Sinfully Delicious but Saintly Soup ;)

This soup is one of my all time favorites!  My best friend's mom used to make it when we were little kids.  One day, she came home from work to find the crock pot was completely bare!  We had eaten the whole batch of soup before dinner.  Amazingly she wasn't mad, but pleased, since it contains so many veggies :)  Enjoy!

Sinfully Delicious but Saintly Soup

1/2 pound lean ground turkey
16 oz can of diced tomatoes (use no sodium added for even more of a healthy kick)
1 diced onion
2 cups chopped carrots
1 cup peas
1 cup green beans
2 cups chopped broccoli
2 diced potatoes
4 chopped garlic cloves
salt and pepper to taste
24 oz of water
***This is a versatile recipe, feel free to omit or add any vegetable that suits your taste buds***

Brown turkey, garlic and onions until onions are translucent.  Add remaining ingredients and simmer on medium heat for about an hour.  If you want you can also put this in the crock pot and fix it and forget it on low heat all day long.  A nice loaf of French or Italian bread goes well with this.  Also a sprinkling of shredded cheese is an added bonus in camouflaging the veggies for picky kids (and or husbands!)

P.S. We still make this soup at the restaurant and normally the employees eat it all before we can even unlock the doors to the public!  I love you Karen, thank you for teaching me how to make this soup!
