The carrots made it sweeter than I prefer, so I added some BBQ rub spice mix and it came out incredible.

This recipe is very similar to another soup I've made, main difference is that you finish with balsamic vinegar and grated Parmesan instead of soy sauce and lemon.

I'm always a sucker for a one-pot meal. This was super easy, and it was warm and filling on a cold night! Used baby kale because that's what I had on hand and less prep than chopping up big leaves.

I made the recipe for 8, but used turkey for 4. Also had zucchini to use so added that. It was very good!
