  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 medium yellow onion, finely chopped
  • 2 medium carrots, peeled and sliced into 1/4-inch thick slices (about 1 cup carrots)
  • 2 medium ribs celery, diced into 1/2-in cubes (about 1 cup celery)
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 6 cups chicken broth
  • 2 cans (15 oz each) cannellini beans, drained
  • 2 cups 1-in cubed cooked turkey
  • 6 oz dry orzo, cooked according to package instructions
  • 4 cups firmly packed fresh kale, finely chopped into bite-sized leaves
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh rosemary
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • In a large soup pot or dutch oven, heat olive oil over medium-high heat until shimmery. Add onion, carrot, and celery. Saute 3-5 minutes until vegetables begin to soften. Add garlic and saute 1 additional minute until fragrant.
  • Pour chicken broth and beans into pot and stir to combine. Ladle half of soup into a high-speed blender and blend on high speed until completely smooth. Return back to remaining soup and bring soup to a simmer over medium-high heat.
  • Once soup is simmering, add turkey, orzo, kale, lemon juice, rosemary, and season with salt and pepper to taste. Let cook 5-10 minutes until kale is wilted. Serve soup hot and enjoy!
