Tiny Turkey Meatballs and Other Yummy Stuff

Our Texas weather is indecisive…to say the least. From 80 to 40 to 80 again. Our bipolar weather is not only to blame for the numerous doctor visits (is it allergies? a cold?) and  wardrobe confusion, but also for the creation of this comforting soup.

When it’s cold and rainy outside, nothing beats sitting in front of a fire with a big warm bowl of soup. Which is exactly what I did last night. I once again just tossed together some items that I had on hand, and I have to tell you, it turned out better than I had hoped. This recipe (if you can even call it that) is so easy. And healthy. And filling. And delicious. And I cannot wait to have it as leftovers tonight.

Tiny Turkey Meatballs & Other Yummy Stuff


  • 1lb of ground turkey
  • 2 small zucchinis
  • 8oz of sliced mushrooms
  • a couple of handfuls of chopped kale
  • 1 large can of diced tomatoes
  • 1 carton of chicken stock
  • 1 clove of chopped garlic
  • olive oil
  • garlic salt, dried onion flakes, and S&P
  • a couple shakes of hot sauce


  1. Heat olive oil in a soup pot over medium heat
  2. Combine turkey with garlic salt and S&P
  3. Using the turkey make tiny meatballs and toss them directly in to the olive oil, shaking the pot on occasion to toss the meatballs and prevent sticking to the bottom
  4. Add in the chicken stock and tomatoes, and hot sauce, S&P and increase heat to high
  5. Add in the vegetables and cover, cooking for about 10 minutes
  6. Remove lid and toss in the kale. Lower heat and continue to cook for about 3 more minutes.

There you have it. That’s it!

What is your go-to soup for cold rainy nights???
