Mama's Soup

I saw a soup like this online, and I knew I had to make it. It's pure comfort. It hints of an Italian Wedding Soup, but it's super easy to make. I took out the coconut milk, swapped some veggies, amped up my spices, added raw zucchini noodles to bottom of the bowl, and topped them with this stunner...



  • 3-4 T Olive Oil

  • 1 lb Ground Turkey, 93% fat free

  • 1 head Scallion - green tops only, minced

  • 1 clove Garlic, minced - optional

  • 1 cup Celery Root, cubed

  • 1 bulb Fennel, diced

  • 2 cups Collard Greens, stems included, chopped

  • 1 T ground Fennel Seed

  • 1 tsp Oregano

  • 1/4 tsp Red Pepper Flakes

  • 1/2 tsp Kosher Salt, more to taste

  • 5-6 cups Chicken Stock

  • Zest of one Lemon

  • Black Pepper

  • Zucchini Noodles if desired


  • Heat oil in stock pot over medium-high heat. Brown turkey and then remove from pan.

  • Sauté scallions, celery root and fennel until lightly browned. Add spices (and garlic) and mix well. 

  • Add turkey back to pan. Mix well.

  • Add chicken stock and collards. Bring to a boil and then simmer on low for 10 minutes. 

  • Remove from heat. Add zest and salt and pepper to taste. 

  • Enjoy with zucchini noodles and a little parmesan cheese if you eat dairy.
