Healthy Creamy Herbed Turkey Soup Recipe
Because It's Always Turkey Season...When an HG fan who is obsessed with the Creamy Herbed Turkey Soup at Sweet Tomatoes (a.k.a. Souplantation) emailed us pleading for a Hungry Girl swap, we were happy to oblige! BTW, using cauliflower as a way to up the creaminess factor in soups is pure GENIUS!

SmartPoints® value 4*
Cook: 45 minutes
4 cups roughly chopped cauliflower
10 oz. raw boneless skinless turkey (or chicken) breast cutlet
3/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. black pepper
2 cups fat-free milk
2 tbsp. plus 2 tsp. light whipped butter or light buttery spread
3/4 cup chopped onion
3/4 cup chopped carrots
3/4 cup chopped celery
1 tsp. poultry seasoning
3/4 tsp. dried parsley
1 1/2 cups turkey (or chicken) broth
1 cup turkey stuffing mix (about 1/3rd of a 6-oz. box)
Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Cook cauliflower until very tender, about 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, cook turkey. If needed, pound turkey to an even thickness. Season with 1/8 tsp. each salt and pepper. Bring a large skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium heat.
Cook turkey for about 4 minutes per side, until cooked through. Chop into bite-sized pieces.
Transfer cauliflower to a strainer to drain.
Place drained cauliflower in a blender or food processor. Add milk, and puree until mostly smooth and uniform.
Over medium-high heat, melt 2 tbsp. butter in the (empty) pot. Add veggies, and sprinkle with 1/8 tsp. each salt and pepper. Cook and stir until slightly softened, about 5 minutes.
Add cauliflower puree, chopped turkey, poultry seasoning, and parsley to the pot. Add 1 cup broth, remaining 1/2 tsp. salt, and remaining 1/4 tsp. pepper.
Once boiling, reduce to a simmer. Cover and cook for 15 minutes, or until veggies are tender.
Meanwhile, in a medium-large microwave-safe bowl, combine stuffing mix, remaining 1/2 cup broth, and remaining 2 tsp. butter. Mix well. Cover and microwave for 5 minutes, or until liquid has been absorbed. Using a fork, gently mix until light and fluffy.
Evenly top each serving of soup with stuffing, about 1/4 cup each.
