Ground turkey is a lean, mean, hunger-fighting machine! And quite frankly, it’s underrated.

One bite, and you’ll see that these ground turkey soup recipes are warm, comforting, and crazy-delicious.

Plus, they’re terrific for those on the hunt for low-fat meals that’ll keep you full for hours.

P.S. You can totally use ground turkey in recipes that call for ground beef. In fact, I bet you won’t even taste the difference.

Easy and Healthy Ground Turkey Soups We Can’t Get Enough Of

1. Ground Turkey Soup with Vegetables and Pasta

This delicious recipe is like a cross between chili and chicken noodle soup.

It’s got the beans and ground meat of chili with the brothy, noodly goodness of chicken noodle soup.

Loaded with veggies like spinach and carrots, you’ll find plenty of meaty chunks of ground turkey in every spoonful.

2. Ground Turkey and Veggie-Loaded Soup

If you’re a fan of veggie and beef soup, you’ll definitely like this one! 

The name says it all – this soup is absolutely loaded with veggies, including tomatoes, onions, carrots, potatoes, peas, and zucchini.

Well-seasoned and super filling, you could even add kale or spinach for extra green goodness. 

It is perfect for a cool night when you want something comforting.

3. Easy Ground Turkey Rice Soup

If you prefer heartier soups and stews, this is a must-make. It’s thick and chunky with a touch of creaminess you’ll love. 

And it’s healthy, too!

It’s chock-full of veggies and lean ground turkey, making it very nourishing.

Meanwhile, the creaminess comes from a splash of almond milk, so it’s also dairy-free. 

Speaking of: this recipe is dairy and gluten-free. That means it’s ideal for people with allergies. 

4. Turkey and Kale Soup

This turkey and kale soup is insanely good.

Between the tender veggies, juicy meat, herbs, and flavorful broth, it has everything you could ever want in a soup. 

5. Turkey Cabbage Soup

This soup is like an egg roll in a bowl!

It’s full of delicious meat, cabbage, carrots, sesame, soy sauce, ginger, garlic, and onions. 

Fragrant and savory, add a little Sriracha for heat if you like.

Either way, I guarantee you’ll want to slurp every last drop of this delectable soup. 

PRO TIP: buy some egg roll/wonton wrappers, fry them until golden, and use them to garnish!

6. Ground Turkey Taco Soup

Give this soup a shot if you’re bored with your typical Taco Tuesday menu. 

Featuring delicious meat, tomatoes, chunky beans, and all the bold flavors of tacos, it’s utterly delicious.

But the best part is the toppings!

Add some avocados, cilantro, sour cream, tortilla chips, lettuce, olives, salsa… whatever you like! 

7. Italian Wedding Soup with Turkey Meatballs

Oddly enough, this soup has nothing to do with weddings. Instead, it gets its name from the delicious marriage of flavors. 

I like this modern take on the traditional recipe, which typically features leafy greens, meat, and Acini de Pepe (a type of pasta). 

The modern take still has leafy greens, meat, and pasta. But you’ll also add cheesy tortellini to make it wonderfully filling. 

8. Turkey Cheeseburger Soup

This turkey cheeseburger soup is where it’s at!

It’s delicious, slurpable, and tastes like a cheeseburger with its savory, meaty, and fabulously cheesy finish.

Add a tablespoon of mustard and ketchup for extra flavor and cheeseburger goodness.

Serve with fresh buns to complete the burger experience. Yum!

9. Ground Turkey Chili

If you need to feed a crowd, this ground turkey chili has you covered.

It’s bold, spicy, and extremely thick. Plus, it tastes exactly like your favorite chili, and no one will notice it’s not loaded with beef.

Top it with your favorite chili extras, and don’t forget the cornbread on the side!

10. Turkey White Bean Chili

If you like your chili on the milder side, try this smoky chili. It’s creamy and light but still warm and comforting. If the previous chili is made for fall, this one is made for summer. 


Oh, and it’s super tasty! 

11. Pesto Turkey Tortellini Soup

Transport yourself to the Italian coast with this pesto, turkey, and tortellini soup.

Similar to the Italian wedding soup, this one features lots of green goodness, meat, and pasta. 

But instead of leafy greens, this recipe utilizes the herbaceousness of pesto for its green color.

The pesto also adds incredible flavor, with notes of salt, cheesiness, and nuttiness. 

Now all you need is some crusty bread and a glass of vino. 

12. Turkey Meatball Soup

What’s your favorite part of chicken noodle soup? 

Is it the well-seasoned broth, the tender, delicious meat, or the soft, chewy noodles? 

Honestly, it doesn’t matter what you like best because this turkey meatball soup has it all.

13. Turkey Wild Rice Soup

If you love creamy, savory soups, this one should be right up your alley. Every bite is luxurious and satisfying.

Turkey wild rice soup is essentially the same as chicken wild rice soup. The difference, obviously, lies in the meat. 

You can use leftover turkey breast if you have it. However, ground turkey is my preference because it’s cheap, easy to make, and you can add extra seasonings. 

And for some reason, it just feels more filling. So, however you make it, I know you’ll love it! 

14. One-Pot Turkey Lasagna Soup

You could call this dish “One-pot Turkey Lasagna Soup.”

However, I think “Lazy Liquid Lasagna” is much more fun to say! And it seriously tastes like lasagna. 

Of course, this dish requires a fraction of the effort. And that is fine by me! Because you really can’t beat easy and delicious dinners everyone will love. 

Serve this with cheesy garlic bread and Caesar salad. 

15. Crockpot Turkey Soup

This Crock Pot turkey soup is effortless to make, and it tastes fantastic.

Simply add everything to the slow cooker and let it go all day. The only hard part is chopping the veggies. 

After a few hours, you’ll have a hearty and flavorful soup. Add some coconut milk at the end for a deliciously creamy finish. 

This recipe includes a section on how to make this with ground turkey, but chicken works too.
