How To: The Easiest Soup You Will Ever Make

Happy Halloween! Whether you are trick-or-treating or spending a night in, here is a great dinner for those short for time or those with time to spare.

Ever short on time? Of course–we’re students and young adults. We’re cooking for ourselves, roommates, and families. That is where this soup comes in. From assembling ingredients to a finished soup, it takes about 30 minutes. Plus, it tastes good 🙂

First, you have to brown some ground turkey.


Then, add some canned tomatoes–the recipe this is adapted from called for canned tomatoes with garlic and onion–and white kidney beans.


Add some broth, Italian spices, and bring it to a boil. Add some spinach and let it cook for 5 minutes. You can let it simmer or just eat it in all its delicious glory.

adapted from Cooking Light


  • 1 pound of ground turkey
  • 1 can of tomatoes with green chilies (10 ounces)
  • 1 can of white kidney beans or cannelloni beans (15 ounces)
  • 1 tbsp of Italian seasoning
  • 4 cups of chicken broth
  • 4 cups of spinach

Make it

In a nice, big soup pot, add a little bit of olive oil and heat it at medium heat. Add the turkey and cook it till it’s totally browned.

Add the tomatoes, beans, seasoning, and broth. Bring it to a boil. Just let those flavors meld together 🙂

Turn down the heat to a simmer, add the spinach, put a lid on it and leave it alone for five minutes. (This is the ideal break to make garlic bread.)

Let it simmer–5 minutes or an hour–and then serve it up.


This recipe doubles beautifully. And it would be good as a side to a panini or a salad.
