Turkey and Squash Soup
- Active Time 35m
- Total Time 45m
6 servings, about 1 1/2 cups each
You can also make this with diced cooked turkey, adding it near the end. Serve with lime wedges for squeezing into each bowl.
- 2 teaspoons canola oil
- 2 leeks, trimmed, thoroughly cleaned and chopped (3 1/2 cups)
- 1 red bell pepper, cored, seeded and chopped
- 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
- 4 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
- 1 1/2 pounds butternut squash (2 medium), peeled, seeded and cut into 1-inch cubes
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh thyme or 2 teaspoons dried thyme leaves
- 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
- 1 pound turkey cutlets, cut into 1/2 x 2-inch strips
- 2 cups frozen corn kernels
- 2 tablespoons lime juice
- 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
- Salt and freshly ground pepper
Heat oil in a large heavy pot over medium-high heat. Add leeks and pepper; cook, stirring often until the vegetables begin to soften, 3 to 4 minutes. Add garlic and cook, stirring constantly, 1 minute more.
Stir in broth, squash, thyme and cumin; cover and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook until the vegetables are tender, about 10 minutes.
Add turkey and corn; return the broth to a simmer. Simmer until the turkey is just cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes. Add lime juice and crushed red pepper. Gently warm the soup until heated through. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
