Turkey, Barley and Vegetable Soup Recipe
There's nothing like a good, hearty bowl of soup to warm you up, especially in these Minnesota winters. It's snowing really hard here today. We are cooped up in the house under blankets, looking at the beautiful snow outside. So glad I'm in here and not out there!
This soup turned out absolutely delicious! The broth is nice and light, and I love all of the veggies, especially the butter beans. The ground turkey is great too! This one cooks up fairly fast, so it would be a great week night or weekend meal. Enjoy!
