Soups and stews are one of my favorite parts of colder weather. There’s something about a pot of simmering goodness that makes the cold weather feel extra cozy and comforting. This turkey soup is nothing short of that, its hearty, warming and nourishing. In fact it’s one of my top favorite winter meal and I think you’re in for a treat. With only few wholesome ingredients like parsnips and kale this would make the perfect soup when you’re craving a comforting, satisfying dinner. Making the turkey broth is the only part of this recipe that takes any length of time. And once it’s done, this soup comes together fast. If you give this recipe a try, let us know!
