All-Time Favorite: Turkey Kale Brown Rice Soup

I literally crave this soup.  It is my all-time favorite and EVERYONE who makes it loves it!  It’s super healthy and filling and when combined with a salad, it’s a complete meal.

Give this simple recipe a try and be prepared to double or triple it the next time you make it after you see how quickly it disappears!

  9. Ladle the soup into bowls. Sprinkle with the cheese and season with additional salt and pepper as needed. Serve and enjoy!
