Crockpot turkey white bean and kale soup

Gosh, I love a good crockpot soup this time of year.  They’re warm, hearty meals that only take a few minutes to make.  Such an easy way to eat extra vegetables, too!

Crockpot Turkey White Bean and Kale Soup

Here are some of my family’s favorite crockpot soup recipes:

Today, I’m adding another delicious soup to our rotation: Crockpot Turkey, White Bean, and Kale Soup.  YUM.

Last week I prepped six make ahead freezer meals in 50 minutes, and this crockpot turkey, white bean, and kale soup was one of them.  After watching my baby inhale a bowl, I decided it need a post of it’s very own with instructions for making it fresh or frozen.  Enjoy!

Crockpot Turkey White Bean and Kale Soup

Yields: Six servings of soup

Ingredients

  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 pound carrots, peeled and cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1/2 bunch of kale, washed and sliced
  • 1 can cannellini beans (white kidney beans), washed and drained
  • 1 Italian salad dressing pouch (affiliate link) or 2 tablespoons homemade dry mix (2 tablespoons of Italian seasonings is a great shortcut)
  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 8 cups chicken broth

Directions

Combine all ingredients in crockpot and cook on “low” setting for 8 hours, or until carrots are soft.

To Freeze

Combine all ingredients (except chicken broth) in a gallon-sized plastic freezer bag.  (I always use these freezer bags. <affilliate link>)  Add the ground turkey to the bag last so it’s the first ingredient poured into your crockpot.  Remove as much air from the bag as possible, seal, and lay flat in your freezer.

Crockpot Turkey White Bean and Kale Soup

Thaw before cooking and add to your crockpot with chicken broth.  Cook on “low” setting for 8 hours, or until carrots are soft.  Serve with baked garlic bread or crusty Fresh bread, and Enjoy!

My husband and I really enjoyed this soup! (My kids tried it but were being overly picky that night). 😉 Love, love, love the freezer meals. Keep ’em coming!

Hi Kelly! I think this is my favorite of your recipes that I’ve made so far. Had it for dinner last week and froze a batch as well. The honey-sesame chicken is cooking today with a batch of that frozen too. I am loving these recipes… keep them coming! 🙂

Can you use turkey breast cut into cubes instead of ground turkey? Would you have to change cooking time?

For the seasoning in the soup could you use pre-maid Italian salad dressing? how much? too oily? I am also wanting to make the cranberry chicken but I dont see where you gave the spices and amounts. Please help me out, thanks!
