White Bean and Escarole Soup with Turkey Meatballs

Ground turkey is often a combination of white and dark meat. For this soup, ask the butcher for only the dark meat. It is a little higher in fat, but turkey is relatively lean compared to other poultry and meat, and the dark meat is more flavorful and higher in iron. Serve this soup with a loaf of warm, crusty artisan bread.

very bland
October 11, 2015
I found this recipe to be very bland and had to extend a lot of effort to give it some flavor: 2x the thyme, basil, parsley, red pepper flakes, tons of salt and pepper. That said, once I was done "doctoring" it up, it came out pretty good. Add to that that it's nutritious (also added carrots) and low fat I just might make this again.
Pros: Healthy
Cons: bland

Hearty, Healthy and Delicious!
October 23, 2013
This is a delicious dinner soup. I didn't make any changes to the recipe except I doubled the chicken broth amount (I always do) and I cooked the escarole in water ahead of time and then just added to the broth - this worked out really well. My husband and I both loved it with some chunks of ciabatta bread (I don't even think it needed the bread - the beans are hearty). On a level of difficulty it took about 30 minutes of prep which I did in between putting the baby to bed. Going to be a winter favorite in our house!
Pros: Yield, Quick, Good Value, Healthy, Will Make Again
