December Turkey Meatball Soup

December is a great month with all the holiday in it.  At some point you might be cooking a turkey and get into the spirit.  Here is a great soup to try during that time. I love turkey anytime of the year and usually cook it several times.  I  use turkey chopped meat a great deal.  You can also buy frozen turkey meatballs and use them.  Give this one a try.

Turkey Meatball Soup

10-15 turkey meatballs (you can use frozen ones or make fresh turkey chopped meat- meatballs)
2 1/2 cups chicken broth (or if you can find it turkey broth, but it is hard to find)
1 can (14 oz) strewed tomatoes
2 medium zucchini, cleaned, chopped in pieces
2 carrots, thinly sliced
2/3 cup corn (either frozen or canned0
1/2 cup green beans (either frozen or canned)
1 teaspoon dried basil (or use fresh if you have it, 2 T)
Salt and pepper to taste

In a large soup pot, combine the chicken broth, stewed tomatoes, zucchini, carrots, corn, green beans, basil, and salt and pepper.
Bring to a boil, then simmer, covered for 30-40 minutes or until the veggie are tender.
Add the meatballs, simmer until tender another 30-40 minutes.
Serves 5-6

I like to serve a nice piece of French bread or some other great bread with this soup.
Enjoy!
