I live on this hearty delicious soup in winter! I start making it right after Thanksgiving using leftover turkey. I absolutely love it; it just makes me happy and is one of those dishes I crave when it is cool outside. Also, it’s really pretty, which soups aren’t always.
|2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil||1 (15-ounce) can diced tomatoes, drained|
|5 large shallots, chopped||1 cup cooked brown rice|
|3 medium carrots, peeled and cut into -inch pieces||1 small bunch kale, center ribs removed, leaves coarsely chopped (4 packed cups)|
|1 large red bell pepper, cut into -inch pieces||1 teaspoon kosher salt|
|8 ounces ground white turkey meat, broken into small chunks||1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper|
|1 tablespoon herbes de Provence||1/4 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves|
|5 cups low-sodium chicken broth||1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese|
Heat the oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add the shallots, carrots, and bell pepper and sauté, stirring frequently, until beginning to brown and soften slightly, 8 to 10 minutes.
Add the turkey and stir until the meat turns white and begins to color very slightly around the edges, 5 to 7 minutes. Add the herbes de Provence and stir for 1 minute. Add the broth, diced tomatoes, and cooked rice and bring to a boil. Stir in the kale and season with ¾ teaspoon of the salt and the black pepper. Reduce the heat to medium-low. Cover and simmer until the vegetables are tender, about 15 minutes. Season with the remaining ¼ teaspoon salt.
Ladle the soup into bowls. Sprinkle with the parsley and some Parmesan cheese.
