite spiralizer works like a charm on zucchini, but there are a ton of decisions in relation to spiralizers.
  • Select zucchini which can be on the small side. The larger ones have too many seeds.
  • Alternately, you may buy store-bought zucchini noodles. Plenty of grocery stores sell fresh, pre-spiralized zucchini. There are also frozen, pre-spiralized noodles too (Green Giant makes them).
  • Make a double batch of the the meatballs, and freeze half for straightforward soup-making one other day!
